New OnDemand Cost of Capital Course Released

Jan 28, 2014

The American Society of Appraisers announces the release of a new OnDemand course titled Cost of Capital.

Estimating cost of capital is one of the most important considerations for business valuation, capital budgeting, feasibility studies and corporate finance decisions. It is also one of the most difficult procedures to assess and perform.

Roger J. Grabowski, FASA presents an up-to-date look at the cost of capital. This course is designed around Grabowski's publication, The Cost of Capital, 4th edition published in 2010 with co-author Shannon P. Pratt, FASA. Certain topics and areas are expanded upon in this course since updated material has been gathered since publishing.

In this new OnDemand version, Cost of Capital will review and explore cost of capital estimation theories and how they apply to current practices in valuation, capital budgeting and expected investment returns forecasting, as well as the estimating models currently in use and data inputs available.

The course is a perfect resource for business valuers, CPAs or corporate treasurers seeking a greater understanding on the basic tools to use when estimating or reviewing cost of capital. It is also a valuable reference tool for attorneys, investment bankers and CFO’s.

ASA’s new OnDemand format allows busy on-the-go professionals to conveniently access individual course modules from their computer, view presentations and take practice quizzes and exam—at their pace, in the convenience of their home, office or other location—saving on out-of-office and travel-related expenses.
