About Breaking Into Wall Street

Want to Land Lucrative Positions at Investment Banks, Private Equity Firms, and Hedge Funds?

Then you need to know financial modeling like the back of your hand. Just one problem: other training companies might teach you the formulas, but they don’t teach you how to use the financial models in real life.

Breaking Into Wall StreetTM offers a completely different approach by teaching you how to use financial modeling to make investment recommendations and advise clients – in other words, you learn how to put all those Excel files to use in real life, the same way you do when working in the finance industry.

Our courses are all based on case studies where you have to advise a client, make an investment recommendation, or decide whether or not a deal makes sense – and the coverage is global, including companies and assets across the six inhabited continents.

Our proven training covers:

  • Investment Banking Pitch Books
  • Hedge Fund Stock Pitches
  • Equity Research Reports
  • Project Finance Equity and Debt Analysis
  • Growth Equity Investment Recommendations
  • Accounting and 3-Statement Modeling
  • Merger Models and Leveraged Buyout (LBO) Models
  • Private Equity Investment Recommendations
  • Deal Recommendations to Clients
  • Real Estate Deal and Financing Analysis
  • Venture Capital Cap Tables and Analysis
  • Valuation and Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) Analysis
  • Credit and Fixed-Income Analysis
  • And more…

We teach you everything you need to know to win interviews and job offers at banks, PE firms, and hedge funds, and then succeed once you’re on the job. Students who have invested in our training have achieved significant results – which you can read about right here.
