Learning outcomes

The course starts from the assumption that the theme of business valuations summarizes the skills already acquired by students in their course of study, regarding operating conditions, growth and development of companies and groups. Indeed, business valuation is a process which requires skills pertaining to strategic management, organizational theories, the ability to read and analyze financial statements, as well as the capability in collecting and analyzing national and international, real and financial market data. Given that, the course aims at describing the scope of business valuation, value drivers, and a number of valuation methods and techniques. With reference to the latter, the course intends to provide students with the necessary competency to identify proper methodologies to be used in different circumstances and be able to know how to properly apply them. Therefore, at the end of the course, the student must demonstrate how to identify the appropriate methods for determining economic value and be able to apply them by selecting and quantifying the necessary inputs for the valuation formulas.
