Solution

Complete program redesign to a conference style approach:

  • Core Curriculum followed by Track specific Electives: Participants learned together in a core curriculum before being able to choose elective courses specific to their role.
  • Role-specific capstone project: WSP developed several capstone projects to replicate what the participant’s role once they are on the desk.
  • Online platform design: Wall Street Prep designed an online platform to facilitate the conference style approach, allowing participants to select courses, manage all virtual classroom links and files, and present results and scores to the L&D teams.
