Business Valuations using Microsoft Excel – Online Course
This Eight Hour Business Valuations using Microsoft Excel course will help you to extend your business valuation and finance function skills in Excel.

On completion of this highly practical, hand on training course, attendees will be able to:
Review the fundamentals of business valuation principles
Use Excel’s finance functions with greater confidence
Consider single stock investment analysis
Appreciate investment valuations using Excel
Work through portfolio performance evaluation
The course starts with an overview of what the fundamentals of business valuation are. Step by step, we will build on our existing and then our new knowledge and skills. We are aiming in this course to take you from basic or little business valuation knowledge, via your own aspirations, to a much more in depth knowledge of it.
This is an intensive course and delegates will be exposed to a variety of practical model building tasks.
With the help of the Course Director, delegates will leave this course with the confidence and ability to apply their learning in business valuation effectively.
This programme will be delivered through a series of realistic, practical, and interactive case studies and worked examples, demonstrating how and why each technique is used. Emphasis is placed on the delegates gaining practical, hands-on experience of the design and construction of financial models in Excel.
Delegates will also benefit from formal and informal insights from the presenter. Comprehensive notes and PowerPoint slides together with Excel exercise outcomes will be provided free of charge for delegates’ future reference.
Every two hour session will comprise an introduction and worked example(s) of the topics listed. Delegates will then be provided with additional and supporting tasks that will consolidate their learning. At every stage, the course director will be available to answer questions and suggest solutions to problems.
Delegates should already be confident in using the main functions and utilities that come with Microsoft Excel: the Course Director will be using Office365 and delegates are expected to be using the same or as near to the same version as that
You will be provided with all appropriate training materials both in advance and throughout the course. Please familiarize yourself with any course materials provided in advance of the course before the course begins
