Next, you will begin to apply this accounting knowledge to analyze financial statements and theorize about the financial outcomes of management decisions. With this knowledge, you will start to see how to use financial measures to assess management's financial success (or failure).
Your new financial knowledge will earn you a place on the management team as a well-rounded manager who considers management decisions in a financial framework.

What Our Students Say:
"I had learned a theoretical approach before, but the Valuation Master Class let me try everything practically under the guidance of experienced mentors. I would recommend the Valuation Master Class for those who have a basic knowledge of accounting and equity but have never done in-depth valuation before."
"Initially it took me time to understand the linking of formulas in the Value Model and its impact on the final calculation.
But thanks to online Wikipedia-style teaching manual for the class and help from Dr. Andrew Stotz and the team I managed to understand the model much better and now find it easier as well as useful to value companies.
The learning has helped me to enhance my finance skills, gain a better understanding of a company’s financial statements, analyze past performance trends, and spot upcoming which could be expected to impact future performance.
The course has helped me to grow further and is well worth the price.
While completing the first module, I learned to work the model effectively to get the result. The various checks and balances in the model helped me to understand if my inputs make sense relative to past performance trends. Abnormal assumptions show up automatically in ValueModel.
During the second module, I progressed from understanding the model and its workings to studying the annual reports I was valuing. From this, I started analyzing revenue breakdowns, the impact of quarterly performance, and upcoming events with deeper reasoning.
I would recommend this course to my colleagues and other finance professionals. The Valuation Master Class could help them grow in their careers and contribute more effectively to their current jobs.
I am looking forward to completing all modules of the class to become a Valuation Master. This credential will support me in achieving my dream of becoming an equity analyst. Although it will not be easy, it would be worth the hard work and effort required to achieve the credential."
"When I started the Valuation Master Class I felt a bit overwhelmed with the ValueModel. However, after watching videos in the class of Andrew using the model to value companies, it became much easier.
Just using Value Model to value my first two companies taught me how to set reasonable assumptions and became more confident in calculating discount rates since I am now using research to back it up.
This course will be very helpful for my future career as I’m aiming to be an investment banker. I feel it’s worth every single dollar I paid. I see studying this course as I’m investing in myself.
After finishing the first module, I have set ‘becoming a valuation expert’ as my new goal in 2017."
"I learned a whole lot of new things to complement my studies at university! I now know how to analyze everything independently. In our university projects, we normally work as a group, so I only got to work on the part of the process, and the model did not go into nearly the same amount of detail.
I would recommend all students who are passionate about finance to take this Valuation Master Class. I think it would add an edge of competitiveness to your skill set before graduation and when you start looking for work. It’s a fantastic opportunity for students to learn before working in the real world."
"Before I entered this course, valuation seemed like a foreign land to me, exciting but full of mystery. This course brought light to valuation which has just intensified my excitement for the course.
Thanks to the effective team support from A. Stotz Investment Research, I could use the Value Model with ease and comfort."
Lim Lee Bin (Singapore)
"I have analyzed companies in the past and completed valuations, but the Valuation Master Class taught me how to avoid mistakes that I didn’t even realize I was making. I also learned how to be more realistic while valuing a company.
I undertook company valuation for the CFA Institute Research competition and had no one to guide me while I was first making mistakes. The Valuation Master Class helped me overcome my errors and has made me more confident in the valuation process."
