THE WORKSHOP

Discover the full extent of mergers and acquisitions—from the initial idea to closing the deal. Based on a real BCG project, you will gain insights into a live transaction and be given the opportunity to apply the knowledge you have acquired so far in a broader corporate finance context.

Together with BCG consultants from Corporate Finance & Strategy, Private Equity and Transaction Center, as well as 60 students from top European universities, you will analyze the strategic rationale of the deal, assess the target company, quantify the potential synergies, and structure the execution of the transaction.

Join us in a French château for the 11th edition of our flagship workshop! Enhance your problem-solving and presentation skills, receive invaluable tips from our experienced consultants, and have all your questions answered. Network with our consultants and your peers, and exchange thoughts on career opportunities, both in the business world in general and at BCG in particular.

Along the way, you will learn the methodologies and approach of the world’s leading strategy consultancy and discover how you can shape a company’s future—and your own!
