My name is Jad Salloum and I was a candidate for the Advanced Financial Modeling class with Professor Louay Assadi. I would like to leave my feedback:
Professor Assadi has completely changed my perspective and my intuition behind finance, because of him I can now lead strategic financial discussions as he implanted the know-how and the knowledge behind each formula and theory. He never struggled to answer any of my questions and the answers he gave me allowed me to exponentially increase my financial knowledge. The way he approaches discussions about topics in finance in specific is sterling, he knows exactly how to make you understand what is going on and more importantly why formulas are as they are, why inputs are as they are, and how we use them in everyday application! His ability to bring practicality to theoretical discussions is beyond amazing, and I will always credit my success to him! Moreover he made the financial modeling course extremely enjoyable and easy, as his explanations are perfect, and because he answered every one of our questions without hesitation; but most importantly he welcomed all of the questions openly and always encouraged us to ask for the intuition behind everything we are doing.
Thank you very much, for I have become more than just a financial modeler due to his class!
