This course will provide students with solid Excel skills and the ability to prepare a detailed operational financial model to provide to prospective investors and to help run their businesses. The completed model will not only provide a monthly income statement, balance sheet, and cash flow forecasts for five years (along with quarterly and annual summary data), but also a one-page summary of all the data, providing a powerful endcap to the model and the course.
