About the course

Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) form the most important capital market transactions. M&A require strong collaborations between experts working in management and strategy, and the experts mastering the legal aspects of the changes. Thus, M&A pose the highest requirements in the area of strategic and financial management as well as in human resources (during postmerger integration). M&A will often be supported and accompanied by specialized teams. Many of these are based in Frankfurt a.M. – the location of the M&A module of the Executive M.B.L-HSG. Experts will offer their insight from several perspectives, amended by discussion of best practices and case studies.
