Austin Cooke
Global M&A Director for Kentucky Fried Chicken at Yum! Group

I took this program to broaden my M&A skills, and to enhance my experience of other sector best practices. The course content is well put together, and the flexible approach to assignment style also allows you to tackle the set problems in your own way. There are lots of relevant, cross sector examples to refer to, and which reinforce the practicality of the content. The online platform provides flexibility and the opportunity to tackle the course content at your own pace, and based on other commitments.”

Sasan Hashemi
CEO of IntraBase

“The format of the onsite training developed by the Institute for Mergers, Acquisitions and Alliances enabled a combination of ‘on-point’-knowledge transfer through presentations and at the same time room to back the knowledge with real-world examples.”

Janette Kolega
Marketing Consultant

“I was especially interested in the holistic approach for Post Merger Integration of Institute for Mergers, Acquisitions and Alliances. The course was backed with real life examples of success and failure in the integration process.”

John Grecu, MBA
Senior Financial Analyst

“I developed a thorough understand of the steps involved in the deal making process, as well as, the key concerns involved – from pricing an acquisition target to post merger integration. This knowledge has helped me in job interviews and will help me in a corporate development role with an International organization.”

Parthasarathy Venkatram
Managing Consultant, IBM Global Business Services

“The IM&A program taught me the key aspects of M&A and provides a toolbox for Due Diligence and Valuation. The method of testing the knowledge of candidates is not only by giving multiple choice questions, but also by giving them  business case scenarios that they need to think through and understand.”
