Acerca del Curso

Hi and welcome to this course! Would you like to learn about the latest valuation methods that may help you to make better business decisions? Then 'Advanced Valuation and Strategy – M&A, Private Equity, and Venture Capital' by Erasmus University Rotterdam is the right course for you! This course is helpful for executives that need to value complete strategies and for all students interested in corporate finance and strategy. We present the latest tools and show you how to apply them! We will revolutionize your way of decision making, by extending static techniques from corporate finance with dynamic methods to quantify strategic thinking. Traditionally, we assess the attractiveness of an investment as a mature business, where future cash flows mainly result from past decisions. But, in an ever-changing world, strategic decisions determine the firm’s long-term success and market value. Yet managers often have to consider these long-term implications using intuition and experience alone, with little guidance from structured, quantitative analysis. Our treatment goes far beyond the use of standard valuation analysis. We introduce the expanded NPV, which brings together DCF, real options, and game theory. Thinking in terms of options, games, and adaptive strategies may help managers address strategic questions such as: How do you value a leveraged buyout? How can you value a high-tech venture with negative cash flows? When should you invest in new ventures in stages? How can you incorporate rival bidders in the analysis? The tools we provide can improve your decisions in business and in daily life. * Who is this class for? We hope that our course appeals to (graduate) students in finance, economics, and business, as well as to high-ranking professionals and a general audience. This course is particularly interesting for venture capitalists, private equity investors, investment bankers, CEOs, CFOs, and those who aspire these affiliations. We offer this MOOC at 3 levels: 1.Executive Summary: This 1-week module provides critical insights into the principles of corporate valuation and strategy. This is accessible for time-constrained executives and the general audience without any prior knowledge. 2. Student Level: This level involves an understanding of the technical details. This level requires basic knowledge of concepts in corporate finance, e.g., the time value of money, financial statement analysis, capital structure, and the relation between risk and returns. Learners of this level can skip week 1. 3. Honors Level (honors certificate): This level is challenging, engaging, and compelling to an intellectually rigorous student....

Boosts your up-to-date understanding of how strategy and valuation come together. It helped me better understand my PE clients' buy & build strategies from a growth option valuation perspective.

Demanding at times but overall one of the better courses that make you think before you have to answer. I also enjoyed the ability to do some extra work if you are into honorable certificate.

The course materials were very good and the course was very well structured. The content was very relevant and well shared, with multiple videos, relevant additional readings and practice exercises. This is a course I will for sure recommend.

There was, however, a discrepancy between material delivered and exam questions, i.e. learning material was not sufficient to answer many questions in the final quizzes. I found myself researching a lot and reading further to be able to answer quizzes. While this is great on the one hand, as one learns more and develops, on the other hand I am not sure this is exactly what should happen in this online setting.

It was surprising to see that the honors assignments were a lot easier than the regular assignments.

The course was interesting and enjoyable. The DCF section was relevant and the excel exercise was helpful for someone building a DCF. The Real Options and Game Theory sections felt more theoretical, and would have been helpful to see more real-life applications of these concepts, but were still interesting nonetheless. The professor gave clear explanations though would have been helpful to have slides on the content (as opposed to reading the transcript / subtitles and pausing the videos to take notes).

The course introduces the amalgamation of basic game theory concepts and real options to provide an alternative framework for evaluating strategic investment decisions in uncertain and high stake situations. It is an excellent basic course to get started with understanding this framework. While mastering this framework for practical application would ideally require a lot more effort and resources, this is a good first course to get started.

It is a great course to grasp the underlying idea of how to do advanced valuation of investments. Given its short length, it is great. I would have loved to see more underlying explanations as I know the concepts here are provided in a very simplified fashion, with underlying assumptions, math and statistics are significantly more complex to dominate and hence apply in real situations. Great course whatsoever, it will not disappoint you!

I felt that while this course is overall very helpful and well structured, it assumes pre-acquired knowledge about some things on part of the student. For example, in a quiz, there was a question about the winner's curse while this topic wasn't covered in any of the lectures. I could do well cause I have studied Strategic Management under my MBA curriculum. Overall, there's been a steep learning curve for me through this course.

Course is one of the most professionally but together ones I've participated in. Occasionally it is a bit superficial, but it is a very good refresher for certain concepts and it does teach you a few things you wouldn't expect.

Sometimes you have to look for answers as you feel like the things asked in quizes aren't mentioned in the course, but overall I am satisfied with it. I would've regretted not completing this course.

In general, it's an interesting course that combines DCF valuation with option valuation and game theory. However, each of the 3 topics should be a complex topic, but the course only touches the surface of these topics. This course should be named as an introduction to advanced topics in valuation and strategy. Overall, it's worthwhile learning and it can help you know some interesting areas in valuation.

An awesome course with really interesting (and useful) content, but not as robust and complete as it was supposed to be. A lot of times I was forced to go out and find out, by myself, some of the contents that were required but wasn't clearly (or not at all) said during classes. To the new entrants, you will enjoy, but do not underestimate the "advanced" label this course has on its name.

Loved the depth of the course, great explanation videos and sometimes challenging exercises which required some thinking!

Main point of feedback is that I would have preferred to spend some more time on understanding some of the formula. Usually a fundamental understanding helps me in applications and understanding its limitations as well.

Great content. I would suggest providing the slides with the information in the animations. It's very important for following class and further reference. Also, additional reference material would be helpful, as some questions on the test are not covered in the videos.

Great course! Has really good and deep content on financial analysis for M&A, PE and VC. However, there are flaws in some parts, as there is missing information about important topics (such as the APV method valuation) which is still asked for on the exams.

Good course with great insights into valuation, game theory, and corporate strategy. Certain explanations were lacking at some points, which had to be looked up online. However, they were included in the certificate tests.
