Omschrijving After passing the course Corporate Valuation, students are able to value a company using the best practices from the corporate finance practice, and to evaluate these practices from an academic and a professional perspective. The course prepares students for a job as a company analyst, financial analyst, portfolio manager, or an investment banker.

Two key players from the Dutch corporate finance practice present a business case for the course Corporate Valuation. Both cases are centered on a transaction of a company. At what price can the company be acquired or sold? Teams of students perform a thorough financial analysis as well as a strategic analysis of the business. Each team develops its own valuation and buyout model in Excel. Negotiations conclude each business case.
