Top 9 Reasons Why Investment Banks, Private Equity Firms and Hedge Funds Choose Breaking Into Wall Street for Financial Modeling Training

  • The Most Effective Way to Train Your Staff in the Art of Real-Life Financial Modeling Skills BIWS was created by bankers, for bankers, to help finance professionals learn real-life financial modeling skills. When your staff members enroll in our courses, they master immediately useful skills they can use on the job.Our training uses real-life case studies of actual companies such as Apple, Microsoft, JPMorgan, Exxon Mobil and more. We use real deals, such as Microsoft's proposed $44 billion acquisition of Yahoo!, and Exxon Mobil's $41 billion acquisition of XTO Energy, to teach all the concepts based on the real world, as opposed to textbook theory.
  • Eliminate the Training Productivity Drain Say goodbye to the missing hours and days that can be lost when you use traditional lecture-style training.BIWS offers 100% self-paced online training, which means that your staff can complete training outside their normal work hours or during their downtime, and you can manage training times when it suits your firm – not the trainer.
  • 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.
  • Lifetime Expert Support for Your Staff BIWS is the first and only provider to not only train your staff, but to also support your staff long after the fact – with updates, live Q&A, ongoing assessments and progress reporting.All our courses come with unlimited, lifetime 365-day support from our expert support team, each of whom has investment banking, private equity, or transaction advisory experience. Your staff will receive support for as long as they remain with your firm, meaning that your own senior-level staff members don't need to be tied up helping team members with accounting, valuation or finance questions.
  • 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 staff members who successfully pass each test. Our quizzes test conceptual understanding and more advanced nuances.
  • Only BIWS Trains Your People and Tracks Progress, Without The Need For Extensive Management Oversight

    Managers have told us they want three things from their training partner:

    • 1. It must be effective at building high-level skills.
    • 2. It must be accountable, so you know at a glance who has successfully acquired the skills.
    • 3. It must be easy to administer and manage.

    BIWS Delivers these three benefits much better than traditional classroom training alternatives. Here’s how:

    • 1. Our training portal allows each trainee to thoroughly master content at their own individual pace, mark their progress and take notes along the way. Staff can’t just "sit through a few days of training". They actually have to acquire the skills that will add value to your firm.
    • 2. Managers can tell at a glance which staff members have completed the training by simply checking who has been awarded certifications from our rigorous online testing.
    • 3. All support and Q&A is handled by our expert team on an individualized basis. As a manager, all you really have to do is sign up, point your team members to our portal and wait for each staff member to pass our testing.
  • Outsource Creation and Management of Training Resources Should you update or create your own internal training resources? Or should you book a new training provider to deliver classroom training for a few days?With BIWS, you no longer need to make that difficult decision because all our training materials are available on-demand, 24/7, and are updated and improved over time. We periodically add new case studies and exams to ensure that all the lessons remain useful and relevant. All of that means that you save a huge amount of time and money since you no longer have to oversee creation of your own materials or in-person training sessions from other providers.
