Renewable Energy Project Finance Boot Camp

All Events
Friday January 18, 2019, 2:00 p.m. — 5:00 p.m.
Evans Hall, 2420

Professional development opportunity for F&ES students!  The Teaching Fellows for the Renewable Energy Project Finance course will be hosting two Finance and Excel Boot Camps in January.

All students are welcome to attend! The sessions are aimed at getting Non-MBA students up to speed on foundational concepts, although MBA students are still welcome to attend.

The first part of the session will be dedicated to covering the following topics:

  • Basic Excel function such as Fixed References, Lookup Functions, Cell and Range Names amongst others;
  • Excel formatting styles and suggestions for an easily auditable model; and
  • The application and use of simple financial concepts such as Internal Rate of Return (IRR), Net Present Value (NPV) and other pertinent metrics.

In addition to a short lecture session, we will also be working through simplified examples to reinforce the topics above. The final part of the Boot Camp will serve as an open Office Hours for those who might be interested in asking specific questions regarding the Boot Camp, the first course assignment, or the course more generally. We will also endeavor to record the session for those who might not be able to attend in person. You are welcome to come and go as you please, as we know that some students may only be interested in the open Office Hours. 


If you do plan to attend, please register so we can get a headcount for coffee and snacks.
