It was a great high-quality learning experience in terms of Instructor’s knowledge deliverability, course content of the program, notes, quality of video lectures and especially the support staff for handling questions & queries right on time. I have completed the program – it more than met my expectations and I feel I have really benefited from it. It was one of the best decisions that I made in my life. CFI financial Analyst Program bridges the gap between the theoretical & practical side of the Finance Profession Domain. I highly recommend with my full conviction & sincerity CFI to everyone who wants to start a career in “Corporate Finance” a wall street must.

CFI Financial Modeling Training Student Review
Brandon J. Casamassima
Investment Analyst
“Big thank you to Tim Vipond for this incredible financial modeling course. After much hard work, I now possess valuable financial modeling capabilities such as building discounted cash flow models, building dynamically linked 3-statement models, and building multi-year forecasts to project income statements, cash flows, and balance sheets into the future. In addition, I can draw upon multiple methods of financial and valuation analysis (including ratio analysis, scenario analysis, sensitivity analysis, accretion/dilution analysis, comparable company analysis, precedent transactions, and discounted cash flow analysis) in order to assess the risks and rewards of investment opportunities.”
Corporate Finance Institute Online Finance Courses Review - Eric Nwanu
Eric Nwanu
Corporate Banking Trainee
“The FMVA financial analyst certification is a great addition to my theoretical and practical financial experience. It has enabled me to become a specialist in summarizing complex finance topics and turning them into simple presentations, dashboards and valuations (as compared to theoretical guru’s who know a lot but don’t always seem to be able to deliver said tangible outcomes). You guys are doing a terrific job on the certification and I’ve already recommended it to others in a similar situation. Keep up the good work!”
