Abstract

This track focuses on investment decisions, M&A and restructuring topics and introduces you to a spectrum of interesting practical and research ideas and questions. Investment decisions are critical to the growth, profitability, and value creation of companies. And mergers and acquisitions (M&As) are one of the most important investment decisions made by firms, the volume and number of which is impressive. Nowadays M&As are a key strategy for many firms in their attempt to adapt to the rapidly changing conditions of the external business environment. The rising M&A activity is driven by companies seeking to optimize processes, modernize their assets, increase market share, create, or expand digital capabilities, acquire technology and innovation to create new customer experiences, attract talent, enter new markets, and strengthen their competitive position. How has the market for corporate control evolved, how have deal terms changed and what are the specifics of M&As in the new reality? Why do companies resort to restructuring and what are the prerequisites for its success? We will be able to discuss these and other questions with you during the seminar, when building your individual study plan, when choosing your research project and developing a research question that will later be addressed in your master’s thesis. By joining this track, you will be able to discuss with your mentor a set of courses that will help you in your future career in corporations, consulting firms, investment banks and boutique firms, or in your future career in academia when you enter the PhD program. You also can discuss research questions and get additional feedback on your master’s thesis. As well as discuss possible career paths.
