5 Reasons Why Financial Modelling Course Is Must For MBA’s

1. Your MBA /CA / CFA  is Too Theoretical :-

 I hate to break the bad news to you, But all courses teach you completely  theory and definitions about things like – what is cash, what is a debt downplay, how does a company raise money etc.
   That’s why bankers are tired of interviewing MBA’s,CA, CFA’s who don’t know the basic thing about  how to use MS Excel to analyze companies.
But what companies like Goldman Sachs and Deutsche Bank need you to know is how do you rule the fair stock price of a company given all their financial statements.

2. Fundamentally Understand How a Company Works :- 
If go for advanced financial modeling the right way, you will acknowledge  the fundamentals of how a company works. Once you understand this carefully your scope for growth in Corporate Finance is limitless.

The only technical skill you have as a MBA/CA/CFA is your ability to perform detailed corporate analysis such as
