Background

This training goes beyond the introduction level and theoretical concepts as it’s designed with ready-to-use tools and practices for industry professionals. Every session is crafted and taught by our M&A veterans who share their insights and know-how gained through years of real-world practice.


What to expect

The International Mergers & Acquisitions Expert (IM&A) program dives deep into the entire M&A process – from strategy and valuation to execution and post merger integration (PMI).

Whether managing or advising a merger or acquisition for your company or assisting your clients, we will equip you with the tools and knowledge you need to skip the common pitfalls and succeed.

In the self-paced online course, you’ll take your skills to the next level by practicing:

  • Expanding your M&A perspective: Hone new target identification strategies and advanced synergy analyses to close the best deals and navigate common post-merger integration pitfalls.
  • Mapping out the negotiation landscape: Identifying the true stakeholders and likely competitors for the target ahead of time, so you’re ready with the right strategies and tactics for closing the transaction without trouble.
  • Improving your Foresight: By “looking ahead and reasoning back,” you’ll practice implementing exceptional value analysis and comprehensive due diligence so you can lead your team into unlocking the most lucrative merger and acquisition opportunities


Content

This cross-disciplinary curriculum provides a holistic view of the M&A process – from strategy and valuation to execution and post-merger integration management.

You will delve into the challenges and opportunities presented by new technology and learn all the terminology and best practices for cross-border deals, corporate inversions, earn-outs, spin-offs, restructurings, corporate governance and more opportunities. Different strategic approaches for private and public companies will also be examined.

The IM&A program is structured in four modules based on IMAA IM&A Frameword and Body of Knowledge for Mergers & Acquisitions:
• Essentials of M&A
• Due Diligence
• Valuation
• Post Merger Integration (PMI)


Who should attend

While you will meet an international mix of participants from various industries, the IM&A program is tailored to the needs of mid-management to senior executives in the C-Suite, directors of public and private companies, board leaders, and heads of strategy and corporate development. Advisers, investment bankers, transactional lawyers, and private equity investors also find this course increasingly helpful.
