I first came across the CISI as a university student when I was searching for professional qualifications that would boost my career prospects. The CISI is important to me because it’s opened me up to so much in the world of financial operations. If you are considering pursuing the CISI examinations, you should do it because of the great value added to your skills across a wide range of sectors. End consumers require professionals and the CISI delivers professionals.
