Course description

Value Investing (Online): Making Intelligent Investment Decisions

Legendary investors like Warren Buffett and Mario Gabelli have been guided by the value investing principles during their entire careers. It’s an investment approach that helps investors identify, research, and buy securities priced well below their true market value.

This online program is designed to give you a strong foundation in the value investing process. We’ll give you tools and strategies to collect and analyze information as well as an integrated framework that teaches you how to identify opportunities for investment that others may miss.

Throughout the program, we ask questions such as:

  • Does diversification create value?
  • How do I factor in economies of scale, first mover advantage, and barriers to entry?
  • When does the value investor know when to buy?
  • When does growth create value?

Who should attend?

Individual investors and portfolio managers will benefit from learning the value investing methodology, uncovering opportunities that others miss. Beyond that, the analytical approach teaches critical thinking about growth and profitability, valuable for all corporate decision makers.

Training Content

Our approach to this program is to teach the core value investing concepts and then take the learners through in-depth case studies where they will apply these concepts. Key components include video lectures, case studies, and application exercises, so the methods are put to use with real-world company examples.
