Boot Camp Overview

  • Used widely at top business schools to prepare students for recruiting
  • Led by former investment bankers with extensive knowledge of the recruiting process
  • Learn the questions you'll be asked. Prepare your answers.

Finance interviews are notoriously difficult. Firms want to make sure candidates are 100% committed before devoting resources to mentor and develop them. As such, solid preparation for technical questions is an absolute MUST.

Luckily, we’re here to help: This boot camp walks you step-by-step through all the concepts you need to know and the exercises you might be asked to perform in the interview room. At completion, you’ll be able to adeptly showcase your knowledge of accounting, valuation, DCF, M&A and LBOs.

What You'll Learn

Technical Finance Interview Prep

We begin with an overview of the financial industry and typical post-undergraduate and MBA roles. Students then progress step-by-step through accounting, valuation, M&A and leveraged buyout concepts commonly encountered in the technical interview. We pay particular attention to the level of detail needed to construct comprehensive answers that won't leave interviewees vulnerable to increasingly technical follow-ups.

Pre-Seminar Excel training

This boot camp assumes proficiency in Excel. Enrollment includes access to our popular Excel Crash Course for those who need an Excel refresher.

Wall Street Prep Virtual Training

WSP virtual training events are NOT your traditional online classes. We’ve all been there: You log in only to watch a presenter go back and forth from webcam to screen share.

A WSP Virtual Boot Camp is an engaging learning experience that preserves the opportunity for instructor-trainee interaction, experiential learning and networking with fellow learners. Learners move back and forth between classroom lecture, small group breakout rooms, competitions and 1-on-1 conversations at a lively pace.
