Mergers, Acquisitions and Corporate Development --- This course will study the theory and practice of business alliances. Alliances among businesses are fundamental necessity of corporate strategy. Every student in this school will spend part of her or his working life addressing business activities that span the boundaries of their own corporation and intertwine with the activities of corporate partners and other organizational allies. Although alliances are necessary for every organization, poorly managed alliances often create substantial problems for one or more of the alliance partners. The goal of this course is to understand the benefits and risks that alliances create for the individual partners and to learn how to manage alliances effectively.
