Mastering Corporate Finance

Mergers and acquisitions rarely "add value". So what is the difference between those companies that consistently make deals work and those that do not? A clear sense of how deals are assessed by investors and a grasp of the key risks involved is essential for anyone working with markets.

Mastering Corporate Finance

Knowing how mergers and acquisitions can be used effectively and how to assess the risks involved generates real value for the business. A sense of the right deals and the correct form of funding will give you much greater clarity and insight on how to take the company forward with supportive, well-informed investors.

"Learning is not just knowing the answers. Learning is measured only by a growth experience. Learning is not finding out what other people already know, it is solving our own problems for our own purposes."
