Training The Street

I know in this tough market career advice is particularly welcome. Having worked in the investment banking industry I thought I'd share some of my career advice.
For those looking to get into investment banking or build their finance skill set I would recommend taking a course that covers real-world content used on the job to give yourself a leg up.
I have explored many of the training options available. A few of the more popular training companies are Training The Street, Wall Street Prep and Investment Banking Institute.
Of the training companies available Training The Street is far and away the best. They train at pretty much every investment bank on Wall Street so you know that the material they teach you is what you need on the job.
They offer several open enrollment programs and just launched an evening class that begins in April. If you are looking for a job or want to build your finance skill-set in order to keep your current job, then definitely take a Training The Street course. They are the best and will give you a competitive edge in the current choppy job market.
Good luck everyone!

Well, thanks for the shameless promotion fellas. This post was obviously written by the company itself. This is not the place to get free advertising guys, and who cares that you trained at the banks; I mean look at where they are now... In all seriousness, I was hoping for some unbiased opinions here, REAL STUFF. I was looking to read something from someone who took the class. It's been almost 10 months since they started this thread, and not even 1 other comment. At this point I'll just speak with some of my friends in the industry and see what they say. After all, who knows if any of this is worth it anyway? Good luck to anyone else that stumbles across this post. Peace.

Try The Analyst Exchange if you want "real-world" type of training. I took both - training the street is ok, but it's very basic. Analyst Exchange was a bit more my speed - they also link up training with case studies and internships. I took their summer program this summer and just got a job offer at an IBank, so I'm pretty siked about it right now!

I'm an analyst now at a middle market IB boutique - during recruiting last year I did a lot of research before enrolling and went with wall street prep. Here's my take:
1. TTS and wall street prep both run training programs at investment banks. HOWEVER, TTS seemed VERY basic (but cheaper).
2. I also looked at another company called i-banking institute which holds classes but they dont work directly with banks
3. Wall street prep's class was excellent. Intense but very comprehensive. I constantly still reference the materials they provided.

I work for one of the top bulge bracket banks. I am familiar with all available training programs. I have watched these develop as friends of mine have considered one or the other over the years as they have entered the industry. Let me say that the Analyst Exchange is a cheap imitation of Training The Street and I would not recommend anyone wasting their money on it. So that you know, I have nothing to do with Training The Street, I'm not saying go there. Buy the Wall Street Prep Self-Study before you spend a dime with the Analyst Exhcnage, you'll be glad you did.

I stumbled upon your post trying to find out similar first-hand information. I have a strong background in finance, which is why I'm worried TTS wouldn't benefit me as much. However, I'm considering the consulting world- so any additional training can't hurt right? Maybe some more people will find this thread before I make my decision..

Hi there,
Just wanted to share my personal experience. I've recently completed this course and to be honest I found it pretty useful! The CV advice and mock interviews were of use as well. Though you have to work a lot during the time of the programme it is very rewarding and helps you a lot while the jobsearch.

Hi

Joshua, if you see this message, could I also get any information about the 5 week summer analyst program? My email is [email protected] To anyone, are the internship positions paid? Or do we have to pay?

Training the Street pales in comparison to Pillars of Wall Street. Took courses with both entities, and instructors with PWS are actually good teachers. They tailor the curriculum to your level, so you're always learning something new at each session. As for TTS, the instructor failed to answer a number of questions students asked. But take it with a grain of salt, and do your due diligence and see for yourself
