Financial Modelling and Forecasting - AFIN890

This unit applies financial modelling and forecasting principles to various methods and theories covered in the corporate finance and financial statement analysis fields. This is an excellent course for students with an interest in a career in corporate finance or financial statement analysis, and combines well with the other Masters units in those fields. The modelling and forecasting principles covered in this course are not simply an application of extrapolative techniques to historical data. Rather, there is an emphasis on modelling the uncertainty, and alerting decision makers, of corporate change as the forecast horizon increases.

Corporate Modelling and Financial Forecasting is very much a hands-on course, with the seminars conducted in the computer laboratories. The Lectures use worked examples throughout, requiring students to be at computer terminals with access to excel and industry standard simulation packages. The worked examples are designed to reinforce the financial modelling and forecasting principles covered in the course.
