Students are Saying...
Investopedia Academy provided me the tools to expand my financial analysis skills with a fun and easy to understand course.
I am so impressed with Investopedia Academy’s Financial Modeling course. I fully trust the experience and comprehensive knowledge of Andrew. The course material and continuous access give me comfort as I attempt to learn and understand financial modeling.
There is so much content on the internet regarding trading that it is overwhelming. Investopedia's 'Become a Day Trader Course' gave me everything I needed and the perfect basis to begin trading. I really valued David Green's emphasis on minimizing risk because this is something I haven't seen on other websites and tutorials. It's not how much you make, it's how much you keep!
As someone looking for a new income path, Investopedia Academy was exactly what I was looking for. Options for Beginners course and Become a Day Trader provided me a foundation of how to trade. The courses helped me understand the big picture of trading and the risks involved.
After serving 25 years as a Naval Officer, I transitioned careers to banking. With no prior Excel skills or experience, this course quickly allowed me to feel competent when using Excel in my new position.
