"The Certified Financial Engineer program offered by the European Institute of Quantitative Finance (EIQF), has been in my case quite useful, since it is well-structured and with the most recent developments in the subject. It is largely among the best in the world and it represents an excellent opportunity for theoretical and practical improvement for all its participants"

The Certified Financial Engineer emphasizes the importance of knowledge within the financial world. The worldwide regulatory body cannot replace continuous education. It is the depth of the Certified Financial Engineer program that portrays a new picture to participants and sets a whole new standard for the financial community.

The Certified Financial Engineer program is an excellent way to improve your knowledge of derivative financial instruments. The partly complex financial mathematical backgrounds are presented very clearly. I would particularly like to emphasize the first-class support provided by the professors. You quickly notice that a lot of effort and heart and soul has gone into the program.

The Certified Financial Engineer program imparts comprehensive knowledge in the field of derivatives and thus contributes significantly to financial education in Germany. The accompanying teaching material guides students through the complex financial-mathematical material in an understandable and clear manner, so that they can enjoy solving problems. The program is particularly recommended for young professionals, as it can be completed on a part-time basis due to its flexible structure. The knowledge gained can thus not only flow directly into everyday professional life, but also into private wealth accumulation.

The content of the Certified Financial Engineer far exceeded my expectations. The practical approach to teaching, which focuses on the relevant topics in the derivatives area, has provided me with a great deal of added value. In the many books and other available media, the concrete application of relevant models is often presented in different ways. With the Certified Financial Engineer, I have now received concrete guidance for the central topics in the area of derivatives.

"The Certified Financial Engineer program has an in-depth knowledge of complex derivatives, risk management and traditional & non-traditional ways of valuing companies. The certification provides an opportunity to practice and understand advanced financial and statistical models coupled with a practical approach to effectively use them. By completing the Certified Financial Engineer program, I have observed that my skill set acquired via my academic and work experience in Corporate/Commercial & Investment Banking has improved and strengthened significantly. Going forward, I believe this program will facilitate me to further progress in my career. In my opinion, this is a well-structured program with extensive relevant content that will help starters and seasoned professionals in the field of investment, derivatives, and financial engineering."

Sarosh Hyder, Certified Financial Engineer, HfWU

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 cooperation between EIQF, Eurex and Deutsche Börse AG provides the title Certified Financial Engineer with an excellent visibility and is, together with practical experience, an appreciated door opener for one's personal career path.”

“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.“
