How to Build a Financial Model

A session at SXSW Interactive 2013

Saturday 9th March, 2013

3:30pm to 6:30pm (CST)

RSVP Required - Models mean different things to different people, but they are basically a simplified representation of a system built to support predictions and/or decision making. In this class, we'll talk about first steps in building a model, how to define the purpose/use of the model, and how to determine what business questions you're trying to solve. The class will be hands-on and students will work in groups to build a basic model, which we will review as a class.

Comfort with basic excel commands: “if” statements, copy and paste, addition, subtraction. If you need to brush up on Excel “if” statements, check out this article: http://office.microsoft.com/en-u...
