BV202 Introduction to Business Valuation - Income Approach

  • Registration Closed

Tuesday, June 28, 2022 - Friday, July 1, 2022


This class will be taught virtually by an instructor over the course of three days with an online exam scheduled on the fourth day. Students will meet virtually online and are required to synchronously participate in a combination of lecture, discussion and classroom exercises via an online platform. The final exam is multiple choice and securely administered online and remotely proctored. Additional final exam instructions are provided closer to the live class. 

BV202 was designed to build upon the learning outcomes achieved in BV 201 by adding the income approach to the student's skill set/ toolbox. This course places heavy emphasis on the three key variables of a valuation (regardless of whether the valuation is concerning fair value for financial reporting, fair market value for litigation or tax-related valuations):

  • Benefit Streams;
  • Risks (i.e., discount rate); and
  • Growth.

Students will be provided with the core concepts necessary for them to immediately apply the income approach without regard to the specific standard of value or purpose for the valuation

ASA-accredited members (AM, ASA, FASA) who would like to attend this class will receive a 50% discount. This discount will be automatically applied at checkout.

Instructional Methods

Methods include lectures, discussions and individual/ group exercises and assignments.
