This course is intended to provide you with the tools to carry out a business valuation using residual income valuation techniques.
We study the actual financial statements of publicly-traded companies in the assignments that we discuss in class. The course combines accounting principles and investment principles to answer the question: How do I account for value so that I can challenge stock prices with some confidence?
This course can be taken as part of the Master in accounting and auditing.
