Why the FMC® Program?

⋅⋅⋅⋅⋅⋅⋅⋅⋅⋅⋅

With over 8,000 enrollments, only 15% of our applicants receive a certification. We only award our certifications to those who exhibit the skills and concepts taught in the FMC® Program by passing our rigorous and systematic financial modeling exams — not simply watching the program’s videos or passing a multiple choice exam.

Learning from textbooks and passively watching videos is great, but building out a financial model 10 to 20 times and getting certified provides a foundation aspiring finance professionals can’t get any other way. Our videos, supporting documents, and certification process ensure a differentiated skill set and understanding of key concepts upon certification.
