  • “Better than my MBA!”
  • “My first year of B School included a two day workshop where TTS came to campus and worked us through this entire course in person. The conceptual and technical information within this coursepack is great. I actually used them my first week of my MBA internship when valuing an acquisition target and presenting my valuation, along with a comps analysis, to senior management.”
