INTRODUCTION

This is a self-study course that goes beyond the textbook and teaches you real-world skill sets. This financial course will teach you how to build a financial model from scratch and will equip you with industry best practices, special tips, common pitfalls (and how to avoid it), project finance examples and a whole lot of other things. By the end of the course, you’ll develop the core skill sets using financial model templates and will be ready to fast track your career.

The need for this dedicated project finance course stems from its very characteristics when compared to an equity research financial model i.e. three statements plus DCF. A project finance model has no historical data, the timeline is very long i.e. 30-50 years compared to a 3-5-year time frame in equity research financial model. Moreover, the valuation tool applied here is IRR & NPV compared to DCF and RV in equity research.

What Student’s Say?

I found your thread on Reddit (/r/Excel) and signed up for this course right away. This course has been extremely helpful as I started out with just a basic understanding of pivot tables and came out with a much better understanding. This will certainly help me in my job, especially when looking to efficiently summarize and present well-organized data to others. I especially found the Grouping functions extremely useful! I look forward to using this new-to-me functionality. Your videos are very well made and very easy to follow. I enjoyed the fast-paced lessons which fit perfectly into my day at work as well as my learning style. Thanks again! I look forward to taking additional classes!

– Kevin Stanley

Good course, get to know about the technical and fundamental about the financial model. but it’d be nice to have a few quizzes to check whether the students really understand. we want to make sure that we understand as well, not just to think that we understand but really don’t.
