Discover how you unlock value in volatile markets
Worldwide markets conditions in recent years have been characterized by increasing volatility, caused by either financial markets instability and/or political and economic uncertainty. Under these unstable conditions, modern organizations must react in an agile way to a rapidly changing environment.

Market volatility harbours risk, and opportunities. Traditional valuation techniques, such as the Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) analysis, by their very nature, do not properly capture the value implication of the new opportunities brought forward by changing economic conditions. This leads to substantial misevaluation of assets and investment projects.

“Recognize value propositions that you didn’t identify before, while preventing to go overboard and invest too much.”

Paolo Fulghieri, Professor of Finance University of North Carolina, USA

The program integrates the traditional DCF approach with decision tree analysis and option pricing techniques to develop valuation tools that are more reliable for assessing value drivers under great economic and technological uncertainty. Key concepts of decision risk analysis will be applied to a variety of problems in the context valuation of investment projects with and without strategic risk. The program will develop both the necessary theoretical tools and the analytical skills, with a problem-solving emphasis.

The methodology developed in the program can be successfully applied to a great number of business situations, ranging from capital budgeting to valuation of acquisition targets in M&A and Private Equity, as well as the valuation of Intellectual Property.
