This section has testimonials from current students and alumni.

  • The online example Excel documents allowed me to walk through the correct methodology for the the wide range of materials taught. I then used these on my own time to attempt the theories on my own and validate that I had, indeed, learned them. I am hoping to show interviewers that I have the necessary foundational skills within excel to be taught their firm specific methods and begin a career with them.”
