Prof. Aswath Damodaran (NYU Stern School of Business) “Corporate Finance and Valuation”

CERGE-EI's Applied Economics Discovery Hub is excited to host a public lecture by Professor Aswath Damodaran from the New York University Stern School of Business, organized by Prague Wall Street Club. Prof. Damodaran will share with us his views on Corporate Finance and Valuation.

“In a science, if you get the inputs right, you should get the output right. The laws of physics and mathematics are universal and there are no exceptions. Valuation is not a science. In an art, there are elements that can be taught but there is also a magic that you either have or you do not. The essence of an art is that you are either a great artist or you are not. Valuation is not an art. A craft is a skill that you learn by doing. The more you do it, the better you get at it. Valuation is a craft.”
