Financial Modelling Level 2 

This programme is designed for delegates wishing to elevate their financial modelling skills using Microsoft Excel as the model building tool.

This 4-day course covers the building of robust models to solve problems, analyse data and extract information.

The focus will not primarily be on Excel skills, but rather financial modelling and problem-solving skills using Excel to enable this.

The core principles of appropriate model design, structure and procedures will be illustrated through case studies with the assistance of the instructor, delegates will work through various practical exercises. The ‘solutions’ to case studies will be made available after the completion of each exercise to enable delegates to review overnight, should they wish. Also, PowerPoint slides will cover most of the modelling techniques and Excel functions used to provide a user guide during the course and thereafter.
