Why do the majority of M&A transactions fail to provide the benefits that companies predict or expect? How do you formulate and execute an M&A strategy that creates real value for your organization? Stanford's Mergers and Acquisitions program tackles the entire M&A process from beginning to end, combining an interdisciplinary curriculum with a hands-on, week-long team simulation project.

Through a dynamic mix of lectures, case studies, class discussions, hands-on learning, and guest speakers, this program provides critical insights and powerful tools for the successful formulation and execution of an M&A strategy—one that creates true value for your organization. At the end of each day, you'll put classroom learning into action, applying key concepts learned to a simulated merger deal.

By combining the expertise of Stanford's strategy, finance, accounting, and organizational behavior faculty, Mergers and Acquisitions offers a unique, interdisciplinary overview of the major elements of M&A transactions. You'll examine all of the key aspects of a merger — target selection, alternative valuation and pricing models, deal design, negotiation strategies, accounting and tax planning, and post-merger integration planning and execution. And you'll cover these essential concepts in a sequential order that simulates the M&A process.
