The primary focus of this course is the development of a sound methodology to build "what if" spreadsheet models. Students begin with detailed instruction on basic commands and functions, then progress to common business cases in which the design of the spreadsheet is of paramount importance. In addition to model building, the course will cover the basics of MS Excel, charts, names, pivot tables, filters, goal seek and scenarios.
