    The Wall Street Prep course is a great way to learn more about the type of work that is done in the finance industry from a highly experienced professional. It was a great experience for me because it provided insight into the tools that a professional in finance would use on a daily basis. It also really showed me how powerful and important Excel is in the finance industry.

    The Wall Street Prep course helped me model important, real-life finance entities. Also, the Bowdoin College Finance society was especially helpful in the groundwork of this workshop with their assistance in Excel for beginners both before and during the workshop.
