    Unlike the traditional model of enrolling in specific topic courses, of which parts are outdated or irrelevant to the needs of specialists, FUSE built a program that trains future valuation professionals from a practitioner’s point of view, without sacrificing the rigor of theoretical underpinnings, by integrating relevant portions of larger topics and simulating the workings of valuation firms by leveraging current software and databases.
