Certification in Applied FSA aims to equip analysts with the knowledge to try and answer the question “Why” when they spot a ratio. The idea is to not just calculate a number, but try and see why the number looks like what it does. This aims to take analysts beyond the realm of what is taught in conventional Financial Statement Analysis.

Financial analysis certification involves comprehensive understanding of financial analysis techniques, theories and concepts. The certification is useful for individuals in finance, accounting, and business management positions who are involved in the analysis of financial data and the making of investment decisions. It is also ideal for those who wish to pursue a career in investment banking, corporate finance, or other finance-related fields.

The certification process involves studying a comprehensive curriculum that covers various aspects of financial analysis, such as financial statement analysis, cash flow analysis, ratios, etc. Upon completing the curriculum, individuals must pass a test to demonstrate their mastery of the concepts. Financial analysis certification is recognized by employers. It not only demonstrates the student’s expertise in financial analysis, but also their commitment to continuous learning and professional development.

Financial analysis certification is a valuable investment for individuals who wish to start their careers in finance and business management. It is a testament to their dedication to the finance and provides them with the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in today's competitive financial landscape.
