I dont know. My boss and I have an unwritten contract that I can try to learn as much as VBA coding as possible for the next 5 months. As long as I handle my daily tasks.

It ain't what you don't know that gets you in trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.

Look at corporate finance institute…has an online certification certificate…..pretty well done and can complete in a few months at your own pace.  also affordable.

I have similar plans. Aside from excel VBA/macro stuff, what coding languages does everyone suggest? R, Python? 

If you're the first out the door, that's not called panicking

+1 as well

FMI Website actually has a designation for this and I have registered for it as well.   May be worth your while and it is gaining worldwide acceptance

The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little "extra"

If you want to pursue your career in Data Science and Machine Learning and want to decide between R and Python, then i would recommend Python because of greater community support.

I am Level 1 Certified FAST financial modeller. But FMVATM modelling approach seems more appealing to me. I plan to pass FMVATM certification during this year.

Think wise and act!
