  1. COURS 1

    Principles of Valuation: Time Value of Money

    Session en cours : mars 27 — mai 15.
    Sous-titres
    English

    À propos du cours

    We will introduce the time value of money (TVM) framework in a carefully structured way, using relatively simple applications at first and quickly moving to more advance ones. We will then spend some time on developing an understanding of alternative decision criteria (NPV, IRR, Profitability, etc.) that are commonly used in the real world. We will wrap up the course with an exposure to the determination of cash flows using accounting principles. The main focus in this building block will be on individual/personal decisions because of two reasons: (a) we learn when we see value to us as individuals and (b) the beauty of finance is that the building blocks of finance are applicable to any decision, personal or corporate. The course will last six weeks with time included for assimilation and two final exams. This course is the first in a sequence of four courses, followed by a Capstone Project, that comprise a Specialization on Valuation & Investing.
  2. COURS 2

    Principles of Valuation: Risk and Return

    Session en cours : mars 27 — mai 15.
    Sous-titres
    English

    À propos du cours

    This second course in the specialization will last six weeks and will focus on the second main building block of financial analysis and valuation: risk. The notion of risk and statistics are intimately related and we will spend a fair amount of time on the development of some statistical concepts and tools, namely distribution theory and regression analysis. This time will be well spent because these concepts and tools are also commonly used in many applications in the real world. The foundational idea of diversification will then be used to develop a framework for evaluating risk and establishing a relationship between risk and return. Apart from developing a keen appreciation of risk for making thoughtful decisions in an institutional context, this course will contain a lot of material and examples that will enable the learner to make smart personal investing decisions. The course will again have time included for assimilation and two final exams. This course is the second in a sequence of four courses, followed by a Capstone Project that comprise a Specialization on Valuation & Investing.
