Testimonials

«I am impressed by the course. On the one hand, impressed by the quality of the team of lecturers, but also by the very good organization of the compact course. Due to the intensive work on case studies, the practical relevance and the topicality of the examples for M&A transactions was given at all times. Overall, the course has fully covered my needs, as the compact course is also very compatible with the working time on a C-level job. The group of participants in the course was very well chosen, the exchange during the joint work, the breaks or then at the joint dinner were valuable. The network could be supplemented very well with experienced and enriching people.»
