What You Get – And What the BIWS Financial Modeling
Mastery Course Will Do for You…

When you’re interviewing for internships and full-time positions at investment banks, you’ll always get a few questions over and over…

  • How much do you know about accounting?
  • Can you walk me through a valuation?
  • What happens in a merger model or LBO model when you adjust the assumptions…
  • How would you describe your financial modeling skills?

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.

The Financial Modeling Mastery course helps you gain all that real-world knowledge via video-based training created by investment bankers.

You’ll get a total of 308 videos – everything you need to beat the competition in interviews and get a head start before you start working. You’ll also get detailed written guides and word-for-word transcripts to make it easier to scan and review the topics.


We base everything in the Financial Modeling Mastery course on what investment bankers and other finance professionals actually do in real life:

  • To gain the proper background, you’ll start by learning key accounting and finance concepts with examples based on real companies, such as Target and Best Buy; you’ll learn how the financial statements link together and how you can analyze them with key metrics and ratios.
  • Then, you’ll move into the “global case studies,” which include companies such as Toro (U.S.), Atlassian (Australia), EasyJet (U.K.), Vivendi (France), Steel Dynamics (U.S.), Jazz Pharmaceuticals (U.S.), Builders FirstSource / BMC Stock Holdings (U.S.), SunPower / Maxeon (U.S. and Singapore), Fortum / Uniper (Finland and Germany), NichiiGakkan (Japan), Great Canadian Gaming Corporation (Canada), Viridor (U.K.), (U.S.), Kakao / Daum (Korea), and Netflix (U.S.).
  • In each case study, you’ll analyze a company or deal, build a model, and then make an investment recommendation or recommend the proper price and deal structure – and you’ll answer written questions about each one. This is the type of work you do all day in investment banking, private equity, and hedge funds.

Through these case studies, you’ll discover how to:

  • Build 3-statement projection models and answer accounting questions in interviews.
  • Understand Equity Value and Enterprise Value at a deep level – way beyond whatever the paid monkey army on Investopedia or Wikipedia says about these concepts!
  • Value a company – including how to find public comps and precedent transaction, how to build a DCF model, and how to use the valuation output in a stock pitch, a pitch book, and an equity research report.

Create merger models – including how to combine and adjust the financial statements, evaluate accretion/dilution
and other metrics, and how to use the model to advise clients on their best options.

Build LBO models, from the transaction assumptions to the debt schedules, financial projections, cash flows, and calculations of the IRR and money-on-money multiples – and the investment recommendation at the end.
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.
