Course description

Financial Analysis for Corporate Valuation

Financial Analysis for Corporate Valuation is a 2-day course that can be booked individually or as part of the 5-day Corporate Financial Analysis and Valuation School.

The valuation of corporates is a fundamental skill required of a wide range of finance professionals including equity analysts, strategists, corporate finance executives, fund managers, PE/VC executives and general bankers. The recent volatility of corporate valuations, combined with the emergence of new sectors, makes understanding the theory and practice of valuation essential. Module 1 of the course offers a comprehensive introduction to financial analysis from the point of view of valuation.

This practical course is taught using inter-active sessions that comprise lectures followed by short, practical and inter-active case studies and exercises to reinforce the concepts covered in each teaching session. Emphasis is placed on participants gaining hands­ on experience of the various valuation techniques.
