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:

So, Which Course is Right for You?

If you want in-person training, or you really care about Excel macros (even though there are dozens of other Excel macros available, such as those offered by Macabacus and various banks), go with WSP.

But if you care the most about how to use financial modeling in real life to make investment recommendations and advise clients, BIWS wins.

But instead of taking our word for it, why not see for yourself in a risk-free environment?

We offer the most generous money-back guarantee available on the market: You have 12 months to try any of our courses, and if you're not satisfied, you can request a full refund for ANY reason.

We also give away a huge amount of free content to sample before you invest in anything, so check out our YouTube channel with 100+ free videos or our free financial modeling tutorial series first.
