    Global case studies

    Specially chosen cases reflect a variety of industries, country locations and specific advanced corporate finance topics, giving you a comprehensive understanding of how to apply complex tools and techniques in a real-world context. You learn to assess not just in-depth global financial topics but also how to identify cross border risks - and understand their relevance. Examples include the Adecco Acquisition of Olsten Corp, a global M&A case which looks at applying valuation techniques, and Dow Chemical’s Bid for the Privatisation of PBB in Argentina, which focuses on valuation in emerging markets.
