Training Course on Financial Modelling and Valuation

Financial modeling is the process of creating a summary of a company’s expenses and earnings in the form of a spreadsheet that can be used to calculate the impact of a future event or decision. It is a representation in numbers of a company’s operations in the past, present, and the forecasted future. Such models are intended to be used as decision-making tools. Company executives might use them to estimate the costs and project the profits of a proposed new project. This training on financial modelling and valuation offers you an opportunity to enhance your analytical abilities for quicker and better decision making.
