Financial Modeling
Financial modeling is an integral part of any finance and investment decision. In order to analyze the financial and economic viability of a project, financial analysts frequently use computer based financial models. This course will enable students to construct and work with financial models. Students will be introduced to simulation and optimization models as well as variousforecasting techniques. The focus would be to develop general principles that can be applied to the construction of financial models in aviation and aerospace industry.

The primary goal of the course is to relate finance theory to financial modeling to enhance the skills of a financial analyst in making decisions related to risk management and portfolio optimization within the aviation and aerospace industry.

Upon completion of the course the student will be able to:1. Develop current financial models using tools such as Excel and @RISK analysis.2. Develop a practical understanding of the financial theory underlying financial models in the aviation industry.3. Utilize financial models and theory to address a variety of financial planning problems in the aviation industry.4. Communicate their findings from financial models clearly and concisely.5. Analyze results of simulations from financial models to identify the key drivers in a case.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
