As a trained finance professional with studies in UK, Germany and Panamá, I found the "Mergers&Acquisitions Professional Certificate" to be one of my best career investments. It is a very insightful program with deep dive into the M&A understanding. It is a program build not only from the perspective of the M&A project manager but also the M&A f...

I decided to enroll in the M&AP program because I wanted to deepen my knowledge of all the processes involved in an M&A transaction. The course was very complete, addressed with the necessary depth for each of the topics.

I have been following Prof. Damodaran for a long time, reading some of his books, his blog and papers. I think that Prof. Damodaran has a “gift” for everything to make sense within a valuation, while keeping it simple and transparent. During my career of more than 20 years as a fundamental institutional investor, I have dealt with extreme scenar...

This was a solid refresher course for me and I wanted to refresh my memory and learn some new concepts. I like interactiveness of the course, although Prof. Damodaran speaks most of the time, he related to the day-to-day aspects of how things are in reality in terms of valuation. I also enjoyed the section on how to value start-ups as it very mu...

This IMAA course was priceless for me, and I think the course is very diverse in terms of students. The interactive class setting I enjoyed the most. The course is worth the money as Professor Damoda...

Integration is a critical activity in M&A, which can either create unprecedented value for an organization or can lead to negative value creation.
