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.
We recommend first taking our Financial Statement Analysis and Financial Modeling courses which are a great complement to this course.
Format: 3-6 minute videos, quizzes, and a final exam
Field of study: Finance
Prerequisites: You should have an intermediate knowledge of Excel (e.g. SUM, SUMIFS, VLOOKUP, etc.). If you’re not comfortable with Excel, we recommend taking our Microsoft Excel Bootcamp.
