The M&A course is a case-based course which will investigate the advantages and pitfalls of corporate transactions and the process followed for successful deals.

As a result of taking this course, the student will better understand how deals materialize and create value for the shareholders, better understand the process followed in completing the transaction, will have negotiated an actual deal in class, and will appreciate the fact that once a transaction is signed, the hard work of making it successful will have just begun.
