Corporate Valuation is a “capstone” finance course that draws on core corporate finance principles, theories and methods previously studies.  Students will work in teams to value an existing company, present their analysis and investment recommendation.  The techniques covered include discounted cash flow, multiple-based and asset-based valuations.  Because of the richness of the approach, most of the focus will be on discounted cash flow analysis.  While this entails more work and requires significant student initiative, this type of ‘learning by doing’ should provide a lasting framework.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Demonstrate an in depth knowledge of valuations essentials;
  2. Be able to implement and communicate techniques used to place a value on a company’s operations; and
  3. Be able to use valuation tools to plan and monitor key corporate decisions.
