Breaking Into Wall Street (BIWS) vs. Wall Street Prep (WSP)

How Do Breaking Into Wall Street and Wall Street Prep Compare? And Which One Is Right For You?

Students and professionals often ask us how our Breaking Into Wall Street (BIWS) courses differ from those offered by other providers such as Wall Street Prep (WSP).

Both sets of courses cover some common ground, but there are also important differences that may make one program more appropriate for your needs.

This site is obviously the home of Breaking Into Wall Street, so we're not going to pretend as if this is a 100% fair, unbiased comparison. That said, we're also not going to insult your intelligence by setting up a series of straw-man criteria where we always win.

We firmly believe our courses are better, but we also don't "win" in every single category. Here are the key points of difference as we see them:
