Program overview

 

The Certificate in Financial Valuation The Certificate in Financial Valuation is designed for executives, high performers, and finance professionals who aim to acquire in-depth knowledge and practical skills in key areas of finance related to corporate valuation. The program focuses on cutting-edge tools and techniques to value corporate projects as well as various types of companies by analyzing both their business risk and the financial risk. It provides a thorough understanding of the risk and return of financial instruments, financial statement analysis, corporate financial policy, the cost of capital, and other topics related to financial valuation. The certificate relies on world-class teaching by outstanding HEC Paris faculty, including renowned researchers with executive-education experience and high-level investment bankers and consultants. 

The program is comprised of a 10-day module with regular courses, and the completion of a 2-day certificate project either in person or remotely. The certificate project gives participants the opportunity to apply the valuation tools learned during the module on a challenging individual project. The project is done under the supervision of an experienced, world-class HEC faculty tutor.

Learning methods & Evaluations

Learning methods:

Most courses in the CeFV are delivered by alternating between lectures, case studies, exercises, simulations, applications, group work, and in-class presentations. Most courses require preparation before class: reading case studies or articles, answering preparatory questions, or solving a pre-class assignment. In the certificate project part, each participant chooses a tutor (supervisor) from the HEC Paris faculty to work on a certificate project. The project gives participants the opportunity to specialize in a particular area of financial valuation by applying what they have learned during the certificate on an original individual project. In this process they capitalize on the input and guidance of faculty and field experts from the world of finance who act as tutors.

Evaluations:

Participants are evaluated along multiple dimensions: group work write-ups or presentations on projects or case studies, quizzes, in-class or take-home exercises, quizzes, multiple-choice questionnaires, final exams, post-class analyses, and class participation. The weights instructors choose among all these dimensions vary with each class.
