To help organisations understand and structure winning deals, our interactive Mergers and Acquisitions Programme at Nanyang Business School, Singapore aims to provide participants a practical, end-to-end understanding of the whole merger and acquisition (M&A) value chain.
Through a series of local and international case studies and small group discussions, you will explore the reasons and motivations for M&A. You will also examine the various strategic considerations including business plans, valuation, deal structuring, financing, negotiation and implementation issues associated with M&A. Post-merger integration and cross-border acquisitions will also be discussed.
|Understand the strategic considerations and issues involved||Learn to structure, negotiate and implement winning deals||Increase shareholder value through skillfully managed M&A|
At the end of the programme, you will gain an understanding of:
- The role of M&A as a legitimate activity in any entity’s corporate strategy and growth policy.
