Creating Value through M&A

Making successful acquisitions

Mergers and acquisitions have become a part of today’s increasingly competitive and global economic environment. They can be important strategic tools for creating value. In this course, you will learn all the steps in the M&A process. Many of the crucial elements that can make or break a merger or acquisition will be identified, from selecting bona fide prospects to structuring the best deal. Also the integration will be discussed, which is in many cases a bottleneck that can make the whole merger fail. The many challenges of acquisitions and how to overcome them will be examined, based on best practice and participants’ own experiences.

During this course you will learn how to financially structure a deal, how to make it work and how to let different cultures blend into each other. It is a course that gives you an in-depth perspective about mergers and acquisitions from A to Z.

Planning ahead can be challenging these days. But you can rely on us to have the agility and know-how to adapt the format of your programme if we need to. So whether you learn with us on campus, online or a hybrid of the two – you can be sure of a great experience.
