"The one and half year course on Financial Engineering that I attended at IIQF is one of the best courses available in the Indian market. Much more rigorous than CQF and more Quant Finance orientated than a CFA. It has a wonderful faculty most of whom are former PhDs from Stanford or Professors in Indian Statistical Institute (ISI). The course offers various insights and allows multiple programming languages. It allows Open book Testing culture which allows students to focus on applying the theory to very real problems. This course overall has provided me with a solid mathematical foundation, enabled me to understand how the theory translates to practical problems and finally to get a great offer in a equity quant research team."

"Thanks Mr. Nitish for giving me the opportunity to attend the second batch this very much appreciated. Regarding course evaluation without doubt it was a very fruitful experience for me and Mr. Ravi was very kind and helpful for all the participants. We were very lucky to be taught by Mr. Ravi I think he is well qualified and experience not just in delving the excel and corporate finance but his ability to convey his knowledge and experience to the participants. If I were to give him a score for sure it will be excellent. Once again I would like to thank Mr. Ravi and Mr. Nitish and please extend my thanks to IIQF and I hope to attend more courses in the coming future. Best regards."

I had attended the program in Certificate Program in Advanced Financial Modelling using MS Excel and VBA Programming by Indian Institute of Quantitative Finance. I would highly recommend it not only for its content, which is very relevant for professionals in finance, risk and statistics, but also for the sincerity and passion with which Mr. Abhijit Biswas taught us. Can u think of a course where the students have to remind the professor for a break ! His teaching style is very lucid and the build up to the lectures excellent. Ditto for the other professors. I have gained immensely from the program and like to thank IIQF for the same. I wish them success in all their future programs.

Please pass on my thanks to Abhijt Sir.

Glad to inform you that I have cleared FRM Part II examination held in May 2013, with better quartiles as compared to Part I. Indeed IIQF has been of great help in the preparation of Part II exam. Without its help it would have really been difficult to cover such a vast syllabus in such a short time, which got further complicated by delay in publication of study resources. I would, through you like to thank each and every lecturer of IIQF who have shared, not only their knowledge, but also their practical experience, thereby adding value to the study. Also thanking you all who are tirelessly working behind the scenes. The timelines demanded lectures to be structured such that it was both hectic as well as demanding for you as well as us, the participants. However I enjoyed those 3 months as it has added a lot of value in terms of knowledge through interaction with your team of lecturers who are stalwarts in their own fields.

I would like to express my appreciation for VBA programming for Finance conducted by IIQF. The content of this course is industry relevant and suitable for aspirants who want to learn programming for developing applications related to their work in finance. Even though I didn't have any prior knowledge of programming; I could understand it because of their excellent teaching pedagogy and expert faculty. The faculty was very considerate & enthusiastic in solving queries and made sure that we understand the concept before moving on to the next topic. I would highly recommend the Programme to candidates who wants to learn and enhance their understanding of VBA or build up the knowledge to apply VBA techniques in areas like Fixed Income, Derivatives, Risk Management etc.

I am Amit Shah from the FRM L2 batch. And I am happy to announce that I have cleared the Nov 2012 FRM Level II exam. This was my second attempt for Level II as for my 1st attempt I had done classes elsewhere and I couldn't clear. Your classes has amazingly helped me improve my caliber. The faculties were really nice and the mock test were good enough to test my knowledge and make me realize my weaknesses.

Thanking you, Best regards.

I was an IIQF student for FRM Level 1 exam (Nov'12) and now I am planning to appear for Level 2 in November 2013. I am based in Dubai now and trust me, without IIQF I feel handicapped. I bought a video series of Bionic Turtle but the guy is just busy reading slides. No proper explanation, no examples. I really need your advice on how to prepare for Level 2. Is there any online classroom training kind of a facility or a Video series that IIQF offers?

One good decision I took was to join IIQF for FRM 2009 training. Certainly the guidance I received from IIQF was just superb. The faculty team was very knowledgeable and also very very helpful, if you have any doubts you can call them up or go and meet them in person or send an email they are always available. For any exam individual effort matters a lot but if you have a guidance like that from IIQF it certainly helps a lot.

Thank you

IIQF is one of the best training institutes in India for clearing FRM exam. Last year, I attended all the classes at IIQF and just followed IIQF materials & GARP Handbook for 2008 exam, and cleared the exam. Relevent experts from the corporate world take the classes, and not only follow the required topics, but also extend it with real world scenarios. I recommend IIQF for all FRM aspirants from India.

Studying at IIQF has helped me in many ways in cracking the most challenging test in Risk Industry i.e. FRM. This intitute has provided me with the educational building blocks needed to succeed in this rewarding industry. The small class size and the personal attention that I received at IIQF from the instructors like Mr. Abhijit & Basesh, made me feel more comfortable and confident in my preparation for FRM. Also, the materials & the course at IIQF is very well-presented and constructed - each module building on the next. Hence, I personally recommend everyone who is preparing for FRM, to join IIQF.
