New York Institute of Finance Partners with edX to Offer Next-Gen Yield Curve Analysis and M&A Training

NEW YORK – June 8th, 2015 – Leading financial education training provider the New York Institute of Finance (NYIF) announced that it will offer two new courses on edX, building on an existing partnership between the two organizations.

The courses, Yield Curve Analysis and the Mergers & Acquisitions Professional Certificate, are electronic adaptations of NYIF’s popular classroom programs. Emphasizing real-world relevant skills, both courses are taught by instructors who are veterans of Wall Street, a hallmark of the New York Institute of Finance educational strategy.

Yield Curve Analysis and the Mergers & Acquisition Professional Certificate will both take place entirely online on edX’s state-of-the-art learning platform, which combines the expertise and interaction of a classroom with the flexibility of electronic learning. Featuring video lectures, interactive exercises, and periodic knowledge checks and exams, the courses will culminate in an accredited certificate from NYIF.

“Our partnership with edX is part of a systematic approach to move our classroom experience online,” said Lee Arthur, managing director of NYIF. “The edX platform contains many of the features we need to enable group interaction and skills transfer, and these first courses are really just the start of our work together."
