Very Quickly,

Chandoo.org is partnering with Pristine to start a free course on financial modeling using excel. If you are interested, take this short survey and tell us what topic you want to learn.

Do you want to learn Excel Financial Modeling?

Back Story

One of the advantages of going to a premier MBA college is that you are bound to have good network. Since I started working on my own, I have been looking for ways to collaborate with others in same business (training, consulting) so that I could learn from them, tie up with them or help them. That is why I was naturally excited when I heard from Pristine. It is a training institute started by 2 of my immediate seniors in MBA college – Paramdeep & Pawan along with few others.

Pawan wrote to me a few weeks back asking if I want to collaborate with them in an “Excel Financial Modeling Training Program”. I was naturally excited and agreed to work with them to run a course on Financial Modeling.

How it works?

Here is how it is going to work. We are going to start a FREE Financial Modeling Course thru this blog. We will post 4-6 articles as a series explaining one type of modeling activity. Just like all other awesome articles on Chandoo.org, this free course too will have downloadable examples, kick-ass illustrations and will be a great read.

Towards the end of this free course, we are going to ask you if you are interested in a paid training program. If so, you tell us your name and email address. We will send you information on the course, pricing and methodology as it becomes available. You can join our training then.

But, before we begin the free course, I need to know what topic you want to learn for free. Financial Modeling is a large area (I know this because I dozed enough in my accounting and finance classes in MBA. They were the best naps) and knowing what works best for you can be very useful. So I have prepared a short survey asking you what you are interested to learn.

Who is this for?

This program is for people who do (or need to do) financial modeling on regular basis. It is for people who have knowledge of excel and basic financial understanding and gearing to build a complete model using excel to evaluate, lets say a project.

About Pristine:

Pristine  is a training institute based in India offering courses on CFA, FRM and countless other financial stuff. They have more than 300,000 hours of training experience and have conducted financial modeling courses in various investment banks in India. The founders are my immediate seniors in b-school and I know them personally.

As you can already guess, the financial modeling course we are going to do is a joint venture. So if we make money out of it, we split that. If we fail, we just get off the ground and start running, again.

So go ahead and take the survey. Tell us what you would like to learn in the free financial modeling course.

    Hey Chandoo!

    I recently came across financial modeling program offered by http://www.jpfis.com they seem to be very professional? do you guys have any idea on the quality of program?

    They charge a very high fee though compared to pristine, I do not mind paying higher fee if quality is good. Thanks
