I took Financial Modelling course during Jan to April of 2015. The course was very informative and the instructors taught everything from scratch and explained many concepts clearly, the excel modules were highly useful during my professional career. The course was designed in such a way that, it helped me during my college placements and thereby leading to my successful placement in S&P Capital IQ. I owe this to the course and my trainers. I made many good friends during the programme and remain in touch with them till date. Kudos to you and keep doing this great job. All the best.
