London Campus Open House

Business & Professional

Join us for the day at Hult's London campus to find out what it is like to study business at a truly international school in one of the world’s most dynamic cities. You’ll meet our faculty, staff, and students have the chance to ask your questions about the Masters, MBA or Executive MBA program, and hear stories from the inspiring students who make our school so special.

Learn how an internationally focused degree can help prepare you for success in an increasingly global world, and see what life could be like as a Hult student. As part of the experience on campus, you will be invited to participate in an interactive lecture with Professor Aleksander Greszczak speaking on "Mergers & Acquisitions – How to insure multinationals make value creative acquisitions ?"

Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) are transactions in which the ownership of companies or their operating units are transferred or combined. A merger is a legal consolidation of two entities into one entity, whereas an acquisition occurs when one entity takes ownership of another entity's interest or assets. As an aspect of strategic management, M&A can allow enterprises to grow, change the nature of their business or improve their competitive position.

“Based on a real-life case Kraft’s acquisition of Cadbury, this lecture will answer the following questions (as it relates to the M&A market in general):

  1. What strategies do companies employ to create shareholder value ?
  2. Why is it that most M&A transactions destroy shareholder value?
  3. What to do to ensure that acquirers create value for their shareholders?
