Very crisp, precise, to the point and detailed program. In fact it felt as if I am not learning but real time experience gaining. Looking forward for some advance tutorials clubbed with budgeting section. Hats off….!!!!

  3. I feel there can be more quiz questions to make the course more interactive and video quality can be better too. Rest is great

  4. Prerna Daga says:

    Had previously taken in class course and this one is much better and comprehensive. Love the sections and sub sections which allows you to review topics by relevance/ requirements. Will recommend it for sure.

  5. Best finance course that I have subscribed to. Not sure even a classroom program would have given me more insights in tools, techniques and skills required for financial modeling.

  6. Purav Shah says:

    itโ€™s very nice and precise, easy-to-understand. The frequent explanation of concepts makes it easy-to-grasp for a person even with elementary Excel skills. I think I can use the templates for my own bank and loan proposal submissions. Look forward to more programs from AFT

  7. Palak Sheth says:

    I was looking for such a financial modeling program from very long, complex financial models made easy, this program helped me to learn the core methods of Financial forecasting.

  8. I admit your financial modeling program picks up where CFA program leaves off. While CFA programs focus on theory and strategy, your Financial Modeling program focuses on tactics and how-to. I highly recommend to Entry Level Buy/Sell Side Analyst Your Financial Modeling Program.

  9. sr c says:

    The learning experience of having videos synchronized with step-by-step manuals is preferable even to a live class. Your Financial Modeling Program have the most complete offering. The Excel Add-In alone is worth the price.

  10. It has been very useful course, to understand even some basics of finance and really useful excel keyboard shortcuts and tools, besides the core skill of how to create a financial model of a business from scratch .

  11. Financial Modelling in totality is a difficult concept to be taught online. However, the Tutor Mr. Zawar has been bang on point with specific conceptual references. The best part about these robust lectures is that it has been supported with a Financial Case which makes you work along with the tutor on MS-Excel. Reference models and additional study materials reduces the risk of being lost while practicing. Strongly suggest budding finance professionals to take up this course to understand & practically relate concepts of finance while analysing business. Looking forward for similar kind of intense financial course. Best of Luck!!!!

  12. yash jain says:

    This course by AFT is well drafted to take someone with no understanding of Financial Modelling to essential advanced concepts.

  13. Very well executed program in lucid language and user friendly manner! The Advanced Excel tips, Excel Functions, Shortcuts and Finance concept screen tips really come handy. The discussion forum is also a good way to solving doubts giving it a feel of real time environment. The forum also seems to be a good tool for networking with other participants. Really a value-for-money program! Highly recommended for the aspirants who want to learn the Financial Modeling thoroughly. Looking forward to modeling programs that would cover advanced concepts like Valuation and M&A modeling in a simplistic way.

  14. Yash Gujar says:

    I came across this program as a simple and comprehensive approach to financial modeling. I congratulate Ashutosh, who has combined his academic and professional knowledge to create this unique program. It is useful not only to beginners but also experienced professionals to sharpen their modeling skills.

  16. Being a non-finance Professional myself.. I didn’t have any problem taking this course from the convenience of my home..& understanding the course contents was never so easy. Plus the keyboard shortcuts appearing time-to-time in the videos made it easy to memorize.

  17. Excellent presentation with clear logic behind the accounting principles and interlink between the three financial statements. Very easy to follow!! Great work!!

  18. Detailed explanation, easy to follow,Excel short cuts highlighted at required places is very nice.

  19. I signed up for this program as a newbie to the Banking and Finance industry. The program videos are helping me in getting faster with Excel and building projections overall. I can now recall some of the keyboard shortcuts which keep popping from top in all videos. Also the side-boxes which keep on educating about the best practices or concepts. Though, I look forward to also the same way to learn the basic concepts in MS Excel too, like Data Validation, Conditional Formatting, IF function in detail etc. Also, more videos on Concepts in Finance will take the program to a whole new level. I will be able to upgrade my rating if the program can provide this.

  20. Being a CA student i am keen to make a career in Finance / Investment Banking, I always wondered what Financial Modeling is. This program definitely goes a long way to improve my knowledge and makes me more confident to face interviews. The concepts explained with screen-writing (Financial Modeling for an operating company vs. that for a new project, Circularity in Excel, Functions used in Financial Modeling) are particularly good! Pop-ups which keep reminding me about keyboard shortcuts are a great way to improve speed in Excel. Various versions of the model, which allow a reconciliation at every stage is also a great idea!

  21. Diben patade says:

    I had pretty elementary level of knowledge in finance and in MS-Excel too. So i knew that it would be a great challenge to learn financial modeling. But after completing this program, i would say it is best suited for people like me. I am very happy that i chose this program over others because it gives a holistic learning experience in the form of interactive features of the videos like Excel Shortcut Prompters, Guidances on Best Practices & Finance Concepts, Supplementary Materials, etc. Further, I could also test my learning via the Quiz at the end of varied sections. A complete Value-for-Money package!!!! I would highly recommend this program for all those who want to learn financial modeling.

  22. The best thing about this program is its unique features in form of Prompters for Keyboard Shortcuts, Important concepts in Finance as well as Modeling Best Practices, which lead to a seamless learning experience. Great Program.

  23. Could not believe that an online course can be so interactive and gripping. One of the best online courses I have seen.

  24. Wonderful course available at a very attractive price.

  25. Sahil Metha says:

    Superb video course. Loved the excel shortcuts prompts which helped me work on the model simultaneously along with the video course. Even the quiz helped me test my learning at almost every section.

  26. Its really a good program, this financial modeling program covers every single different area, gave me an edge in getting job and excelling in job. Well equipped with Financial Modeling made me a part of a coveted circle of finance professionals.

  27. Kushal tanna says:

    It is one of the most valuable online finance course. I went through many options of such courses before buying, but the previews and coverage of this course is unmatched and definitely found the course worth much more than the price I paid. Superb Online Course!!!

  28. I havent come across a better online course than this one ever before in my life. Superb learning experience.

  29. The balanced and systematic approach of the trainer is the highlight of the program. The concepts of finance as well as the prominent features of MS Excel have been given due weightage in the course. So, even a non-finance person like me was able to grab the essence of the lectures very easily My only suggestion is to add some supplementary material on the core concepts of accounting in the beginning, which will be of great use to those from the non-finance & accounting background. I will be looking forward to more courses from Academy of Financial Training

  30. As a finance enthusiast i always wanted to learn modelling but at the same time i dreaded it cos the more i saw models the more scared i got with the complexity of formulas etc. This training explains how simple it is to make a model if you have the BIG Picture in your mind and do one thing at a time and keep checking for inconsistencies. Further the video is very articulate and explains everything so clearly that you feel you are in a classroom having a face to face interaction. Kudos to the team and thank you for providing this. I feel confident about excel and modelling now. Cant wait to build my own model from SCRATCH!

  31. Disha Naik says:

    This one is the best financial modeling program that I have ever taken. Really appreciated and enjoyed it.

  32. With this course, i am feeling to be better prepared to handle real business situations as well as make robust Financial models when one joins the corporate world. I would rate it as a must under go training program for Finance Major students, and a great learning for other management stream students.

  35. AFT has crafted a great course which is very thorough but yet lucid in its step by step approach. Anyone starting off in the field of financial modelling will find this course very valuable. A a constructive note, I urge the periodic tests to be a bit more challenging and concept testing.
