2. Direct and indirect taxation M&A

3. Asset vs Equity Deals

4. M&A and Corporate Restructuring

5. Valuing target businesses

【Course highlight】

M&A is an aspect of corporate strategy focusing on development and growth with specific targets (e.g. market shares, effectiveness, efficiency, knowhow, other aspects) using external ways instead of building them inside the company.

In M&A projects it is crucial to evaluate potential targets, conduct an effective due diligence process, evaluate the tax implications of different mergers, acquisitions and takeovers strategies. Tax involved in a M&A transaction is also a key factor to design the best investment strategy.


Established under an agreement between the Chinese government and the European Commission in Shanghai in November 1994, CEIBS was the first business school in mainland China to offer a full-time MBA, an Executive MBA and a wide range of Executive Education programmes. CEIBS follows the European model of business schools. Its MBA programme has consistently ranked amongst the best in the world.
