The Corporate Finance School comprises two modules, which together offer delegates a comprehensive and practical guide to the international sale and purchase of companies from a strategic, legal, commercial and financial viewpoint.
The School aims to give participants a thorough knowledge and understanding of the wide variety of skills that those involved in cross border acquisitions must possess – including the ability to read and understand financial information, as well as juggle a diverse range of commercial and legal issues from an international viewpoint.
As well as this, the School gives delegates the opportunity to look in detail at a closely related area to M&A, namely Private Equity or Joint Ventures & Strategic Alliances (depending on course location).
The School is designed to be highly practical and features hands-on workshop sessions and case studies.
