Financial Modeling Using Excel
For all of the expensive subscriptions and analytics programs, a huge amount of the work that Wall Street analysts and managers do is done on the Excel software that you have on your own computer. With just a little bit of effort, you too can create a variety of financial and analytical models. This course will provide students with an understanding of how to build financial models using Excel.
The core of what every analyst does is his or her collection of financial models. These are simply spreadsheets that hold (and help form) the analyst's views on the likely financial results for the company in question. They can be incredibly detailed and complex, or relatively simplistic, but the model will never be any better than the quality of the work that goes into forming the estimates.
