What Students are Saying

The program has helped me to understand the cross functional relationships, scope of examinations and design of the compliance program. The professors are very clear on the topic and seasoned with industry experience.

This was by far the best program I have enrolled in since my MBA. Even though the work load is high, this course was extremely enjoyable and I learned so many interesting and useful facts that I am using in my job as Treasurer.

The FMC program has helped me to understand the cross functional relationships, scope of examinations and design of the compliance program. It’s a blend of Finance, law and IT audit which is suitable given the time frame it’s designed for and the material. 

The course content and professors were top-notch. I was impressed with the credentials, knowledge and real-life experiences of the professors. They  didn't just teach theory, they incorporated their experiences and impressions in working in the FMC industry.
