    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 with in the aviation and aerospace industry

    Upon successful completion of this 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.

    These are the major assignments in the course and will be the basis for evaluation according to the grading scale shown in the table below.
