FAQ

What prompted you to start this school?

You may be aware, I run a corporate consulting firm in the name and style of Corporate Clinic™. I generally recruit freshers and experienced professionals. Uniformly my interview with them will contain financial statement analysis. I give them an annual report and ask them to tell me whether the company is strong or weak. Generally I found that many of them lack analytical skills because they have not been exposed to practice while in their business school or college. They are strong in their theoretical skills. Hence I thought why should we not start an academy that bridges the theoretical knowledge and practical skills.

You mean to say that financial statement analysis will give them the practical knowledge?

Is the training provided uniformly to all like graduates, post-graduates and professionals?

No. The training program is so designed that the students who have passed graduation would be restricted to the theories they know. Similarly for post graduates and professionals. If you go through my site you will find that content of the program is designed based on the subject they have gone through in the school. We would add a little more to practice.
