The objective of the course is to present a disciplined, valuation based process for security analysis. The course will focus on melding theory and practice using examples across industries and geographies. Investing is as much art as it is science, and therefore, particular attention will be paid to both quantitative and qualitative aspects- including financial statement analysis, valuation methodologies, and competitive strategy.
A Darden Independent Study elective includes either case development or a research project to be conducted by an individual student under the direction of a faculty member. Students should secure the agreement of a resident faculty member to supervise their independent study and assign the final grade that is to be based to a significant degree on written evidence of the individual student's accomplishment.
