FIN 4453: Financial Modeling
Course Description for Financial Modeling
Prerequisite: Permission of the instructor is required.
Description: This course will teach the user intense Microsoft Excel-based financial modeling. While we start with some basic functions, the course involves very advanced finance from other finance courses. Therefore, an understanding of basic corporate finance, investment, and derivatives theories is assumed and not the focus of this course. Rather, the focus in this course is on teaching the user how to model a particular financial theorem in Microsoft Excel. For example, you will learn how to estimate betas and the security market line in Microsoft Excel, but an understanding of the topic is assumed.
