you MUST learn excel as well but as applied in finance and business

https://breakingintowallstreet.com/biws/breaking-into-wall-street-courses/ -- the Excel and Fundamentals Courses in Level 2 from this or something similar from Wall Street Prep even though Breaking into Wall Street is better

download the files from here, if the link does not work then use a proxy https://people.highline.edu/mgirvin/excelisfun.htm

Project Finance
http://www.corality.com/ --- they have a lot of free templates/tutorials if you sign up

Very Nice share mate
forgot this one
https://edbodmer.wikispaces.com/PROJECT+FINANCE+MODELS
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2g_Ih-lK1sa3L_1xHacA8w

the idea is that for students in schools/universities studying to enter accounting, economics, finance, operations, marketing, etc do NOT learn Skills that they would apply even after having completed their BBA/MBA.. the only way to learn this is by learning to do what is done in the field via simulations or getting involved in Startups, the day students start their own businesses they learn tons more than they would in school since they have to taken all the functions of a business into consideration along with the relevant information for developing/delivering the product/service they intend to sell

and then they have to APPLY their thinking and make mistakes to learn from by performing in ACTUAL WORK rather than case studies, this also lets them filter out the useless stuff in literature

for example setting up a facility layout, setting up operations (after developing an operational manual) and each step of a process (SOP) then measuring the performance (how exactly), checking the impact upon employee behaviour and reading up on peer-reviewed research papers to see if the approach is justified, developing accounting policy manuals, learning accounting software, understanding what consumers want, in finance investing and the analysis required for it can make students understand how to gather information and see how it will impact your investments, understand how that the markets operate and the related uncertainty not to mention the exposure to corrupt practices which is essential to know in order to protect oneself

if any of you as a student of economics and business do NOT understand the creation of money/fractional reserve banking and the time value of money, then you really cannot understand economics and nor apply any of the economic theory to any real world situations, studying economics without studying banking/finance is pointless

videos like these might help develop some intuitive sense for macro eco


for macro eco, understanding the flows of money helps understand the practical application, however, for applying economic models and theories Paul Krugman's blogs are good:-
https://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/
http://economistsview.typepad.com/economistsview/ --- he has some overhere

other blogs
https://www.intelligenteconomist.com/top-economics-blogs-2016/

For those of you who aim to become economists and aim to do it through the top 10 universities in the world for economics (rankings of business schools vary with subject major) it would help to do Further Math since it will give you a good idea about the math that you will study at undergrad level for economics
