Structuring Acquisitions: Accounting Advisory Services
- 1.5 credits
This course uses an acquisition project to improve students’ abilities to deal with complex, real-world, unstructured problems as part of a team. Acquisitions present some of the most complex problems one can face in business, and accountants (both public and private) play an important role. Although you will learn something about mergers and acquisitions, financial analysis, firm valuation, law, accounting, tax and negotiation, perhaps the more important goal is skills improvement. In some ways, this course should be viewed as a means of developing confidence in students’ abilities to undertake the solution of complex business problems.
