- 12 weeks
- 3.00 credits
- Prerequisite(s): BUKD-F741
The course introduces and applies the concepts of value investing, an investment style popularized by Benjamin Graham and Warren Buffett. The first half of the course is dedicated to understanding value investing principles through real-world case studies that highlight challenges inherent in valuation and investing. During the second half to the course, students will choose an investment, research the underlying company, produce a financial forecast, and build an investment thesis. Students will then present and defend their investment proposal to an Advisory Board of investment professionals. Investment ideas that are approved by the board are then purchased in a student-led, $2 million fund held at the IU Foundation.
