Over the past 5 years, Breaking Into Wall Street has helped 22,981+ students and entry-level professionals launch lucrative careers in investment banking, private equity, hedge funds, equity research, corporate finance, and related fields.
We spent over a year with our ear to the ground, analyzing every comment (over 5,622 of them) and every support email (yep, there were 3,212+ of them too) to uncover what NEW challenges BIWS members are facing in today's real-world job market.
Here’s what we discovered, and how the job market and interviews themselves have changed...
In response to all those changes, we developed the brand NEW version of this course that aligns with these new expectations.
You'll learn the concepts and put them into practice with companies and deals across 4 continents, and you'll complete a series of case study presentations and written responses for the major topic areas.
Plus, you'll test yourself along the way on both the concepts and the execution, with quiz questions, Excel exercises, and written documents and case study prompts.
When you're interviewing for internships and full-time positions at investment banks, you'll always get a few questions over and over...
When you master real-world techniques and case studies, you have a significantly better chance of landing prime jobs and internships with the top investment banks, private equity firms, and hedge funds.
Excel & Financial Modeling Fundamentals 3.0 lets you gain all that real-world knowledge via video-based training created by investment bankers.
You'll get a total of 290 videos (109 hours of training) – everything you need to beat the competition in interviews and get a head-start before you start working. You also get word-for-word transcripts of all the videos, to make scanning and note-taking even easier.
MUCH MORE THAN THEORY
We base everything in the Excel & Financial Modeling Fundamentals 3.0 course on what investment bankers actually do in real life:
Through these case studies, you'll discover how to:
The information you'll find is so detailed and so thorough that our customers regularly come from top-ranked universities, investment banks, and business schools.
Once you've completed the training, here's what you'll be able to write on your resume / CV:

How To Set Yourself Even Further Apart from the Competition
For “extra credit” - you can print out the models from the Excel & Financial Modeling Fundamentals 3.0 course and during your interviews, you can describe exactly what you learned in the training – you’ll set yourself apart right there. Not only will they see what you’ve done, they’ll ‘get’ that you go the extra mile.
And now there's one more powerful way to set yourself apart from the pack...
After completing the course materials, you’ll be eligible to take our challenging Certification Quiz. Once you earn a score of at least 90%, you’ll be issued a personalized Certificate of Achievement with your name, the course name, and the date you passed the quiz:
Your Certificate of Achievement can be added to your resume/CV and/or presented in interviews to set yourself apart from other candidates.
We also make sure employers know how challenging the certification process is: Your certificate will contain a link where prospective employers can review what’s on our exams and what you must master to receive certification.
Unlike other training companies that “issue certifications,” our process is completely transparent: you can literally point to the exact questions you had to answer to pass the quiz and become certified.
Here’s specifically what the NEW Excel and Financial Modeling Fundamentals 3.0 course gives you:
You'll learn exactly what financial modeling is and why we care about it. Understand how it applies on the job in investment banking, private equity, hedge funds, equity research, corporate finance, and more.
We’ll explore accounting from a business perspective, and we’ll drill down using examples of our own online business to teach you how and why the 3 financial statements work the way they do – and you’ll understand how to think about the rules that link the statements.
You'll get a crash course on the 4 main categories of accounting-related interview questions here, and you’ll learn about more advanced topics, such as LIFO vs. FIFO for Inventory, Operating Leases vs. Capital Leases, Unrealized Gains, Pension Accounting, Equity Investments and Non-controlling Interests, Net Operating Losses, PIK interest, and tax-related items on the financial statements.
You will see exactly how to project the 3 financial statements of Atlassian - a private software company based in Australia – and then you’ll use your model to create an investment recommendation on the company and determine whether or not Accel and T. Rowe Price, the company’s key investors, can achieve their targeted IRRs and cash-on-cash multiples.
In this case study, you will create more complex 3-statement projections over a 5-year period for EasyJet [LSE: EZJ], the largest airline in the UK, with over 600 routes in 32 countries. You’ll use your detailed projections to determine how much its Return on Capital Employed (ROCE) could increase by over the next 5 years, and then use the output of this exercise to make a recommendation to the Portfolio Manager at your hedge fund or asset management firm.
In this case study, you will analyze the financial statements of Vivendi, a leading French media and telecom conglomerate. You’ll use the information to calculate its Equity Value, Enterprise Value, and key valuation metrics and multiples. You’ll understand precisely what these numbers tell you about Vivendi’s valuation relative to its peer companies.
In this case study, you’ll begin to build a detailed valuation for Jazz Pharmaceuticals, a US-based healthcare company focused on “orphan drugs,” by selecting an appropriate set of comparable public companies and precedent transactions, and then running the numbers and calculating the key metrics and multiples for both sets.
You will continue with the Jazz case study and build a DCF model that supports different scenarios for Jazz’s future drug pipeline and key patent expiration dates; you will learn not only how to model Free Cash Flow and use it in a DCF, but also how to calculate WACC, Cost of Equity, Cost of Debt, and more, and how to use them when estimating a company’s discount rate.
We conclude the Jazz Pharmaceuticals case study, and show you how to USE a valuation in a wide variety of different roles: investment banking, equity research, hedge funds / asset management, private equity, corporate development, and more. You’ll create a client advisory presentation, equity research report, and stock pitch to support your findings.
In this case study, you’ll analyze the M&A deal between Jos. A. Bank and Men’s Wearhouse, two leading US-based men’s clothing retailers. You’ll make a recommendation on the purchase price and deal structure, and draw some conclusions on the possible accretion / dilution and merits of the deal.
In this case study, you’ll analyze Suntory Holdings' $16 billion acquisition of Beam, the world’s 4th largest premium spirits company at the time of the acquisition. You’ll learn more advanced nuances of merger models here, including what to do for cross-border (Japan / US) deals, how to combine valuation work and M&A analysis, how to use quarterly projections in your models, and how to make a detailed recommendation to your client based on the numbers.
In this case study, you’ll analyze Carlyle’s leveraged buyout of 7 Days Inn, one of the leading business travel hotel chains in China. You’ll get a crash course on the concepts behind leveraged buyouts, and then you’ll complete a quick but accurate analysis for this deal and use it to make an investment recommendation.
You will build a more advanced LBO model for Apollo’s buyout of Chuck E. Cheese's, a US-based kids' restaurant chain, in this case study. You’ll add more advanced debt schedules and revenue/expense/CapEx assumptions to your model, and you’ll learn how options such as PIK interest, NOLs and deferred taxes, and sponsor-issued dividends impact the model. At the end, you will write an investment recommendation on the deal.
At last count, over 22,981+ students, entry-level professionals and career changers have used Breaking Into Wall Street to master modeling, win interviews, and break into high-paying jobs in investment banking, private equity, hedge funds, equity research, and more.
