“The instructors are willing to help trainees on an individual level. Because of their backgrounds in investment banking, private equity and corporate development, they were able to explain why all the steps in the FMC™ Program are relevant for careers in finance.”

Our Lead Trainers

The Adventis™ team consists of professionals with experience in investment banking, consulting, private equity and asset management. One of the core beliefs of our team is that trainers should be “plucked” from the corporate world a few days out of the year, rather than taken out of the workforce to train full time. We believe that our trainers are able to better serve professionals and undergraduate students by continuing to use our financial modeling skills in the marketplace, rather than becoming full-time trainers.
