The course was great and helped me to understand the basics of corporate finance. I expected some detailed example of the valuation methods. But overall, the course was a good one!

Very informative! Covered many key points. I would like to be able to print the slides to make notes, and had some natural pauses in the presentation in order to do so.

Great summary and introduction

by Laura Piccinato
Very interesting course to sum up basic corporate finance concepts. Divided in ~5 minutes-long sub-sessions which are pretty useful in case of frequent interruption. Extremely clear speaker. Really appreciated the final career paths session.

Excellent Training

Very good course, it was what I have been looking for!

by lizzy jonazi
To know more about corporate finance, especially in growing businesses in Africa, you need knowledge on growth from SMES to competitive firms, knowing how to raise capital, debt, shares etc. I recommend CFI courses as a career builder, and I’m a diploma holder of accounting and want to advance myself in investment and wealth management. I most certainly appreciate your certificate, I think it’s clearly explained I have done financial operations in CIMA.

Good Job
