Why should I take CFI courses over Khan Academy?

In a nut shell, our courses have the longest track record of training corporate finance professionals.  Our instructors started designing courses over 20 years ago to train new hires at global banks in London, New York, Hong Kong, Toronto and other major financial centers.  Our clients include JP Morgan, Credit Suisse, TD Bank, and many more.

We pride ourselves on developing engaging, easy to follow content.  We believe our video courses have the best combination or media design, graphics illustrations, and beautiful Excel template compared to our competition.

We offer several introductory courses for free, and always issue certificates.
