Finance Professionals Certification Program

CEFIS Finance Professionals Certification Program aims to provide a complimentary training for graduate students via seminars throughout the semester by several experts and professionals in different areas of finance. Participants of the program will both have the chance to meet, listen and talk to those professionals and work with them during the semester on a selected project. Those projects will be submitted to CEFIS at the end of the semester, presented by a conference to finance sector professionals and turned to a printed material for the use of the sector with contributor students and mentors’ name on it. We believe this will contribute the program participants’ careers enormously while creating visionary finance professionals.

Seminars will be open to everyone and both students from all universities and finance sector workers can attend free of charge.
