M&A Training Course
The Core Mergers and Acquisitions Skills programme (M&A training course) is a three day programme that teaches all the commercial and technical skills you will need to confidently lead or support a successful M&A transaction. The core is available in both webinar and face to face formats.
Guided by our expert tutors you move through the M&A process from strategy and deal origination to valuation, due diligence, deal structuring, contract negotiation. and post-merger integration.
The course is designed for established executives in the flow of their careers with a strong emphasis on the practical rather than the theoretical. Each section of the course provides tools and approaches that you can be taken back to your company and put straight into action.
Our tutors have hands-on experience gained as part of management teams making successful acquisitions and the course is rich with case studies and real-world examples based on their practical mergers and acquisitions experience.
This course is independently accredited by the Continuing Professional Development Association to provide hours or points that can be applied to the CPD requirements of professional bodies.
