One session deals with financial instruments and provides an understanding of the causes that led to the financial crisis. Finally, the course allows participants to learn how to evaluate financial statements, with a particular focus on International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), which will be discussed with special attention to doing business in China.

  • Corporate Finance (3 Tage)

    The capital structure and refinancing costs of a company are important indicators of its financial health and ability to attract capital from investors and markets. In order to remain competitive and to avoid becoming a target for potential take-overs, organizations have to manage their finances effectively and earn premiums on the capital employed. This course enables the participants to attain an understanding of the key issues in corporate finance, including company valuation, costs of capital, and risk premiums.

    This course is designed to help participants:

    • learning how to calculate diversification effects and general risk premiums in financial markets and for specific companies
    • learning how to evaluate companies, merger options, and LBOs 
  • Mergers & Acquisitions (2 Tage)

    The course focuses on five aspects of mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures: (1) When are acquisitions and divestitures the most applicable tool to advance and implement a firm’s strategy? (2) How should acquisition targets be assessed, both strategically and financially, in the due diligence process? (3) How should acquisition and divestiture programmes be developed and managed? (4) How to become a successful systematic acquirer and how to develop a firm’s capabilities to manage divestiture processes successfully? and (5) How to lead the acquisition integration and divestiture separation processes? A number of cases of both successful and less successful companies accompanied with a set of analytical frameworks are used to develop participants' skills to successfully develop and execute acquisition and divestiture strategies.

    This course is designed to help participants:

    • gaining an overview of the determinants of and patterns in merger and acquisition activity
    • learning about the central success factors and success traps in merger and acquisition processes

    • learning to critically discuss and reflect upon previous transactions in business practice
  • Soft Skill Course: Negotiation in a Cross-Cultural Environment (1 Tag)

    Sino-European deals are crucial due to the relevance of China as an Economic Power. Although deal making in western countries follows the “win-win” Harvard approach, when negotiating in Asia this model needs to be revisited and adjusted to their values and cultures.
