Excerpt from course description

Corporate Valuation


The main objective of this course is to provide students with the tools to carry out a business valuation using residual income valuation techniques.

We study the actual financial statements of publicly-traded companies in the assignments that we discuss in class. The course combines accounting principles and investment principles to answer the question: How do I account for value so that I can challenge stock prices with some confidence?
