Business & Project Valuation
In our business valuation course, you’ll learn how to value a company using the DCF and multiples approach, and will learn to evaluate the financial feasibility of a new project.
We’ll build a complete, working discounted cash flow (DCF) model in Excel from scratch, using a fictional private company. Our course will teach you how to calculate the cost of equity, WACC, and levered/unlevered beta.
With this knowledge, we’ll calculate the discounted free cash flow and the terminal value. From there, we’ll learn how to value a company using the multiples approach. We top off the course be learning how to analyze the financial viability of a new project using methods such as IRR, ROE, NPV, and break even.
At completion, you’ll know how to value any company and analyze the financial viability of a project.
Some key things you’ll learn:
- Calculate the weighted average cost of capital (WACC)
- Calculate the cost of equity using the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM)
- Determine the terminal value of a cash flow stream
- Value a company using the DCF and multiples approach
- Use IRR, ROE, and NPV to analyze a project
