This study seeks to assess the effect of Balanced Scorecard (BSC) on firm value based on evidence from quoted manufacturing companies in Nigeria. Secondary data constitute the main source of data collection. These data were obtained from annual reports of companies quoted on the Nigerian Stock Exchange from the year 2011 to 2015. Research tools such as descriptive statistics and multiple Square Regression analysis were used to establish the impact of Financial, Business process, Customer and Learning and growth perspectives on Firm value. The findings from the analysis have shown that firms with low business process perform significantly better and are valued higher than those firms with high business process. Thus the study encourage firms to implement Balance Score Card (BSC) since the adoption of merely one or two BSC attribute has proved to improve the organisational value.
