Mergers and Acquisitions
What You Can Expect
Improving Your Organization's Performance
In today’s slower-growth global economy, more companies are relying on mergers and acquisitions as an engine for driving growth. Completing a successful merger or acquisition isn’t the job of one person, however—it’s a big project that involves managing major teams across the organization.
To that end, Mergers and Acquisitions: Strategy, Execution, and Post-Merger Management provides a cross-functional view of the M&A process, from start to finish and beyond. Developed by core Harvard Business School faculty who are preeminent authorities on valuation, negotiation, strategy, and finance, this new program delivers the frameworks and rounded toolkit you need to maximize the value of every deal.
Taking Your Skills to the Next Level
Whether your company is operating in the public or private sector, you must have the skills to identify the right targets, perform business valuations and due diligence, close the best deal, and integrate new employees efficiently. In this highly interactive program, you will:
Expand your M&A perspective—from applying target identification strategies and company synergy analyses to closing the optimum deal and managing post-merger integration.
Map out the negotiation landscape—from identifying the parties and potential competitors for the target to choosing the right strategies and tactics for closing the transaction.
Structure deals that unlock value—from "looking ahead and reasoning back" to crafting successful transactions that deliver more value to your company and its shareholders.
