This one-day course is a prerequisite for the subsequent financial modelling courses, Financial Modelling - Comprehensive, Financial Modelling - Advanced (& Introduction to VBA) and Debt Modelling (with LBO). It covers all the basic excel required in order to start to build a financial model. There is little time to recap these excel basics on the subsequent courses, so it important that delegates who are at all concerned about their basic excel ability should attend this course first. Laptops (excel v.2013) are provided.

Course Overview:

Numerous practical, hands-on exercises are demonstrated to illustrate all the basic excel features and functionality, from basic navigation through to more complex “lookup” functions. There is a mix of following the instructor on the screen, and exercises designed to help the delegates work the answer out for themselves.
