Financial Modelling Courses for Various Finance Applications

Financial modelling has a number of different applications in corporate finance that all revolve around making numerical or quantitative predictions about how financial markets and actors will behave. These include:

  • Capital markets
  • Cash flow forecasting
  • Financial statement analysis
  • Project finance
  • Capital budgeting
  • Cost of capital
  • Scenario planning
  • Business valuation

Consequently, professional financial modelling courses exist in a range of different forms. Some courses take a generic approach and focus primarily on the logic that underpins the development of any financial model, while others will focus on a specific application. Alternatively, a training programme may cover a particular financial product, service, or industry, providing participants with more in-depth knowledge of the particularities of financial modelling as applied to, for example, oil & gas projects.

Professionals can therefore choose from a broad range of financial modelling courses that will help them develop the exact skills needed to develop the financial models that are most relevant to their role, sector and future career ambitions.

Financial modelling software: Microsoft Excel and VBA

Though financial models can be developed simply using pen and paper, it has become increasingly convenient and fruitful to use computer software programmes. This is largely due to the reduced risk of error as well as the capacity to easily perform complex analyses & calculations with more sophisticated financial models.

Microsoft Excel is by far the most popular software used for this purpose, not least because of its widespread use in business environments for a number of other purposes. As a result, proficiency in Microsoft Excel has come to be seen as a necessary pre-requisite for many occupations that require financial modelling skills, as well as a critical factor in career progression. Professionals looking to develop their expertise can therefore opt for financial modelling courses that focus specifically on making the most of the Excel software and, for very complex financial models, the VBA (Visual Basic Application) programming language. The latter is used primarily to create executable programmes that make it possible to automate various aspects of Excel, saving the user valuable time in the development of advanced financial models.

Training formats 

Financial modelling courses are mostly offered as open courses at a training institution, in order for participants to gain hands-on, practical training with case studies and ongoing tutor guidance. The majority are offered as short courses, but longer online courses are also available for those looking for a more flexible study format. Financial modelling courses can also be offered in-house, so companies can gain direct training and help on modelling for their specific function and/or application.
