Description

To stay relevant and profitable, companies need to constantly review their growth strategy and identify new market opportunities. Specialists who can do this work effectively are always in demand, so it's a valuable skillset to acquire. In this Build Project, you'll wear the hat of a Corporate Development Analyst and come up with a potential acquisition target (company) to analyze and present. Under the supervision of an experienced Build Fellow, you'll perform market research, financial analysis and build a dynamic valuation model in Excel. You'll become familiar with valuation methodologies like DCF, NPV and WACC. All this will happen in an environment that simulates the operations of a real Corporate Development team.
