Rank: The Pro | 44,657

hey guys, just wanted to give you the heads up about a new program we've launched in partnership with The Analyst Exchange as an option for the summer.

The Analyst Advantage Summer Internship and Training Program

Summer 2009: 7/6/09 - 8/21/09

The Analyst Advantage Program couples the Analyst Exchange's premier financial modeling training program with a world-class internship to best prepare a candidate for a full-time position in finance. What the summer program offers:

  1. Three-week intensive finance training program covering accounting, consolidated financial statements modeling, mergers and acquisitions modeling, leveraged buyouts and valuation. Through teaching the concepts, applying real-world examples, and building a relevant model, the trainee will gain the skills necessary to become a successful analyst.

* Each candidate then builds a case study, which will be presented to a team of reviewers as an investment banking executive would to a client. Additional scenarios are modeled to give the trainee more practice.

* Each week industry professionals as guest speakers will address the current market perspective.

* The experience will be enhanced with trips to the New York Stock Exchange, an Investment Bank trading floor, and a dinner cruise around the Statue of Liberty and the famous New York skyline.

* Courses taught by seasoned Wall Street professionals

* Trainers have had "big five" firm experience and instruct not from an academic perspective, but as if the trainee is the analyst on the job.

  1. Guaranteed four-week internship at a premier private equity or venture capital fund is offered to each candidate after the training program. Here the skills taught will be honed as they work on real-world business transactions. Before purchasing the program each candidate that makes it to the final round will be matched up with a firm before deciding to proceed.

In order to apply for this program please send your resume to [email protected] and a representative will contact you.

The total cost for the training and the internship placement is $4,995.
