Give your students & members the strongest professional foundations in modeling with accreditations by the FMI.
Why partner with the FMI?
You would like to complement your existing academic program with practical and in-demand financial modeling skills, which will enhance students’ ability to learn your core curriculum.
You are looking to broaden the career opportunities available to your students, members, staff and/or alumni and differentiate them from competition.
You value candidates and employees being assessed in privately-held sessions and/or on bespoke dates (which may be advertised as a perk of your program, helping with the profile of your institution).
You want to provide the FMI’s thought-leadership as a value-add to your students or members, increasing member engagement and inspiring the development of modeling acumen.
Where do you start?
1. Reach out the FMI using the form below or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a call with our team to best understand your needs.
2. We will develop a program specific to your circumstances. The plan will detail all relevant accreditations (AFM, CFM), an approach to working with the FMI, and tailored pricing.
What are typical use cases?
Curriculum differentiation A graduate program wants to equip its students with financial modeling skills prior to their employment term. They work with an FMI Approved Training Partner to add the FMI’s knowledge to their curriculum along with a private exam.
Access to financial modeling content A chapter of a professional society wants to increase member engagement and encourage professional development. They host an FMI webinar on financial modeling best practices.
Private Exam An undergraduate program looks to increase the employability of its graduates. They offer private AFM sittings each semester coupled with instruction from a local FMI Approved Training Provider.
Facilitated access to AFM & CFM A graduate program wants its students to have practical financial modeling skills prior to their employment term; they facilitate access to the AFM in order to differentiate their students and allow professors to move into advanced material.
An accounting professor sponsors AFM exam tickets for her top two achievers in order to facilitate their success, then promotes partnership with the FMI to prospective students.

A word from our existing partners
“Achievement of an FMI certification is a strong differential among our students. Recruiters can trust that students who have passed the FMI exam have a high competency in financial modeling and can concentrate on assessing other skill sets. I have found the FMI exams to be a real wakeup call for the students who intend to join a firm requiring financial modeling proficiency. A steadfast preparation is key to passing the exam. Students who successfully pass the exam gain a high degree of self-confidence. The FMI certifications provide them wings for the next steps in their career progression.”
