I decided to enroll in the M&AP program to further my knowledge and skill set in the entire transaction process of mergers & acquisitions. By having a certification in M&A from a recognized program like IMAA has helped me by gaining a better understanding how to manage the complexities of the M&A process in terms of determining a rationale, plus how to select and value acquisition targets in the future. The online format was structured to help busy professional work at their own pace, while gaining quality education from faculty experts in the M&A field. I highly recommend this program, as you and your peers will gain new insights into why M&A strategy is related to all elements of the process, including valuation, deal structure, due diligence, an integration. The faculty discussions, case studies, and real-world M&A simulations enable you to gain experience in successfully navigating a transaction while dealing with a wide array of issues.
