After more than 15 years in the renewable energy industry and given the opportunity to change career internally at my workplace, I needed a trustworthy training institution where I could capitalize my investment, speed-up my professional transition and level-up with the rest of colleagues involved in the Bank’s private sector department. In addition to a carefully curated content that can be used during the course and once your return to your daily activities, my interaction with the Instructor was fluid and helped me understand a variety of matters that streamlined my link with the corporate world.

I attended the NYIF Corporate Finance and Valuation Methods Professional Certificate program course. This course is a cut above the rest and I was so impressed with the structure and content of the course material that I was confident in pursuing another course with NYIF. I have also recommended this course to other persons in my field who have shared similar feedback. I found the course to be in-depth, covering topics that were both relevant to the objectives of the course and that were applicable to my job. The use of case studies further strengthened the concepts and ideas taught. The instructor was knowledgeable on the topic and exuded confidence in delivering the material. Questions were answered sufficiently and recommendations were made for further readings. The knowledge garnered from this experience has gone a far way in helping me to add further value to my organization.
