After taking her first course, Nana decided to return to NYIF because she experienced a learning environment that couldn’t be matched anywhere else. She cites the professionalism of instructors and the hands-on learning techniques separate the New York Institute of Finance from other financial training institutions. Nana wanted to take courses that would refresh her memory of theories learned at school and also keep her skill set up to date in the changing finance industry.
