International Financial Modeling Competition Modeloff 2017 Recap

The last time I wrote about Modeloff was in 2013, the first international financial modeling competition I attended when KeyCuts just started. The result of the Modeloff competition in 2013 were a series of blog posts detailing some of the questions asked during the competition and the ways to solve the problems. Check out this blog post with one of the questions from the competition back then.

Modeloff 2013

That was then, this is 2017. This time around, I had the opportunity to attend the Global Training Camp in NYC which is a 2-day camp done in conjunction with the Modeloff finals. The topics covered during the training camp included Modeling Best Practices, LBO Modeling, Data Visualization, and more. There was also a track of classes taught by professionals from the Microsoft team. All in all, it was great to be a part of the community of Excel enthusiasts of all ages learning together.
