    Principles of Valuation: Time Value of Money
    University of Michigan
    Part of a 5-course series, the Introduction to Finance: Valuation and Investing Specialization
    We will introduce the time value of money (TVM) framework in a carefully structured way, using relatively simple applications at first and quickly moving to more advance ones.

We will wrap up the course with an exposure to the determination of cash flows using accounting principles. The main focus in this building block will be on individual/personal decisions because of two reasons: (a) we learn when we see value to us as individuals and (b) the beauty of finance is that the building blocks of finance are applicable to any decision, personal or corporate. The course will last six weeks with time included for assimilation and two final exams.

    Principles of Valuation: Risk and Return
    University of Michigan
    Part of a 5-course series, the Introduction to Finance: Valuation and Investing Specialization
    This second course in the specialization will last six weeks and will focus on the second main building block of financial analysis and valuation: risk.

This time will be well spent because these concepts and tools are also commonly used in many applications in the real world. The foundational idea of diversification will then be used to develop a framework for evaluating risk and establishing a relationship between risk and return. Apart from developing a keen appreciation of risk for making thoughtful decisions in an institutional context, this course will contain a lot of material and examples that will enable the learner to make smart personal investing decisions.
