Trainee Feedback

We use your Premium Package program to train incoming analysts and we couldn’t be happier with the results. The learning experience of having videos synchronized with step-by-step manuals is preferable even to a live class. We looked at a number of options in the space and found WSP to have the most complete offering.
— Alex Tsukernik, Managing Director, Syntella Partners
Wall Street Prep picks up where MBA programs leave off. While MBA programs focus on theory and strategy, WSP focuses on tactics and how-to. WSP and an MBA work very well together. I highly recommend to students that they augment their classroom studies with a Wall Street Prep course.
— David Cass, MBA Assistant Director, Leeds School of Business
I'm a sophomore finance student at the University of London. I have only good things to say about the course! The pace is perfect and the model templates help a ton in facilitating and accentuating the lessons. Being a college student, I dare even say this course is better than the lecturers at my school.
