What our customers say:
“I participated in Cambridge Finance’s two-day, real estate development modelling course and benefited immensely from:
- An extremely well-structured course;
- An interactive class, taught at pace;
- A highly knowledgeable and engaging instructor; and
- Excellent course material.
Ultimately, I came away from the course more confident in my modeling and equipped with the tools (handy excel shortcuts included) to build a robust but organized development model.
I highly recommend the Cambridge Finance team and for any entry level or intermediate employees looking to refine their skills.”
