Course Overview


The “Corporate Valuation” course offers a comprehensive exploration of the foundational principles and advanced techniques required for accurately assessing the value of corporates.


This in-depth curriculum begins with a distinction between price and value, addressing the influence of share market trends, and detailing various valuation and pricing techniques alongside their strengths and weaknesses. It delves into the central role of risk, company dynamics including cash flow volatility, and the critical analysis of free cash flow (FCF), return on capital (ROC), and internal rate of return (IRR), while highlighting the limitations of accounting-based data.


The course further examines the pricing of risk and discounted cash flow (DCF) methods, sensitivities analysis, and the impact of financing decisions on valuation, including the effects of leverage and the concept of optimal capital structure.


Participants will also learn to identify and correct frequent errors in valuation models, understand the intricacies of pricing including cross-border comparative analysis and the valuation implications for leveraged financings, private equity, and leveraged buyouts (LBOs). The course concludes with strategies for enhancing shareholder value, the correct calculations of IRR & NPV, and forecasting corporate performance through financial modeling.


Aimed at finance professionals, this masterclass equips participants with the skills to make informed valuation decisions, leveraging both theoretical knowledge and practical applications.
