Mergers and Acquisitions
4 credit hours
Mergers, acquisitions and other types of restructurings have a dramatic impact on most corporations. Managers will -- either directly or indirectly -- face the challenges brought on by these changes in corporate structure. Furthermore, M&A provides an opportunity for gaining insight into key business issues. This course overviews the strategic, financial and organizational aspects of merger-related challenges, while providing depth in the area of valuation. The readings, cases, projects and lectures will integrate theory and practice from your finance, strategy, accounting, economics, statistics, and management courses.
