One critical success factor in any merger or acquisition is the design and implementation of a sound merger process. Run by Scott Moeller, former Global Head of M&A at Deutsche Bank, Director of the M&A Research Centre at Cass Business School and an author of several acclaimed books on mergers and acquisitions, this course covers the entire merger process from strategy design to post-merger integration and audit.
