As a former analyst in Merrill Lynch’s investment banking group, David Lewicki founded Adventis™ in 2008. Adventis developed into a successful financial modeling consulting firm that performed hundreds of projects for over 70 clients, including start-up ventures, boutique investment banks and private equity firms, middle-market companies and Fortune 500 corporations. Along the way, Adventis developed its own internal financial modeling training methods.
While David and his team had much success supporting clients, the team further identified a need in the marketplace to help undergraduate students and finance professionals acquire tangible, hands-in financial modeling skills. In 2013, FMC® Program was developed to help undergraduate students and finance professionals close the gap between conceptual theories and practical skills.
Today, Adventis teaches boot camps on campuses nationwide, equipping students with the practical skills they need to differentiate themselves. The FMC® Program has become the premier financial modeling certification in the financial industry and helps employers enhance the productivity of their teams and identify elite financial talent. Using a superior approach to teaching that combines in-person, learn-by-doing instruction and self-paced learning, our boot camps teach trainees to build three-statement financial models and other analyses completely from scratch.
