Learning outcomes

The objective of this course is to develop participants’ knowledge about business evaluation. The theory of value creation within firms is presented as a branch of management which enhances skills already acquired by students in undergraduate and graduate courses related to firm management and growth paths. Indeed, business evaluation is a process which requires skills pertaining to strategic management, organizational theories, financial accounting, as well as the capability in collecting and analyzing national and international financial market data.
Given such premise, the course aims at describing the scope and role of business evaluation, the value drivers, and a number of evaluation methods and techniques. With reference to the latter, the course intends to provide students with the necessary competency to identify proper methodologies to be applied in different circumstances.
In order to encourage students’ learning ability, the subjects proposed during the course are developed by means of both theoretical lessons and applications, as well as discussions of case studies based on real situations.
