What Our Students Say

At first, I was sceptical. Then I was intrigued. After 200 hours I was amazed. This course has taught me to create, visualize and present clear, flexible and structured financial models. It teaches you critical hard skills that are necessary to efficiently build financial models from scratch. Sincere gratitude to Tim Vipond, FMVA®, Scott Powell and the whole Corporate Finance Institute® (CFI) team for creating this thorough course and challenging final exam

Kobe Wastiels

Hey folks, After 6 months of studying, 19 courses, and over 900 lessons, I have finally completed Corporate Finance Institute® (CFI)’s Financial Modeling & Valuation Analyst Certification Program. I would definitely recommend it to anyone that is looking to get a deeper insight into Valuation, Modeling, and Corporate Finance area in general. Starting with core 3 statement and DCF models and ending up with advanced M&A and LBO. In between you can brush up your Excel with Dashboards & Data Visualization and Excel Crash courses, and for those who think they know everything about PowerPoint I would strongly suggest to test it with PowerPoint & Pitchbooks course. Huge thanks to Tim Vipond, FMVA® and all the CFI™ team for these high-quality educational materials and I am looking forward to your new Machine Learning and Capital Markets programs.

Ihor Kukhar

I'm very grateful to finally earn my FMVA certification, after several months finishing up every module one-by-one.. Special thanks to Tim Vipond, FMVA®, Scott Powell, Jorge Marques, FMVA®, Lonny Coulombe, Antoine Bishara and all CFI team for such a great program. Keep up the good work, guys! I was wondering this program had been live when I started my career, as it would be very helpful not only for junior analysts/bankers as a guideline for their finance career path, but also for seasoned professionals/bankers as an enrichment and/or a refresher.

Muhammad Heryanto Jafar

Today marks a very important milestone in my educational journey. I have been looking for a way to get into Finance but hadn't been able to identify a credential that would do the job without interrupting my work schedule. Thank you CFI, and a very special thanks to Tim Vipond; you are an exceptional instructor and I look forward to learning more from you and your team! #cfi #fmva
