Certified Financial Engineer Selected participant voices

The Certified Financial Engineering Program is ideally suited for students who want a complete immersion in the world of financial derivatives during their studies and before starting their career. The three modules helped me to understand the common plain vanilla options as well as futures strategies by studying the creation, pricing and simulation of complex and structured products. The entire knowledge then resulted in a thesis. I particularly liked the fact that I can combine the program with further training of the Deutsche Börse Academy.

“During Certified Financial Engineer training, I learned a lot about numerous investment strategies and developing structured products as well as the products needed for their development. In a seminar, the application of the products as well as their development were practically explained. The training conveys the knowledge in a way that is understandable for anyone and thus, a practical application does not pose a problem any more. I can absolutely recommend the training to anyone wishing to work in the fields of investment management or engineering. Again many thanks for the great support during the training and for the knowledge I was able to acquire in its course.”

“The Certified Financial Engineer training conveys a great overview of the subject field of financial engineering. The three-stage structure allows the participant to intensely engage with derivative instruments and to thus build solid knowhow or to deepen existing knowledge. Especially elaborating the Certified Financial Engineer thesis and the involved intense dealing with the subject field I chose myself represented a huge added value to me. In total, the Certified Financial Engineer is an awesome training and advanced training option and an excellent opportunity to emphasise one's competence in the area of financial engineering.“

"The Certified Financial Engineer Program helped me a lot in connecting the dots between the different fields of Financial Engineering. I became familiar not only with plain vanilla instruments but also with a huge variety of exotic instruments which are essential for understanding, creating, and valuing structured products. The strong focus on practice-oriented issues is more than useful for those who are interested in Financial Engineering and for those who want to widen their big picture of the financial industry. I highly recommend the Certified Financial Engineer Program to everyone who aims to strengthen his/her knowledge and applicable know-how and who wants to proof his/her competences in the more and more complex field of financial derivatives."

“The Certified Financial Engineer programme conveys profound and practically-oriented expert knowledge when it comes to evaluating and applying derivatives. Especially in the complex world of derivatives, it is of the utmost importance to be perfectly familiar with pricing and to be able to manage it. Being a Certified Financial Engineer does not only mean to be an expert, but is also and above all synonymous with an ethically responsible way of handling derivatives.”

“The Certified Financial Engineer training is an optimal way of transferring the theoretical prior knowledge acquired during one's studies to applied practice. As a Certified Financial Engineer, one can visibly prove to have internalised derivative instruments and the chances and risks that come with them. Furthermore, the training adapts individually to the existing knowledge level of each participant. By taking a facultative seminar, the participant is also able to build up expert knowledge in a short period of time.“

“The Certified Financial Engineer programme provides the interested audience with a broad overview of all aspects of financial engineering. Thanks to the flexible structure of the Certified Financial Engineer programme, it is an ideal in-service training that can be individually adapted to one's own agenda. Besides, the Certified Financial Engineer programme is the first ever qualification opportunity to prove one's authority in the area of derivatives.”
