The course was informative highlighting key areas that are pertinent to the global operate culture ethical scenarios that impact the organization. The case scenarios were very practical in the nature that you have to analyze different scenarios from companies that have been impacted negatively by lack of proper ethical behavior and poor corporate governance structures in their operations. Ethical and Professional Standards is a major part of the CFI Program curriculum at all three levels, so it is very important to learn this material well. CFI Institute places a high value on ethics, and even uses scores on this section to determine if someone passes or fails when their overall exam result is right at the edge of the Minimum Passing Score.
