Financial modelling expert in M&A

The modex m&a ® is an online test that covers private equity concepts and it allows you to demonstrate your skills as if you were in an interview

Financial modelling is an essential skill for those working on investment projects or advisory roles in areas such as venture capital, M&A, real estate, project finance or private equity.

It is increasingly common for the boutiques and investment banks in this sector to require job applicants to have proficiency in financial modelling as part of their skill-set

The modex® m&a exams are designed and marked entirely by professionals currently working in M&A, through a rigorous scoring system to ensure that all the exams are fair and accurate.

This pack includes three tests and the comparison of your results against our database: 

  • Two mock-up tests with the solution to help you prepare for an investment banking interview.
  • One modex® m&a test. The real one, the one that separates you from the crowd  (live and monitored). 
  • By taking this benchmark exam, you could be recognized by prestigious financial institutions across the globe and you move to the top of the list in the hiring pipeline
