Practical, hands-on instruction that gets you hired in investment banking, private equity, and other competitive fields in finance
Over 60% of Adventis alumni who completed the FMC Level I Certification secured a full-time job in investment banking or private equity. Other Level I alumni have secured jobs across equity research, commercial banking, sales and trading, and other competitive industries.
The FMC® Program is advantageous for undergrads looking to win entry-level positions and develop their financial acumen, attention to detail, and practical financial modeling skills. Due to the wide use of financial modeling, the FMC Program is relevant for a number of fields, including:
Our FMC® Program builds accounting and financing acumen that sets students apart when they enter the competitive job market. The program is designed to benefit individuals of all educational backgrounds and skillsets.
Freshmen and sophomores enroll in the course to differentiate themselves while networking and interviewing for internships. Recruiting cycles are starting earlier each year, and the FMC® Program helps to differentiate you in the process.
Juniors and seniors see Adventis as an important part of their journey into finance professions. Whether you are trying to win an internship or recruiting for full-time roles the FMC® Program can help you secure the positions you are seeking and differentiate you when you start the job.
The FMC® Program teaches users how to build best-of-class, three-statement, fully circular financial models entirely from scratch.
Enrollees are introduced to the FMC Program, get their macros set up, and learn the basics around keystroke efficiency
Enrollees learn how to build up the three financial statements from scratch and link them together
Practice building the three-statement financial model until you can take the exam. Take the FMC Level I exam when you’re ready. If you don’t pass the first time, don’t worry. Enrollment provides you with unlimited exams.
Enrollees learn how to build analysis and supporting schedules around valuation and LBO analyses
Review the principles you’ve learned from the valuation and LBO modules and take the FMC Level II exam when you’re ready.
The FMC® Program consists of two levels of certification. Each level requires enrollees to pass a rigorous and thorough set of requirements that demonstrate strong analytical capabilities and an understanding of key concepts.
The hundreds of individuals Adventis certifies each year are in very good company. Adventis-certified individuals are currently represented at hundreds of firms throughout the country (see below for a sampling of the more notable firms). Earning your certification won’t guarantee an interview, but it will help to move your resume closer to the top of the pile.
Many undergraduate students choose to take the FMC Program while they are 1st- and 2nd-year students in order to properly prepare for the rigorous recruiting cycles for investment banking, private equity, and other competitive fields in finance.
However, we also have many 3rd- and 4th-year students enroll in the program to prepare for internship and full-time recruiting and brush up on their financial modeling skills.
Know that there is no single right time to enroll. Candidates come to us during various stages in their undergraduate careers with the shared goal of preparing for recruiting, building financial modeling skills, and gaining a technical understanding of financial concepts.
