Financial Analysis and Valuation provides an introduction to valuation techniques widely used in the accounting and finance sector to value firms, drawing heavily upon financial statement analysis. This analytical approach considers relevant accounting policies that may impact the quality of the reported figures and the assessment of underlying risk. Students will develop practical skills through the use of financial modelling to develop and evaluate valuation models for a specific firm (e.g., a takeover target). Although this is an accounting subject, the topics are relevant to those contemplating careers in investment banking, equity research, funds management, corporate finance and business consulting. This subject draws heavily on knowledge and skills acquired in pre-requisite subjects.

Assumed knowledge is the minimum level of knowledge of a subject area that students are assumed to have
through previous study. It is the responsibility of students to ensure they meet the assumed knowledge
expectations of the subject. Students who do not possess this prior knowledge are strongly recommended against
enrolling and do so at their own risk. No concessions will be made for students’ lack of prior knowledge.
