Students learn the conditions that lead to alliances versus acquisition. Students then study the steps involved in M&A from searching, selection, due diligence, valuation, negotiation, competitive bidding, and post-merger integration. In addition, students learn about the legal and anti-trust issues involved in M&A. Finally, they examine some special types of M&A activities such as hostile takeovers and management buyouts and what leads to these types of transactions. Students go on to examine the role that Corporate Venture Capital often plays as a precursor to acquisitions. The final assignment for M&A is a live negotiation of a yet-to-be announced merger or acquisition from the headlines of the business press. If there are an uneven number of teams in the class, one of these negotiations typically turns hostile.
