The workshop is organized by one of the leading professor of Finance who will provide powerful insights in the world of valuation. The training will also open the floor for extensive networking and knowledge sharing.

Participants should be able, at the end of the extensive workshop, to apply all valuation methods standardly applied (e.g. discounted cash flow methods, comparable methods).


The objective of the seminar is to provide the fundamentals of each approach to valuation, together with limitations and caveats on the use of each, as well as extended examples of the application of each. At the end of the seminar, participants should be able to –

  • Value any kind of firm in any market, using discounted cash flow models (small and large, private and public)
  • Value a firm using multiples and comparable firms,
  • Analyze and critique the use of multiples in valuation,
  • Value “problem” firms, such as financially troubled firms and start up firms,
  • Estimate the effect on value of a restructuring a firm.

The workshop includes workshop materials & presentations, refreshment breaks & lunch.
