Not the most exciting blog title, but there's
something you must know about Microsoft Excel and how it relates to the Bridge
MBA program. You use it, you learn it, and you will love it. Spring Quarter
requires the completion of a Financial Modeling course in which many of the
functions you probably never heard of are put to use. I have been greatly
tested in this class and could not be more thankful.
The course has required my classmates and I to take
a word problem (of all kinds, but mostly financial) and implement the answer
into a flexible and easy to use workbook. By flexible I mean our workbooks are
able to have inputs manipulated but still produce similar outputs (similar in
that the process the workbook uses is fixed, therefore inputs can be changed to
give different outputs but are obtained in the same manner). Now, before you to
sleep because I know this has not been my most exciting blog; I want to speak
of the benefits this class has presented and will present in the future.
Microsoft Excel is a vital tool used all across the
business world that has become a necessity for companies and many of
their job functions. Having experience with Microsoft Excel has become a
requirement for many jobs available these days and this class has provided
me with valuable experience with this tool many companies use quite
regularly. Learning Microsoft Excel has been no walk in the park, but the
challenge has been quite enjoyable. There have been many times when I do not
know where to start when it comes to creating a workbook, but once I begin to
apply the concepts I have learned in class it makes solving the problem at hand
much easier. The advanced knowledge I continue to learn about Microsoft Excel
will be a great asset to me in the future and I continue to enjoy learning more
and more about it.
