This is a class about valuation, not about instruments, markets or investing. It is about valuing small businesses and big ones, simple businesses and complex ones, young firms and those in distress. It is about valuation in all its many forms and I hope that by the end of this class, you can value just about anything that has a value and price just about everything else.
