Financial Modeling Topics

What are Financial Modeling Topics?

The main topics required to learn financial modeling include accounting, finance, Excel, valuation, math, and logic. While modeling is often considered its own topic, there is a surprisingly high degree of accounting and Excel that’s required. At CFI, we believe a well-rounded analyst needs to have a solid understanding of all these topics in order to be successful in building models.
