Investment, valuation and exit strategies


The programme has a strong focus on economic assessments. This also involves an ability to value various strategies and companies based on different assumptions. One fundamental theme is valuation based on cash flows, risks and the present value method.

Even though the starting point is much the same there are some vital differences which it is important to keep in mind.
