Make the right investment decisions

Investments are necessary to create value, however, they can impact the Balance Sheet negatively. Investing is all about weighing up risks. That’s why it is useful to have frameworks and methods to help you make informed decisions. This programme introduces concepts such as cash flow, net working capital, payback and net present value (NPV).

You will be able to better manage the net capital in your company and to assess the profitability of your investment projects with more accuracy. You will make informed decisions about all aspects of investment. And you will always maintain an equilibrium in the management of investment-linked risks.



If the regulations change, we will reconsider which format is best suited for this programme. You can rely on our agility and know-how to adapt your programme’s format to create the best solution. So, whether you learn with us on campus or online – or a hybrid of the two – you can be sure of a great experience.

    Only one in three M&A experts surveyed noticed a decrease of more than 20% in the number of deals in 2020. Furthermore, the average acquisition price across all deal categories remained more or less stable. Smaller transactions of less than €5 million did take a hit: there were fewer deals, and acquisition prices were lower. Moreover, the uncertain economic situation led to deals taking longer to conclude, and there was an increase in the use of deferred payment mechanisms. For 2021, the experts predict that the market will recover to its pre-coronavirus level, especially when it comes to private equity transactions. Those are the most important conclusions of the eight edition of the M&A Monitor.
