Hi Alic,

Have you already checked the M&A cases available on Preplounge? If you haven’t yet you will find them under ‘Resources’, ’Case Library’ and then filter the Topic ‘Mergers & Acquisition’.

Also, you might want to check the bootcamp lesson on M&A here:

https://www.preplounge.com/en/bootcamp.php/case-cracking-toolbox/identify-your-case-type/mergers-and-acquisitions

Other than that, I have been using two M&A cases based on real projects to interview candidates during the years but I don't have their solutions in a written format.

Hope it helps,

Jacopo

Hi Deborah,

you can easily find a good number of M&A cases for free online; in order to practice on that you can proceed as follows:

  1. Download some of the main free MBA handbooks available online. I would recommend one of the top business schools (INSEAD and MIT for example have some good ones).
  2. Skim the handbooks looking for M&A cases; if they are in readable pdf format, you can find them as simply as searching for specific M&A keywords.
  3. Read as many M&A cases as possible, then practice live with peers on PrepLounge; if you still have doubts or can’t see significant progress, you may consider booking an expert session to improve further.

Hope this helps,

Francesco

Hi, Thanks for this, I have over 60 case books and have been through a number of them but honestly there are not many M & A Cases in them. If you do know any with some do let me know the names and I can skim through those books. Hope to hear from you soon!

Hi, I have M&A cases which I do with my students (Both DD and synergy types). Unfortunately can't share here since they are from the real interviews. Feel free to reach me if you need a session.
