This program would be a combination of 3 programs – AFSA (advanced), Equity Valuation (Advanced) & Applied Economics (Intermediate). Spread over 8 months, this is a guided step by step approach to help a candidate learn Detailed Financial Analysis

Course Brochure

Objective of the program

At the end of the program, the candidate should have an end to end understanding of the work an analyst does (both credit and equity analyst). The candidate should be able to pick a company, read its annual report threadbare, do a comprehensive financial statement analysis, understand the industry dynamics, and build a complete valuation model on this company, just like someone seasoned in the areas would do.

While a lot of this is taught in curriculums, most of what is taught does not get applied in real world. Our idea is to make the candidate ready for the real world. So we use live data, live companies, and handhold.

It gave me a sense of how equity valuation is done and how to build models. Also 3 different models targeting 3 different companies helped me appreciate the complexity of the subject. It helped me learn that each sector is different and the same approach cannot be followed for multiple sectors.
