Reseñas de este curso

Bikoun Josué
Lo mejor: The training materials of Frankfurt School are of very high top quality. At the end of a course, you're an expert. After my first course in risk management, I got a far better position in another company through a selection between more than 300 candidates. My goal in doing islamic microfinance course was to learn a way of practising development finance differently. I am thouroughly satisfied because we receive many practical cases, deep explanations and I feel at ease in designing innovative financial products for the SME'S.
A mejorar: the names in Arabic language were quite difficult for me to remember.
