Hi everyone, first post here.

I'm currently a first-year BBA student and I'm in the process of self-studying a Corporate Finance course and am planning on tackling a Valuations course in a couple months.

The corporate finance course is posted online for free by a professor at NYU Stern, I bought his book and have his lecture notes/problem sets as well. I'm about half way through the book. As for the Valuations course, I'll hopefully be able to find something similar.

What I'm really wondering is if this will appeal to employers. I've been really working to actually understand the material because I want to know the information instead of just "showing off." I also might pursue a Master's in Law instead of an MBA, so it may be better to study now than never. Is it worth the extra time (about 4-6 hours a week) to do this as a way to set myself apart from the competition?

Many thanks,
rchoi54

    No, you are far better off with a self-study excel/modelling prep course. If you were really ambitious, you would take the valuation course in the MBA school, get graded for it like a man!

    jakes.

    The difference between successful people and others is largely a habit - a controlled habit of doing every task better, faster and more efficiently.

    Differing opinion: Just do 'em. Learning them now will save you some trouble when you're prepping for your technicals next year/the year after.

    No. He will forget it by then
