"By gaining a comprehensive understanding of financial analysis and valuation, executives and other professionals will be able to better assess the financial implications of investments and other business activities and make decisions that create greater value."
–  The program's Faculty Director Doron Nissim, Professor of Accounting & Finance at Columbia Business School

In this video, Professor Doron Nissim explains how the program helps executives understand the financial consequences of business decisions in their organization.

Creating value is the central task for any executive. To generate value, managers need to be able to assess the financial impact of their decisions, which in turn requires an understanding of financial analysis techniques and valuation methods. Financial Analysis and Valuation for Strategic Decision Making will help you evaluate the financial consequences of business decisions and how to value companies, businesses, and projects.

Please note that this program requires a basic understanding of the following:

  • Financial statements, including the balance sheet, income statement, and cash flow statement
  • How accrual accounting differs from cash accounting, including revenue recognition (realization principle), expense recognition (matching principle), and the basic principles of asset and liability recognition and measurement
  • Time value of money and present value calculations

These concepts, above, are covered in Columbia Business School Executive Education program Finance and Accounting for the Non-financial Executive. Participants will receive pre-course material that covers these concepts.
