Lindsay Petrovic, MBA courses reviews

The best of both worlds

CFI courses provided the best of both worlds – the classes were detailed and had a similar level of content to my MBA courses, but were presented in a simple and easy to understand manner. Best of all, excel template models come with each class, setting you up to leverage this knowledge in the workplace.

Olga Filatova, Financial and Excel Modelling Skills reviews

Just awesome!

I never leave feedback, but in this case I found your course just awesome! For a long time I have struggled to find a course with the combination of high professional Financial and Excel modelling skills. Due to your practical background in finance, the model is in all aspects very highly rated. I believe it’s worth much more than I paid for it and I feel very lucky to have taken your amazing courses.

Simply perfect

Extremely clear, step-by-step guided course on how to build a balance sheet and cash flow statement forecast model using Excel. All the rest was simply perfect.

I am grateful to CFI

I am grateful to CFI for explaining such a complex concepts in an extremely lucid manner.  What I had learned in this course would have taken me months on my own.

CFI Review

It helped me land a job

CFI came to me at a time when I really needed it. These courses helped me immensely by improving my Excel modelling techniques and corporate finance concepts. It gave me enough knowledge to crack a super competitive interview as a business analyst in a billion-dollar shipping company. A lot of the financial modeling skills I learned from the courses are going to be with me forever as I progress through my career.

An essential resource to help be prepared

After my undergraduate degree in economics, I found it hard to bridge the gap between academia and the skills required in banking. CFI was an excellent resource in developing marketable skills in the industry and helped me land my first job. I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to prepare themselves for a job in the financial industry.
