The module provides both a broad and intensive overview of mergers and acquisitions, buyouts and corporate restructuring. Students will study the motivations, methods, benefits and pitfalls behind M&A economic activity, and as well, appreciate the role of the many parties involved in implementing and effecting these transactions. Although the lectures and cases will often focus on the financial aspects of these transactions (including deal design), students will also consider the various related legal, strategic, organizational and general management issues, as these in fact drive the financial analysis and ultimate fate of the transaction.
