Superior understanding of valuation allows you to maximise the potential of a company, increase portfolio returns, improve project selections and understand funding alternatives.

Real-life valuations are increasingly complex. Professor Christopher Hennessy explores how to value companies in a variety of contexts, undertaking valuation deconstructions and understanding all the inputs that are involved.

A thorough understanding of the subject enables you to drive investment decisions and lead the restructuring, M&A, and financing challenges and opportunities that your organisation faces. Increasingly, it is also a factor in marketing strategy and operations management.
