The objective of this course is to make students familiar with the standard techniques of corporate valuation. Students will learn how to implement valuations using spreadsheet software, how to asses important investment decisions, and how to relate valuation and strategy.
The grade will be determined according to the following scheme: Assignments (incl. cases) (40%);  Written exam (60%).

Specifics about the assignments will be announced in the first lecture. The minimum required grade in the written exam necessary for passing the course is 5.0.

Case study grades, or exam grades from previous years, are not transferable to the current year. Assignment grades continue to count with the above weights if students take the resit, i.e., the resit exam counts exactly the same towards the final grade, as does the regular final exam.
