Mergers and acquisitions

Crédit Agricole Corporate & Investment Bank

Corporate Initiative

Executive Director: Marc Vermeulen, Affiliate Professor, Finance Department

This Corporate Initiative draws on the expertise of HEC Paris’ professors and that of professionals in the field alongside Crédit Agricole CIB’s teams, offering an educational approach that is unique in France and Europe with the “M&A Certificate”.

During their professional lives, HEC Paris students will be called upon to deal, in one way or another, with various issues related to business co-operation, either directly, if they choose to pursue a career in the world of mergers and acquisitions, or more generally in the context of changes in the scope of activity of whichever company they choose to join. Mergers and acquisitions thus warrant special, broad-spectrum teaching to provide students with comprehensive training.

The M&A Certificate is an intensive training course for carefully selected postgraduate students at HEC Paris. The programme is multidisciplinary in nature and covers all the major topics around mergers and acquisitions: Finance, Strategy, Law, Taxation, Due Diligence, Private Equity, Corporate M&A, the cultural aspects of mergers, integration issues, etc.

Combining the skills of an internationally recognised business school with those of a leading financial institution, this initiative goes beyond the academic sphere to transmit knowledge and best practices to students with high potential, and will also promote reflection and applied research in the field of mergers and acquisitions.

As a major player in mergers and acquisitions, particularly in France, where it is a Tier 1 advisory bank, Crédit Agricole CIB also offers young talent trained at HEC Paris an international perspective thanks to its various locations through this Certificate. This Corporate Initiative is also an opportunity to reflect on developments in the complex and exciting business of M&A consulting.
