Summary of Real Options for Analysts Course

Real Options has become a key management tool for many of today's businesses. It is accurate method of estimating the value of corporate investments, and it can be effectively utilised in situations where management has flexibility in large capital budget decisions with high uncertainties.

Traditional valuation methods are incapable of incorporating future risks and management flexibilities into the analysis. As a result, optimal decisions are often disregarded because of flawed decision analysis. In other words, every time you made a capital budget decision, you could be leaving money on the table.

This is a 2-day hands-on computer-based course using the Real Options Super Lattice Solver (SLS) software, covering topics of business applications of real options, various option valuation techniques, framing and solving real options problems.
