How can Analyst Forum help your career?

We recommend our students use Analyst Forum as a place to ask questions, make connections, and prepare for interviews. While we offer a lot of interview guides, it’s helpful to hear about other people’s experiences, which they often share on the forum.

The forum is a great place to brush up on technical skills.  While our financial modeling courses and business valuation classes give you step-by-step instruction, it’s helpful to get different perspectives from other people.

Analyst Forum can also be useful for bouncing investment ideas off other people.  If you want to be able to pitch an idea, for work, an interview, or university, it’s great to get some feedback from real investment professionals.

Finally, asking questions and learning from others can be a great to help you become a world-class Financial Analyst.
