This course brings together the worlds of computational math and finance to develop next-level proficiency in financial business planning and decision making optimization – all within Excel.

Mathematical optimization (rather than process or engineering optimization) allows us to maximize profit under nearly any type of constraint such as budget, capital availability, production capacity, materials availability, and scheduling times.

In this course, you will not only learn how optimization is applied in finance and how to use and master optimization solvers, but also how to lay out a well-structured financial model in any scenario.

In each of the hands-on practice sessions, we spend time covering all the financial concepts used as well as laying out the right quantitative model fit. These practice examples cover capital allocation across investments, working cash management, manufacturing input scheduling, and inventory order management.

The course comes with 7 great downloadable resources, including 6 Excel financial models as well as a helpful Solver debugging PDF. You’ll use these resources while working through the examples in the course but can also re-use and modify them for your own optimization needs.

Once you have completed this course, you will be able to manage and model any of these domains with skill and insight, and maximize profit or minimize cost accordingly.

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
