Big 4 valuation is mostly post transaction and for financial reporting purposes. Think purchase price allocation and goodwill impairment. Very technical work and will probably spend most of your time modeling in excel. Probably not really where you want to be if you’re interested in M&A but a great stepping stone to break in.
