The PE Masterclass: Crushing the paper LBO is just the beginning…

Led by former private equity professional with applied expertise in LBO modeling methodologies, this seminar begins with a deep dive into the Private Equity deal process and the day-to-day responsibilities of a PE professional. The boot camp then turns to modeling, where participants will learn how to build a real, complex LBO model the way it’s done on the job.

What You’ll Learn:
  • LBO Modeling & the PE Deal Process – The Private Equity Boot Camp teaches trainees how to construct comprehensive LBO models used to support real transactions. But effective PE professionals must also understand the nuances of the private equity deal process and the non-modeling day-to-day responsibilities of a PE professional.
  • Led by PE Professionals – This boot camp is NOT an academic exercise. It is taught by PE professionals who have been involved in some of the most high-profile private equity deals in the last 10 years.
  • Learn from the Private Equity’s #1 Trainer – 4 of the Top 5 Private Equity firms globally use Wall Street Prep to train their incoming PE Analysts and Associates. Attending this program gives you access to the same virtual training.
Who Should Attend?
  • Investment banking analysts planning to or actively interviewing for PE
  • MBAs and undergraduates pursuing private equity
  • Current private equity professionals seeking to improve their skill set
  • Leveraged finance and credit professionals seeking a better understanding of their PE clients’ process
