I took the program as I wanted to fill a gap in my skill set on the way to becoming a CFO. The live virtual classroom format was very easy and allowed for flexibility and a more diverse group of classmates. The program was thorough, and the presenters provided comprehensive information and resources. There was enough time for Q&A and interaction. The e-book library is also a great resource.

Before my CPMI certification, I participated in several integration efforts; however, the process didn’t feel very well organized, and I participated without fully understanding the drivers of the acquisition.  I felt like a better structure or roadmap had to exist to merge two companies more efficiently.  The CPMI training has equipped me with the framework to effectively implement an integration plan.  The instructors at IMAA are practitioners with real world experience who can relate to the variety of issues surrounding post-merger integration efforts.  This was a very worthwhile training that will add tremendous value to me as an executive and investor.

Knowing how critical integration is to the success of M&A and wanting to learn more, I embarked on a process to find a program that offered a wide selection of instructors with years of real-life experiences, a good selection of topics covered, and a professionally built portal for a virtual experience. IMAA was at the top of the list! The team was incredibly responsive during my selection process and helped make a decision to enroll a no brainer. The actual classes were even better than I anticipated. The instructors were able to offer real world examples and brought topics to life. The collaborative set up of learning through a case study offered an opportunity for the classmates to interact, debate, and build a strong integration process together. I highly recommend this program to anyone interested in learning more about the Integration part of M&A. You will learn a tremendous amount in the time together and meet others tackling similar challenges.

As someone who has worked in M&A but wanted to expand my knowledge in the M&A lifecycle, I looked at many organizations to take a Post Close Integration class. I landed with IMAA because I trusted their worldwide acclaim, their professional partners, and their world-renowned speakers. The virtual classroom was very beneficial for our class. We were spread across seven time zones, and we could collaborate from our homes or offices and meet many people from various backgrounds and geographies. We had several breakout sessions which did not take time to gather and allowed effective one-on-one times with each other. I would recommend this class to anyone who wants to gain a comprehensive understanding of the M&A lifecycle from world-leading experts in the field and through an organization highly sought after across the globe.
