    Smile Financial Analysis Course

    Does anyone know of a course in HK that teaches the basics of financial valuation of a company? No longer than 4 days. Thanks!

    Get the book "Valuation" by McKinsey

    To be brutal a four day course is pretty meaningless. You first need to be able to read and understand financial accounts first. Fresh graduates in i-Banks tend to have a one to two month training course on a full time basis in order to get them started and after then they are closely supervised.
