Top 10 Reasons Why Universities, Business Schools, and Student Groups Choose Breaking Into Wall Street for Financial Modeling Training:

There are several companies that offer financial modeling and investment banking training to university and MBA students. Here's what makes Breaking Into Wall Street unique:

  • BIWS Builds a Bridge from the Classroom to the Finance Industry In investment banking and finance interviews, applicants are expected to demonstrate more than just academic achievement – they must understand how to analyze, value and model companies in real-life. BIWS prepares students to demonstrate this in-depth understanding of financial modeling concepts during interviews. And banks tend to hire applicants who have demonstrated that they can "hit the ground running," because they don't want to spend months training new hires.
  • Real-Life "Virtual Deal Experience" Complements University Studies BIWS training uses real-life case studies based on actual companies such as Apple, Microsoft, JPMorgan, Avalon Bay and more. The Advanced Financial Modeling and Industry-Specific Modeling courses are based on real deals, such as Exxon Mobil's $41 billion acquisition of XTO Energy and Microsoft's proposed $44 billion acquisition of Yahoo!.Students will be able to impress employers by backing up their academic credentials with solid "virtual deal experience." We also add bonus case studies based on recent deals periodically.
  • Online Training, On-Demand 24/7 to Fit Student Lifestyles Many training courses require students to attend in-person lectures that can be difficult to fit around busy schedules. And the lecture format suggests a "cramming" approach, without adequate time for practice, troubleshooting or Q&A.By contrast, BIWS is the first and only 100% interactive learning platform in the financial modeling training field. All our digital content is fully downloadable to almost any device, including iPads, iPhones, iPods, and all desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones. Students enjoy the flexibility to study when they want and where they want. And we provide unlimited 365-day per year support, to ensure that students can get help whenever they need it.
  • Uses the Proprietary B.A.S.E.S. Methodology for Faster Learning Many other training courses rely on a lecture format – watch the instructor discuss a topic, attempt to take notes or follow along the whole time, and then try to remember what you learned at the end… assuming that you did learn it the first time around.But lectures are not an effective way to teach complex concepts that require application of the material and practice. BIWS uses the proprietary B.A.S.E.S. Methodology, which allows students to integrate their new knowledge and skills much more quickly. Here's how it works:
    • B is for Before: We show you the "Before" version of a model.
    • A is for After: We show you the "After" version of the model, with the required steps completed correctly.
    • S is for Study: You learn how the model is put together, by following along with detailed step-by-step video training.
    • E is for Execute: You build the model yourself.
    • S is for Scrutinize: You check your work against the "After" model.
    The B.A.S.E.S. Methodology ensures that students do much more than just looking at a finished financial model – it teaches you to build the model yourself, step-by-step, and then check your work against a correct, finished version.
  • Track and Verify Progress with Challenging Certification Tests BIWS courses feature challenging tests that put participants through their paces once they have completed the course materials, and we provide certifications to students who successfully pass each test. Our quizzes test conceptual understanding and more advanced nuances.
  • The BIWS Student Community Accelerates Learning With 22,981+ members and counting, students will become part of a vibrant and supportive community that thrives on shared knowledge and experiences. The answers to students' next challenging interview questions could be a click away in one of the hundreds of discussion threads active at any one time in our Secure Members' Area.There are dozens of new questions answered each week, so over time this community will only become more and more valuable – and you'll gain the benefit of thousands of previous and current students' questions and answers.
  • Unlimited Lifetime Support, 365 Days Per Year Many training providers deliver their materials and then "disappear," without providing ongoing support to answer the inevitable questions that arise. All BIWS courses come with unlimited 365-day lifetime support from our expert support team, each of whom has investment banking, private equity, or transaction advisory experience.
  • 12-Month Money-Back Guarantee All BIWS courses and programs come with a no-questions-asked 12-Month Money-Back Guarantee. We believe in the quality of our courses, but if you are not satisfied for some reason, simply let us know via the contact form on our website and you will receive a prompt and courteous refund.
  • Generous Discounts for Organizations, Classes and Student Groups We offer significant discounts on all our courses for university and MBA classes and registered student groups, based on purchase volume. Contact us with your requirements and we will be happy to prepare a quote.
