I took Recalc’s Modeling Bootcamp to help me prepare for my private equity interviews. I finished the classes feeling more capable and confident to go through the process and join a deal team.
I studied for IB and PE interviews on my own, and through that process increased my understanding of accounting and modeling, but I still felt like there were gaps in my knowledge. Taking Recalc courses bridged those gaps and prepared me for my upcoming interviews. Recalc courses were interactive and easy to digest and follow. Instructors would always stay after class to answer any questions I had and ensure that the material covered was understood.
Recalc training is an innovative and practical way to acquire the skills needed for success in a PE environment.
