Best Practices in Strategic M&A

The Mergers and Acquisitions program approaches M&A from a strategic, financial and change leadership perspective. The program focuses on M&A as a tactic to implement company strategy and deepens participants’ understanding of different phases of the M&A process, from M&A strategy and the deal-phase process to post-merger integration and leading change.

This unique program brings together the strengths of two world-class business schools – Chicago Booth’s world-class competence in finance and strategy and Aalto University’s recognized expertize in leadership and post-merger integration. The certificate will be provided by both schools.
