I started this course last year when I was doing my MBA
Because of the proficiency I got I managed to apply for an operation coordinator position at Uber South Africa which I got. I knew nothing before the course and now I do a job that is excel based.
I was looking to get more familiar with the wide range of modeling tasks I was given in my first-year investment banking job that I started in – everything from simple three-statement models to much more complex LBOs, and to prepare myself for the upcoming private equity recruiting season in which building LBOs from scratch is a critical component of the interview.
WSP courses seemed to be the most succinctly organized yet also the most comprehensive. Other courses I looked at were either too lengthy or too circuitous in their topic material.
I haven’t completed the entire course yet (mostly focused on LBO modeling component), but what I’ve covered so far has been both thorough and properly paced.
I’ve had several PE interviews thus far and have done well on the modeling tests, and at work itself the modeling tasks have become much less imposing as I’ve firmed up my technical foundations through this program.
My goal was to improve my modeling efficiency and pick up some new tricks. Academic models don’t cut it, and it can take a long time to catch up with the learning curve with on the job learning.
The course is great so far. I have picked up a lot of time saving tips, and just helps deconstruct some complex models I have been working with.
I look forward to engaging with the rest of the modules
The program has helped me greatly improve the speed and efficiency of working with any model, as well as giving me a leg up on my peers, which is nice since bonus time is around the corner.
My main goal was to gain a deep understanding on company valuation and follow a good methodology. I’m currently looking for new job opportunities after 8-10 years of experience and want to re-enforce my knowledge in finance and accounting to remain competitive.
So far, it’s been outstanding. Due to my background in finance, I already had some knowledge but will apply a better methodology for company valuation. I also appreciated that the session speaker went through excel shortcuts as it’s been very useful.
The WSP courses had been a really great refresher to some topics I had learned in university and has been a great introduction to many topics that are relevant in the online installment loans South Carolina finance profession.
Having an online course was key. At this level, being able to determine the study pace is critical. Supporting documents were terrific.
I recently graduated with a major in finance and a full-scholarship from the Dominican Government to complete my studies in Mexico at Tecnologico de Monterrey. I wanted to upgrade my knowledge in order to fit and add more value to some IB firms I was applying to.
It is an awesome course that helped me to find a good paying job in IB, which has helping me to support my family back in Dominican Republic :). This course helped me to level up and outperform almost all of my peers at my university.
I’m at a long-short fund, and training is difficult to come by given resources available in-house, so I joined WSP. Very good program! It made me more comfortable modeling and allowed me to move more into equities.
I’m a senior analyst in a corporate advisory firm in Melbourne. I chose WSP because it appeared to be the most highly regarded among the big financial institutions and came highly recommended by past users.
