Financial Modelling School

Join this comprehensive course on financial modelling from basic to advanced modules using excel.

    The Financial Modelling School is made up of 2 individually bookable modules

    Financial Modelling School: Module 1 - Best Practice Financial Modelling in Excel

    Financial Modelling School: Module 2 - Advanced Financial Modelling in Excel



    In an uncertain economic environment, it is vital to plan ahead using robust financial models.

    The course is designed to support junior and middle-ranking staff in setting-up their own financial models, or in using models received from other sources. The principal aim of the course will be to learn to build and use financial models as tools to understand transactions, identify risk and perform sensitivity analysis.

    The principal aim of the course is enable participants to use Microsoft Excel to prepare logical and easy-to-use financial models to support transactions, forecasts and planning for ongoing business streams. These skills can also be used to support credit approvals and reviews by lenders and to support the organisation to run or sponsor projects. 


    Make yourself and your staff more productive by using Excel better.

    Reduce the danger of spreadsheet errors by learning how to structure Excel books logically and robustly.


    The learning methods used are practical, as practice of newly-learned techniques enables a deeper and more effective building of skills. Each section will be covered briefly as a module in a traditional class style, but the real learning experience will be found in the exercises within each module. Suggested solutions to each exercise will be provided and discussed, and participants will be encouraged to review their work independently. As the time available is limited, and the needs of the participants will vary, each section will be covered at a level appropriate to the average ability and experience of a typical delegate, but supporting materials will be available for further in-depth learning according to participants’ own needs.


    Delegates will receive all spreadsheets used during the course


    The course is designed to support junior and middle financial analysts, modellers and their managers in creating financial models on a consistent and focussed basis.  Some previous use of Excel is assumed, but delegates will not need an advanced knowledge.

    Make it easier to review Excel spreadsheets by building consistent, robust structures that are error-free. 

    Who Should Attend?

    Participants who have some experience of financial modeling, but need more in-depth exposure to correct structuring of models, better tools for building them and experience in using them to understand and analyze transactions.
