I graduated with a degree in engineering but wanted to transition into finance. I found the pre-prepared spreadsheets were great to work with and all the supplementary material in general was very well organized, allowing me to easily follow the lessons and learn financial modeling.
The most effective part of the course in my opinion was how the different modules were structured. I appreciated how each individual video covered by and large only one topic and rarely lasted longer than 15 minutes. This made the topics appear much more digestible. I was ultimately able to get an internship in P.E. These videos helped give me the confidence I needed to get through my interviews.
The material is communicated very concisely, there is no fluff or useless information, and I found that to be very helpful. Additionally, the presentation of the material is done in a very logical, step-by-step structure. I interviewed for an analyst position and the technical skills I learned from the WSP premium package proved invaluable during the interview. My interviewers were impressed, and I largely attribute that to studying the WSP premium package videos.
The Premium Package allowed me to gain a better understanding of Excel modeling, MA processes, investment banking, and the numerous topics covered in the webinars. It was a great experience because I am more of a hands-on learner as opposed to a classroom settings. I loved having the PDF files along with Excel templates to walk through the program at my own speed. I now consider myself an Excel guru and I absolutely love it!
This program allowed me to apply the finance and accounting basics I learned in college to real world and on the job scenarios.
I am a corporate finance analyst at a Big Four firm and wanted to be able to face models with complex targets and to know specific topics such as deferred tax assets and liabilities, dilution of shares, LBOs, etc
The Premium Package helped me increase my understanding of how basic finance and accounting principles are used on the job. It also helped increase my knowledge about the interview process, which was important for me in this stage of my career.
I’m currently a junior at Northwestern and my main goal when I bought the Premium Package was to prepare for investment banking interviews and internships and to have an advantage over other interns
The course is giving me a lot of insight into how to look at financial statements from an investment perspective and into the activities IBs do on the job. Since I come from a non-target school without a degree focused on finance, I believe I needed a deeper-than-average knowledge of financial modeling for an entry role.
I liked the ability to be able to download/stream the step by step videos on the road, as I travel around various countries each week. The courses were structured seamlessly. The workflow that dipped into accounting theory and presentations was very well done, as it set the context before jumping into the meat of the model. I would recommend the Premium Package to anyone.
I first went through a few free courses you offer, as well as some free courses offered through other providers. WSP courses are just easier to understand, don’t come across in a monotonous voice, and are completely video based, not just text-based.
The course structure is great, the Extra resources breakdown of topics and the quick run-through on what’s happening before actually modeling helped solidify the material and drive in the factors happening behind the scenes. Having modeling experience is a definite plus and always looks good on a resume!
