Financial Modeling

A financial model is a mathematical model designed to showcase the performance of a physical or financial asset. In this program, you will learn how to prepare a financial model using live business problems and case studies. This will equip you with the skills you need to excel in the real world.

As a valuation expert, you will spend most of your day in front of an excel spreadsheet. In the CFM program, we conduct our sessions on Microsoft Excel. Unlike other similar programs that are very ‘Formula Focused’, CFM integrates Excel training and practice throughout the curriculum
