What Our Students Say

Pablo Mussio
Excelent course!
This course was very useful for me. Thank you!
Dans Jurcāns
The hard part of business valuation modeling
This course provides a deeper grounding than Part I in comparable company and transaction aspects (if you haven't bought the Full Immersion version and thus don't have a Capital IQ trial, prepare for some manual work!) using real-world companies and their financials. Also present is a deeper dive into modelling a merger between two companies (which would fill a standalone course by itself. It is more in-depth all-around than Part I, but just as useful.
