      What I would highlight: I found all the courses provided by Frankfurt School of Finance & Management extremely useful for the new line of development work that I had just got into. I moved from private sector financial services (insurance) to International development (UNCDF) in the area of Inclusive finance and hence wanted a basic orientation in microfinance. The course I took was just right for that and provided me with the appropriate level of knowledge required for a good understanding of microfinance. The online resources including audio/video, teaching material, notes, links to CGAP papers were all very useful not only from the point of view of the course but as a ready reckoner for some of my work related issues as well. The elective course on Mobile banking that I had taken was very much in line with the work that I am currently doing in the Solomon Islands. I would most certainly confirm that the CEMF course is right for any practicing microfinance Manager as well as those in the development area. The support from the FS team is also appreciable, given that they were there to provide guidance at every step. Otherwise for a working professional, it becomes difficult to manage time. My compliments to FS and the team!
