Inhalt: This course establishes a link between the external valuation of companies (e.g., by investors and analysts), and the internal practices that top executives apply to manage a company in a value-based manner. It thereby demonstrates the link between the areas of accounting, corporate finance, and management control. The course covers the following topics (not exhaustive): • Essential theories and purposes of valuation using financial statements • Valuation methods (e.g., earnings, cash, or assets) • Analyses of profitability and risk • Financial forecasting and trend analyses • Diffusion of Value-based Management (VBM) • Empirical evidence on the antecedents and performance effects of VBM • Internal VBM-tools, selected fields of application, and stakeholder implications • Real-life valuation examples (selected topics with practice partners)
