Executive guidance for
enhancing business management
Learning from spreadsheet models is cheaper, faster, and less hazardous than learning in the real
world. Corporate Financial Analysis with Microsoft® Excel® contains numerous examples demonstrating
how to use spreadsheet models to help you manage more effectively under a wide range of
conditions and assumptions. You’ll learn how to use Excel’s powerful tools to:
impact of unexpected conditions that might occur
minimize costs, and achieve other goals
and probabilities of doing business in an uncertain environment
Corporate Financial Analysis with Microsoft® Excel® provides practical, real-life examples to help you
relate to both the quantitative and qualitative sides of business management. In addition to using
spreadsheets for analysis, you will learn how to apply them in management presentations that are
convincing, and be able to justify your recommendations.
Corporate Financial Analysis with Microsoft® Excel® helps you become a better manager and decisionmaker—
not just a skilled spreadsheet programmer. In today’s evolving markets, it is a must-have
toolbox of skills for every manager.
