I teach FI 413 and FI 513, Financial Modeling, at the Eller College of Management at the University of Arizona.  The course primarily focuses on corporate valuation using Excel and also blends in financial accounting, option valuation and VBA/Javascript programming.  The valuation of start-up firms and technology firms is a key component.  Additionally, students write a customized Monte Carlo simulator in VBA to round out the semester.  I designed the course in 2012 based off my own work experience as a C++ programmer at an engineering firm, accountant/auditor with PricewaterhouseCoopers, and financial consultant.

Students are typically heavily recruited by valuation firms, consulting firms and investment banks.  Employers interested in recruiting or students interested in the course may contact me via the information on my CV.
