Financial Management: Investment Appraisal and Business Valuations – EY Academy of Business

Financial Management: Investment Appraisal and Business Valuations

The training course is part of the series “Finance in Business – Case study workshops for Managers in Business – Modularised Programme“.

How do you assess whether an investment project is worth the while? And how do you choose between projects that seem to give the same future cash flows? Having taken all factors involved, does the chosen project finally add value to the firm? And what exactly is Value?

Is the Cost of Capital of a business calculable? And is it useful in Financial Management?

How are financial instruments, such as shares and bonds, valued in the financial markets? And is there a difference between Pricing and Valuation?

Can simple discounting be used to compute the value of a business entity?

Key features of this course:

  • This is an intensive, interactive workshop based on case studies
  • Zero prior knowledge of finance is required. What seemed impossible to comprehend will now appear easy and obvious

This workshop is addressed to participants without formal education in finance, who, as part of their work duties, are required to exhibit an understanding of investment evaluation and valuation of financial instruments.

 

This workshop is especially recommended to:

  • Managers of finance or non-finance functions
  • Internal and External Auditors
