Your Course of Study
When your company is faced with major competitive or industry challenges, you need to be able to implement financial strategies that maximize the value of your company and capture that value for shareholders. In the HBS Executive Education program Corporate Restructuring, Mergers, and Acquisitions, you will examine a range of restructuring options, including:
- Corporate bankruptcy reorganization
- Debt restructuring
- Leveraged buyouts and recapitalizations
- Cost-cutting and corporate downsizing programs
- Employee layoffs
- Mergers and acquisitions
- Corporate spin-offs
- Divestitures and stock tracking
In a comprehensive leadership development experience that includes faculty lectures, case studies, hands-on exercises, and group discussions, you will examine some of the most innovative and controversial restructurings of the past decade, and deepen your understanding of successful financial strategies.
Designed to provide hands-on experience, the program will help you analyze your company's current situation and design a financial restructuring program that best addresses key issues. You will also discover how to use specific financial analysis tools to identify restructuring opportunities and potential gains. Your new skill set extends to the bargaining table, as you learn how to employ the best negotiating strategies and tactics with creditors, employees, suppliers, shareholders, and other corporate stakeholders.
"Having gone through a major merger myself, I wanted to prepare better for our next acquisition. The program's main strength is in balancing theory and practice. In particular, I found the complex cases that involved debt, staffing restructuring, and valuations most useful. I definitely expanded my toolkit for the future—and built a stronger foundation for moving the company forward."
