Currently, with a team of more than 20 individuals, CEM plans on venturing into new finance-related avenues in the future. In order to further its expansion, the company plans on collaborating with Ed-Tech Giants with regard to B2B transactions, which will help it reach out to the unserved population looking for benefits of E-learning. CEM’s business model revolves around its impressive portfolio of courses conducted. The portfolio, consisting of over 30 courses conducted on a trilingual basis, includes Stock Market Investing, Fixed Income Securities Investing, Real Estate and Cryptocurrency investing.
