One of the fundamental questions in Corporate Finance is how to find the “right” value for a company. This course will focus on learning core valuation concepts with the aim of breaking Valuation down to its key components and separating “value” from “price”.

The techniques to be introduced include discounted cash flow and multiple-based methods. The seminar will also provide practical examples of the key pitfalls and biases in Valuation.
