    Empfohlene inhaltliche Vorkenntnisse

    Apart from financial analysis knowhow (Grundkurs SBWL, Business Analysis Project) your performance and level of effort will depend on your Word, Excel and Powerpoint skills. For those who have not used these tools intensively we recommend to get (re)acquainted with these programs before the start of the course. We'll provide basic templates for Word and Powerpoint, but not for Excel. VBA programming is not required, but may be helpful.

    Specifically, we recommend a look at the following issues:

    Microsoft Word: consistent formatting of documents

    Microsoft Excel: separation of data and models, absolute and relative cell references, standardizing workbook formats, customized cell formats, conditional formatting, linking worksheets, resolving circular references

    Microsoft Powerpoint: basic forms of presenting information, shapes provided with powerpoint, elements of PPT templates.
