Financial Modelling for Informed Decision Making

Financial Modelling is an important tool for decision making in business and non-profit organisations. Skilful mastery allows users to check the financial implications of decisions beforehand and choose the most profitable and robust courses of action. Users can also test scenarios and check sensitivity of outcomes to key variables.

SIMS at Strathmore University recognises this need and has developed a comprehensive short course in Financial Modelling to instil in learners the expertise to develop robust financial models.

Objectives

To introduce participants to the concepts of financial modelling and its building blocks; enable development of integrated financial models using MS Excel software; and carry out scenario testing and sensitivity analysis for optimal decisions. Cases on the course include a model to setup a new business; and a forecasting model for an existing listed company.
