Young ACG

ACG University:  ACGU will provide young professionals with a valuable tool for future M&A dealmaking. Each week for 7 weeks, a team comprised of some of the region’s most successful and experienced M&A dealmakers and deal advisors will lead a series of lectures, discussions and interactive breakout sessions exploring all aspects of M&A deals. The program immerses young deal professionals (representing different functions within the deal process) into the life cycle of a transaction, teaching the key elements of sourcing, valuing, financing, negotiating, structuring and closing a deal.  Young ACG members will receive a discount to ACG University.
