„The methodological approach makes the Certified Financial Modeler program very valuable - compared to other certifications, which partly focus only on the theoretical content. The structured book as well as the well-structured instructional material illustrate the complex topic in an impressive manner. Furthermore, I appreciated the Excel / VBA based tools which I could download in the “Center for Financial Modeling.”

Daniel Altmann, Certified Financial Modeler, EY

This way, a high-quality consulting for the client is guaranteed.”
