Here's What People Are Saying About DPU:

"DPU was a great experience. The combination of classroom-style learning supplemented with rigorous training exercises really helped me establish a solid foundation prior to beginning the analyst role. The program was built significantly upon prior accounting and finance knowledge from college while also adding in real-world examples of case studies and previous Duff & Phelps engagements. One of the best parts was getting to know colleagues from my business line working in different parts of the world."

"There is a good balance between relaxed and serious in the office. Everyone gets along, and there is an open line of communication between analysts and managers."

"DPU is a great way to get exposure to the knowledge and resources you need in the office. It seems like an overwhelming amount of information at first, but I’m already remembering and using parts of what I learned at DPU after only two weeks in the office. It’s a great review, and helps get you comfortable before beginning client work. Plus, it’s a lot of fun, and there are plenty of networking and socializing opportunities with people from around the U.S. and even from around the world."

"In my first year, I’ve already worked on several billion-dollar transactions for large clients in the tech industry. Coming right out of school, this has been a great experience for me."

"I am very pleased with the career advisement program at Duff & Phelps. I met with my career advisor early on, working together to figure out goals that would be beneficial to my career as well as to the firm, and I continuously receive feedback on my progress. This is not something that you see at all companies."

"I have enjoyed the opportunity to work in several different project areas with many different people, including Dispute Consulting, Valuation Advisory Services and Intellectual Property. I feel that I am gaining exposure to different industries and practices."
