Business financial modeling is one of the most under-rated skills at University, but a must-have skill in business. You can’t start or run a business without a solid forecast or ability to evaluate “what-if” scenarios. Your boss, or your investors, will expect a professional financial model.
This course will bridge the gap from theory to reality. Develop a best-practice financial model based on a real-life case study, in a framework that you can use to evaluate your own business. Understand the impact of leverage and equity dilution due to multiple capital raises, using CAP tables.
Learn from industry leaders and ivy league professors either in-person at a public session, on-site at your offices or campus, online, or with blended learning – combining online and in-person sessions.
