I found the Financial Modeling course offered by Edupristine as knowledge enriching. Course content and lectures were good and helped in understanding complex financial models and improved efficiency at work.
EduPrisitine's faculty is awesome. The classroom sessions from industry practioners gave a deep understanding of the topics. As a PMO Lead, I expected more on project finance with advanced excel tricks but I got a lot great stuff to learn apart from it. I thanks Pristine faculty for this. Looking forward for continual relation with Pristine.
I am a rookie with MS Excel. Will it be difficult to learn Financial Modeling? Difference between learning MS Excel and Financial Modeling? What career can I build by learning Financial Modeling?
