Testimonial


The Financial Due Diligence course is amazing!

It is an excellent resource for individuals to get a deeper understanding of financial analysis and due diligence to prepare them for a career within finance or simply expand their knowledge.

A few months ago, I didn't have a clue of how to conduct thorough due diligence and how to complete financial analysis the CORRECT way. Gathering monthly/yearly revenue figures and putting them into a chart without really understanding the fluctuations in detail was something I used to do and call it a day.

This beginner-friendly course dove into everything you need to know to help you understand how a business operates financially and how to examine key metrics. From a top-down approach to breaking down P&L statements, COGS, expenses, and other line items, I am far more comfortable/quicker at conducting due diligence and financial analysis.

Furthermore, this course helped me land an internship at a boutique Investment Bank, and my first week of training consisted of many of the analyses and due diligence taught in this course! Also, speaking about financial due diligence in detail during interviews is also extremely helpful knowing I've had the practice and knowledge from this course.

Overall, I highly recommend this course to any individual looking to learn more or for a student seeking to break into their dream job. The price is worth the valuable content and resources to put you in a position to be well equipped in financial due diligence. Incredible work creating the course, Pierre and I can't thank you enough!
