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. You 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.
