How To Build A Financial Model - Online Class
Friday, February 22nd from 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Michael Robson, General Manager of Enterprise, General Assembly

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.

Student Takeaways:

  • Understand in which situations a model will be a helpful tool to support decision making 
  • Apply model building “best practices” to reduce errors and improve usability of model 
  • Understand and leverage models to apply basic analysis techniques (e.g., break even analysis, growth rate calculations, simple scenario analysis)

This one-hour livestream will highlight some of the takeaways from the upcoming SXSW 2013 panel. There will be a live Q&A, so come to the chat room with questions ready.
