About this course
- 44 lessons
Coming from a non-traditional background, our Founder, Mike Kimpel, is incredibly passionate about helping newcomers learn about (and excel in!) the world of Finance!
Mike has accumulated a unique range of experiences as a practitioner and teacher across the core areas of top-tier Finance.
In Finance|able's courses, Mike ties these experiences together to help students see each situation from buy-side, sell-side, and operating roles using time-tested methods from over a decade and a half working and teaching on Wall Street.
Mike oversees all curriculum development and is building the only curriculum available that is purpose-built to tie together the common threads across disciplines above to maximize your potential as an analyst.
You will be able to succeed whether you're headed to Investment Banking, Private Equity, Investment Management, Corporate Finance, or M&A.
In Mike's words, "The best sell-side analysts operate like buy-side analysts."
You'll learn to be much more than a 'Monkey' with our training.
The current offer for our Accounting Course is a one-time opportunity to gain access to all existing and future modules of this course for One Year at a massively reduced price.

Disclaimer: All course timelines are tentative and subject to change at the Finance|able's discretion.
Our courses are designed to deliver exactly what you need, based on where you are in your career progression.
Focused + Applicational Content
You're a busy person, with a lot on your plate!
We skip the fluff and zero in on what you really need to know!
As an example, many Excel courses teach you every Excel Function under the sun.
In contrast, our Excel Survival Kit (target release mid-October '21) focuses on what you'll actually use day-to-day as an analyst.
And our Excel course is built around a comprehensive project that actually reflects what you will actually do on the job!
We continue to be baffled by financial analyst programs that boast about 10-20+ hours of content...in a world where attention spans are shrinking by the minute.
It reminds us of the famous Mark Twain Quote:
“I apologize for such a long letter - I didn't have time to write a short one.”
Don't worry, you won't need 20+ hours to learn core topics with our courses!
Highly Visual Approach
Many finance courses look like a copy-paste from a textbook to a slide.
Let's face it, nobody likes learning this way...especially not in 2022.
Our courses are intentionally designed with a highly-visual approach to help make learning easier, more engaging...and call us crazy...but even a little bit fun!
Dynamic (not Static) Mental Frameworks
Most intro-level modeling courses are built around a particular company case.
This sounds like a great idea, but it has two major issues:
- Attempting to learn company-specific details while simultaneously learning model mechanics (often ends with information overload and pure confusion).
- Building your foundational constructs around a single company. But every model build has company-specific nuances.
While we will offer real-company cases, our foundational courses are built around a simplified example to ensure you build a strong conceptual foundation.
We further reinforce your learning with Visual Mental Maps for everything from Valuation to Financial Modeling.
With our courses and mental maps, you will be able to attack any model with confidence instead of getting lost in one-off nuances of individual companies.
In short, you won't get lost in the weeds in our courses!
Embedded Interview Prep
Within each section of our Concepts courses, you'll find a walkthrough of common interview questions tied to the concepts covered.
With this approach, we not only help you build a strong conceptual foundation but also prepare you to nail your interviews.
A True 'Learning Journey'
We know your foundational training is only the beginning.
And we build our courses to provide you with exactly what you need at every stage of your learning journey.
In the end, we're aiming to provide you with everything you need to survive your first 5-10 years on the job.
