What is Financial Modelling about?

While there is a lot of value in mastering the basic and intermediate array of functions of Microsoft Excel, for some, simply automating the day-to-day arithmetic functions involved in a simple balance sheet will not be enough to meet the financial accounting needs of a large company. More in-depth knowledge is required. This Financial Modelling course will equip you with the skills to significantly improve your company’s control of its financials. It includes lessons on the following:

Creating reports from multiple sources  

Simplifying reporting

Reconciliation model  

Creating reports where actuals, budgets and prior years change with lists  

How to compile an age analysis in 5 minutes

Amortization tables
