To assist students, we will discuss various topics throughout the quarter: 1) analysis and valuation of stock; 2) insurance; 3) fundamentals of transfer pricing; 4) private equity and venture capital; and 5) private company valuation and transactions. Throughout the quarter, we will hear from individuals who will share real-world expertise and practical information to assist students as they plan for post-graduate career paths. Readings: Most readings will consist of articles and lecture notes/slides prepared for each topic. These materials will be posted on Canvas . It is the student’s responsibility to check Canvas and review the available materials, in addition to taking notes during lecture.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
