BUSINESS VALUATION WORKSHOP by Valuation Guru Prof. Aswath Damodaran

IFMR Students attended a one day workshop on Business Valuation by renowned valuation guru Mr. Aswath Damodaran, a Professor of Finance at the Stern School of Business at New York University, where he teaches corporate finance and equity valuation. The event was organized by TVS Capital Funds Limited on 11th Jan 2014 and was attended by students of various B Schools and members of CA Society. The workshop focused on Valuation Techniques, misconceptions and loose ends of valuation. The attendees were all enriched by the approach taken by Mr. Damodaran while valuing a company. “Valuation is not an art, it is not Science, it is a craft which betters itself as you do it again and again” he said. While discussing the nuances of Valuation he illustrated valuation of two companies done by him and explained the assumptions he took and the rationales behind those assumptions. Later during Q&A; Mr. Damodaran answered many interesting questions pertaining to the topic, raised by the audience and summed up an informative evening.

Samarthan – The Social Service Club of IFMR hosted the sixth edition of Lakshmi Bal Mahotsav on January 5th, 2014, Sunday at its premises. The event is conducted every year in remembrance of our beloved senior, Ms. Lakshmi Iyer – student of Batch-9. Around 150 children were invited from three different orphanages to give them a day of joy and happiness. Our students left no stone unturned to ensure that the event served its purpose!

The day began with a formal inauguration ceremony; our Dean, Prof. G. Balasubramanian lighted the lamp and one of our students rendered a prayer song to give us a good start.

The events for the day included a Magic Show, Quiz Show and many fun games. Children were encouraged to participate in all the games and win gifts. We had also arranged for stalls like chocolate fountain, cotton candy, popcorn, tattooing, mehendi and balloon shooting that turned on the Carnival mode of our B-School!!

Our students also served breakfast, lunch and snacks to every child who attended the event.

Each child was gifted with a school bag, lunch bag, pen, pencil, eraser, sharpener, scale, crayons set and sketch set. Apart from this, one of our students sponsored story books to all the three orphanages, which could be set up as a mini library at their respective places. The children were no less energetic and showcased their talents by giving us many dance performances.

By making small marks here and there, the students of IFMR are learning to make an impact on the society and as future managers, they are sure to strive for the betterment of the society!!

Let's join together and make the world a better place to live in!!!

  • Good going :smiley:. 07 Jan '14.

First Sunday of the year, spent by hosting around 135 underprivileged kids from 3 homes as part of Lakshmi Bal Mahotsav organized by IFMR's Samarthan team in the campus.

5 kids were assigned to each of one of us and we were assigned the task of taking to various games,activities, food stalls and movie (all of them coordinated by students).This was followed up by magic show and distribution of bags and stationary.In addition, lunch arrangements were made where students served the kids.

All this was preceded with massive preparations for last 2-3 days which turned the b-school to a festive mode with wonderful posters, balloons and decorations, apart from the operational arrangements which had to be taken care of.

Felt happy that the hard work of all the folks paid off Adding to that, the kind of affection exhibited by the kids was truly amazing

Again proved the well thought theory, any kid ultimately needs our love and time.
