"Definitely recommend! Provides an extremely thorough exposure to an LBO model with a detailed understanding of its fundamentals. Great to get hands-on experience as the side by side walk through the model with the instructors makes it more intuitive."

"I definitely picked up a lot of useful tricks and knowledge, both through the prep-work and the virtual training, despite having prior knowledge of financial modeling and Excel use. There's always more to learn and the instructor quality as well as all the learning resources that you provide made this really useful."

"It is comprehensive and gives you a good snapshot of the job. It definitely gave me a great view into the full deal process and parts that I had missed. I was able to ask a lot of questions. Also, the materials are very useful for future reference. Thank you so much for the course today."

"Great overview of the softer points of working in PE, especially for people without a finance background. Typically, you get a lot about modelling etc., but this part of the job is important as well. Both teachers were great. I think having two is much better than one, given how different deals/work experiences can be."

"The course covered really helpful and relevant content about the deal process, beyond just running the valuation. I thought the general overview of the process was nuanced and helpful. Other courses I've taken were more focused on the modeling mechanics."
