Description: There are two key factors in any financial decision-making: Time value of money and risk and return. However, there are far more factors than simply looking at long-term impact and whether the possible rewards are offset by the risk. In this course, student will study other real world variables that comprise valuation, particularly tax laws and regulations. By the end of this course, according to Kaul, students will be able to “conduct analysis of most projects and companies.” Along with reviewing the fundamentals of time value and risk and return, the course will examine the effects of areas like leveraging and bankruptcy on valuation. The course will be taught through videos, with students evaluated through mandatory exercises and a final test.

Review: “It is really challenging course and I spend really a lot of time to make quizes. But I liked lector and his way of presenting the material. Now I’m sure that after this course I understand valuation better than ever before!” For additional reviews, click here.
