​What you will learn

The course will enable you to understand the notion of value and the relationship between business transactions and value. You’ll be able to identify some situations that could impact value, including qualitative factors and market/industry developments.

You’ll assist clients with the preparation stage of undertaking a business transaction, including corporate improvements to enhance value and “right time to sell” considerations.

You’ll be able to identify the key aspects of the negotiation and due diligence processes, as well as the relationship to value.

This program was very challenging and the information contained was valuable to me in my practice. I plan to keep my journal nearby as a reference when required. This is a very valuable program for anyone in private practice.
