Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) are among the most dynamic, but also most difficult and error-prone strategic activities a company can undertake. Every business manager will most likely be involved or at least affected by a merger or takeover at some point in their career.

Future corporate executives need to have a holistic view of mergers. Thus the aim of this course is to give students a fundamental and solid guidance in planning and executing M&A. The individual sessions are structured along the typical merger process and participants will explore the topics of corporate strategy, due diligence, company valuation, financing, negotiation and post-merger integration.

Over the length of the course, students will build a solid basis through a combination of theory and practice. The seminar will involve case studies, valuation exercises, group work and real-life negotiation simulations.

This course will be of special interest to participants planning careers in strategy consulting and investment banking, as well as those who plan to work in corporate development or finance functions within industrial firms. Students expecting to hold jobs in general management will find the seminar helpful as well.
