What you'll learn in this financial modeling training:

5 Day Core Comprehensive: Financial Modeling and Corporate Valuation

Financial Modeling and Corporate Valuation course explores the modeling and valuation techniques commonly used by Wall Street firms. The proven curriculum provides practical application of the standards and methods that a practitioner needs to be a top performer. Led by our team of experienced instructors, all of whom are former practitioners, the primary focus of the program is to teach participants the practical applications of the theoretical methodologies. Participants will blend accounting, finance, and Excel skills into the construction of three interactive models from “scratch” (3 statement, M&A, and LBO) over the course of 5 intense days of training.

Pre-work/Pre-requisites


Prior to the start of the course, each participant will need to do the following:
  • Complete a pre-reading exercise: this will be emailed out 1 week prior to the course, and will take 2-6 hours to complete depending on prior financial statement experience
  • Fundamental knowledge of financial accounting: TTS recommends our self-study, The Fundamentals of Financial Accounting and Analysis.
What to Bring

Each participant will need the following:
  • PC Laptop with an English version of Microsoft Excel, Word, and Adobe Acrobat Reader
  • USB memory stick ability (for file sharing and distribution)
  • Financial calculator, preferably the HP-12C or HP-17BII+
Thinking of bringing a Mac? Using a Mac for Financial Modeling presents several issues; the keyboards are different causing many of the shortcuts to be unavailable, as well as the functionality of Excel itself. It is highly recommended that all participants bring a PC to the session. If a Mac is the only option, we would recommend running Windows on your Mac.
