The Objective of this Course is to introduce you to the Game of "Mergers and Acquisitions"!

Well, of course it is not really a game and nor is it a science but a complex art form. I have tried to break it into understandable components to explain it using my Six Minute Strategist Nested Hexagon Methodolody (explained in the Introductory video).

The Course comprises 8 Videos. In addition, I have provided some Bonus PDFs for you to understand some of the more complex aspects of the first three Lectures and a Business Analysis Template discussed in the fifth lecture.

The Course Videos last a total of 45 Minutes.

The Course is structured into 8 Lectures:

1. An Introduction to the Course

2. Part 1 - The M&A Game

3. Part 2 - Sellers

4. Part 3 - Process

5. Part 4 - Critical Issues

6. Part 5 - Business Segmentation

7. Part 6 - Target Identification

8. Wrap Up and Summary

If you are new to M&A or studying Business, this Course is designed to introduce you to a large number (over 120) issues you need to understand.
