Learning outcomes

The course makes students able to develop basic knowledge about the theory of firm evaluation. The theory of value creation within firms is presented as a branch of management which enhances student’s skills learnt in different courses related to firm’s management and growth processes. In particular, Strategic management, Organization Theory, Accounting and Financial statements understanding and analyzing on one side and, on the other, the ability in national and international financial market data analysis as well as in basic financial mathematic analysis are the milestones needed in order to correctly use the broad range of economic value’s measurement methods, which differ according to measurement objectives and context.


The course is organized in seventeen lessons which will take two hours each. At the end of each lesson the teachers will communicate the fundamental textbook’s chapter and paragraphs to be read for the following week, which will constitute also the base both for classroom open discussions and exercises.

Assessment methods and criteria

The exam is in written form both for attending and for non-attending students. Students are also required to pass an oral exam that is complementary to the written test.
