Fundamentals of Financial Modeling

This course can either be taken in a classroom environment or live online. Get in touch to find out more.

This one-day course practically applies Excel within a financial framework to explore how forecast financial models can be efficiently created and modified. The efficient use of Excel is key and so the course starts by ensuring the participants can quickly and accurately harness Excel’s tools and functionality. We then apply these skills to the best practice modeling guidelines to build, and then flex, the structure and modules of a forecast model.

Who should attend?

Professionals in corporates and financial institutions who need to create useful and robust financial models. Attendees should be able to use the basic facilities of Microsoft Excel and have basic accounting knowledge.
