Financial Modelling is a tool that can be used to forecast a picture of a security or a financial instrument or a company’s future financial performance based on the historical performance of the entity. Financial Modelling includes preparation of detailed company specific models which are then used for the purpose of decision making and performing financial analysis. It is nothing but constructing a financial representation of some, or all, aspects of the firm or given security.

The applications of Financial modelling are limitless and is used extensively in Corporate Finance across various roles like M&A, Private Equity, Equity Research, Business Analysis, Business Modeling, Start Ups, Budgeting, Financial Control and Financial Operations. Increasingly, financial modeling is also used for corporate budgeting, business planning, project finance, investment analysis and risk management.

What is an EDP?
Executive development programs are customized and highly targeted short-term programs geared towards executives and managers who show great future potential. There always exists a gap between the level at which an executive performs and their potential. Executive development programs aim to harness this untapped potential and create future-ready leaders of tomorrow.
Why are EDPs necessary?
Most new managers feel as though they have been thrown into the middle of the ocean without a life-jacket. Mastering managerial skills will provide managers with the confidence and skills required to manage themselves as well as the team. The training programs serve to sharpen the essential lessons which can be applied to real life situations.
What is the difference between a MDP and an EDP?
While the format of the workshop is essentially the same, the key difference lies in the target audience for these workshops. Management Development Programs are aimed at current leaders (VP-CXO level professionals) who are already familiar with a topic but want to gain new perspectives as a way of strategic development. Executive Development Programs are aimed at executives and managers—the future leaders—who need knowledge transfer on a subject of current interest in order to make better decisions in their current profiles.
What is the duration of the program?
Our workshops offer intensive training and knowledge transfer in a short span of 2-3 days.
What is the format of the program?
The workshops are conducted as Instructor-led classroom trainings. These workshops are designed and delivered by experienced faculty from the corporate or academic world with proven expertise of executive education. Lunch and refreshments will also be served.
How many participants will be there in each workshop?
Each workshop will have no more than 30 participants to ensure effective learning and personalized attention to the needs of all participants.
I like the program, but the price is too high. What can I do?
We offer 10% discount for early bird enrolments for all our programs. However, if you are really keen on attending the workshop but the price is a constraint, your best bet is to ask your Manager or Training Head to nominate you for the workshop, and thereby the cost can be borne by your company.

  • Reshma Krishnan Head Faculty for Corporate Finance – Imarticus Learning
    I have been working with Vishwanathan on our Corporate Finance and Modelling programs here at Imarticus for over 2 years now. I find his knowledge on financial modeling and valuation, project finance and equity research to be exceptional. His training sessions are very interactive and are a complete package of knowledge, domain experience, industry case studies, and hands-on exercises. Highly recommended trainer for certifications in Modelling and Valuations.
  • Alex H
    Alex Harrison Student of Financial Modelling program
    Vishwa could simplify complex concepts for the audience by relating to real life examples in professional world. He could connect very well with audience due to his personable nature. Normally training sessions are very single dimensional and bookish in nature but Vishwa converts his training into very collaborative sessions, where participants learn out of each other’s work experience and knowledge. An enriching experience.
