For me, Financial Modeling means to work on complex tasks in an abstract and structured way. In practice, this allows demanding financial topics in the field of business analysis and evaluation to be solved and made understandable for others. The Certified Financial Modeler offers a comprehensive toolbox for this purpose. It prepares for all requirements in the field of corporate finance through a targeted and well thought-out learning concept.

"As a scholarship holder of the German Institute of Corporate Finance (GICF) I participated in the training to become a Certified Financial Modeler. Due tot he fact that the Excel models were created from scratch, I was able to develop a very good feeling how the financial figures are connected. I found the results-identical modelling of the DCF procedures particularly exciting. I was able to expand existing financial modelling skills and acquire new knowledge. The GICF team also supported me at all times."

"The Certified Financial Modeler offers a very well-structured program with a balance of theoretical knowledge and practical relevance. Preparing for the certificate, I discovered that the acquired knowledge provides an added value to my daily work as a consultant. In addition to technical modelling know-how the Corporate Finance module and especially the valuation part was of great interest".
Kevin Prinz, Certified Financial Modeler, Roland Berger
"The Certified Financial Modeler program is very well structured. The various steps are logically ordered and I was able to climb-up the ladder of Financial Modeling. Modeling all the cases by myself helped me very much to understand the big picture. I have chosen the Certified Financial Modeler program because my theoretical University based knowledge didn’t open that magic window of opportunity. Ever since Financial modeling became a passion. This passion helps me in my day-to-day business tremendously."
Christoph Weyer, Certified Financial Modeler
Consultant, Partake Consulting
"The Certified Financial Modeler provides in-depth financial modeling and Excel know-how. Especially in SMEs this know-how is often not really present. Financial models - regardless of their size – are very often not transparent and difficult to understand for third parties. This complicates not only the daily work but also project-related transaction tasks. The Certified Financial Modeler analyses the principles of financial modeling in addition to modeling specific financial topics.
The best practice modeling issues are core for any excel-based model - whether it is about creating a simple cost calculation or a rather complex integrated financial planning tool."
Katharina Hirning, Certified Financial Modeler, Consultant, Helbling Business Advisors, Munich
“Well-founded financial modeling skills are particularly important for controlling. The Certified Financial Modeler provides the theoretical basis as well as their practical transfer.”

Felix Nunninger, Certified Financial Modeler, Treasury, BMW Group
For me as a management consultant in the field of renewable energies, financial modelling is an essential part of every project, business plan and financing proposal. The Certified Financial Modeler programme combines theory and practice in a very practical way and teaches important Excel skills to check, model and graphically prepare complex financial models. The Certified Financial Modeler is thus able to create complex integrated financial models and carry out company valuations - and these are of course also necessary in the renewable energy sector."

At the same time, the Certified Financial Modeler bridges the gap between theory and practice and offers the tools to transform financial problems into models. A recommendable education for every finance professional".
