Executive guidance for

enhancing business management

through spreadsheets

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:

  • Perform sensitivity analysis and alert managers to the financial

    impact of unexpected conditions that might occur

  • Identify the best strategies to maximize profits,

    minimize costs, and achieve other goals

  • Use Monte Carlo simulation to provide a complete picture of the risks

    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.
