About Corporate Finance Institute® (CFI)

CFI and the FMVA® Program

Corporate Finance Institute® (CFI) is a leading global provider of online financial modeling and valuation courses. In 2018, CFI’s programs and certifications were delivered to 103,033 individuals at top universities, investment banks, accounting firms, and operating companies around the world.

Our mission is to help anyone become a world-class financial analyst.

The modern financial analyst requires a well-rounded skill set that takes time to acquire. Some of the skills are developed in university, some are developed on the job, and some of the skills come from experience and developing a strong business intuition. At CFI, we combine all three skill sets — theory, application, and intuition — into a condensed, self-paced program that can be taken anytime, anywhere.
