Mergers and Acquisitions

Best Practices in Strategic M&A

The Mergers and Acquisitions program gives you a structured understanding of the M&A process and equips you with the tools and skills you need for succeeding in each phase of the process.

The program focuses on M&A as a means to implement company strategy and deepens participants’ understanding of different phases of the process from the M&A strategy and deal phase to post-merger integration and leading change.

The objective of the program is to add significantly to your ability to perform and contribute when participating in any phase of the M&A process, and to provide you with learning on knowledge and best practices that you can bring to your organization.

This is a joint program with the University of Chicago Booth School of Business – one of the top business schools in the USA (currently ranked equal #1 with Harvard Business School by U.S. News & World Report).

“There are clear best practices in M&A that separate high-performing firms that create value from those that take missteps and destroy value – knowing these best practices gives you a clear advantage,” says Stephen Morrissette, Adjunct Associate Professor of Strategic Management, the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
