Excel and Financial Modeling Workshop | WINTER QUARTER
The Undergraduate Business Society’s Excel and Financial Modeling Workshop is designed to give UCLA’s undergraduate students an edge on the competition by equipping them with technical skills used in many entry level finance positions. The workshop entails weekly sessions where students are taught various Excel skills and shortcuts commonly used in finance positions. The workshop begins with a brief review of basic accounting practices and principles, before moving into the modeling component. The body of the workshop provides a thorough rundown of Excel functions and shortcuts, and culminates with the creation of a basic three-statement financial model. Each workshop session is run by senior UBS Board members who have worked in various finance positions.
