Oxford Chicago Valuation Programme


Why have the two leading business schools in finance joined forces to develop a programme on advanced valuation?

At the heart of high-level discussions about new investments, raising debt or equity capital, acquisitions, restructuring and disposals lies one critical component: valuation.

The valuation of a company, asset or investment is a vital factor in many decisions. These include selling off part of a family firm, privatising a national industry, raising finance for an infrastructure project or deciding where to invest a pension or private equity fund.

Common techniques (Comparables, DCF, IRR methods) can provide a guide to a figure, but are often imperfect when applied to real transactions.

The University of Oxford‘s Saïd Business School and the University of Chicago Booth School of Business have joined forces to launch this unique executive programme to teach, apply and discuss Corporate and Investment Valuation. The programme will combine and compare approaches from both sides of the Atlantic and go beyond the basic models to apply them to complex real life transactions.

We will discuss financing structures that effect corporate and investment valuation and provide a series of snapshots and solutions to the challenges presented by a complex cases such as IPO, LBO, Distress, Infrastructure and Growth Capital .

Core concepts will be delivered by leading professors from the top schools in finance. Example transactions will be presented by industry leaders who executed them. Panel discussions over dinner will provide an intimate opportunity to direct questions to a selection of the following finance leaders.
