Value Investing (Online): Making Intelligent Investment Decisions, organized and imparted by the prestigious Columbia Business School, is a two-month online program that teaches one of the most successful investment strategies ever developed. Legendary investors like Warren Buffett and Mario Gabelli have been guided by the Value Investing principles during their entire careers. It’s an investment approach that helps investors identify, research, and buy securities priced well below their true market value.

Upon completion of this course, you will find answers to the questions “Does diversification create value?”, “How do I factor in economies of scale, first mover advantage, and barriers to entry?”, “When does the value investor know when to buy?”, or “When does growth create value?”.

Thanks to its summary, you will learn to apply the value investing principles to make smart, rational investment decisions; how to think independently about investment opportunities without simply following the market; to execute a method for making investments by exploiting available data; among other abilities.

At the end, you will earn one day towards a Certificate with select alumni and tuition benefits.
