Why take this course with us?

We know there are other schools that teach about finance and investment banking. But we think we're the best. Here's why:

Small interactive classes

There's a reason that you are considering taking a class rather than reading a book. You want to make sure that you understand the concepts and comprehend the material. You want your questions answered. And you don't want to feel like you are anonymous, sitting in a big lecture hall. Small class sizes (no more than 20 students) ensure that our classes are interactive and maximize your learning experience.

Extremely qualified instructors

Our instructors have significant transaction experience in a wide range of investment banking activities as well as significant teaching experience. And even though our course is geared towards the practical aspects of finance, our instructors have the knowledge base to teach you the supporting theory and concepts. They're even occasionally funny, making learning finance, dare we say, enjoyable. Read more about our Senior Instructor

Top quality teaching materials

We feel very strongly that the quality of our teaching materials matches the quality of our instructors. Our class presentations have been carefully developed to enhance your understanding of the financial concepts. Moreover, our Excel models and homework assignments have been created specifically to complement our presentation materials and to substantially accelerate your ability to apply the financial concepts in practice.

Lifetime relationships

Our relationship with our students doesn't end when the last class is over. Through our alumni network, we hope to maintain an ongoing relationship with you as your career progresses. Further, the alumni network allows you to form and maintain relationships with other students in order to network and share experiences and career advice.
