This is a fully online two-year Master's Degree course with a specialisation in M&A, Investment and Institutional Finance. It is beneficial for finance professionals and corporate lawyers involved in negotiating big-ticket transactions. One of the most comprehensive courses on mergers and acquisitions and other financial transactions.

Venture capital and private equity have seen massive growth in recent decades as public markets have lost their sheen. The world of finance and corporate organisation is facing new realities of technology and global uncertainty. At the same time, new industries and economies are rising at an unprecedented momentum. There has never been a better time for M&A Lawyers, deal makers, bankers and investment or loan consultants. A career in M&A negotiation and finance is one of the most lucrative. Jobs in this space offer one of the highest pay packages around the world.

This course will help you to acquire legal and regulatory knowledge and skills that will help you to take your place in the realm of negotiation and dealing in other financial transactions.

As an M&A and institutional finance expert, you will influence the domain of negotiation and play an important role in big-ticket transactions that make headlines and have a tangible impact on industries, economy, and society. The responsibilities and rewards of such transactional advisors are huge, as are the risks to those who hire them. This is a very exclusive and skill-intensive profession, and only those who have the right credentials and skills make the cut.

M&A and institutional finance professionals operate at the highest level, working with CEOs of large global companies on how best to position their companies for the future and raising capital for growth. Unlike management consultants, who help companies determine and implement the best strategies without necessarily changing the company’s constitution, M&A and investment professionals drive strategy through structural change. They may acquire other companies, sell off part of their operations or merge with another company. Often, these professionals have to raise money or arrange for massive loans for these transactions or even for organic growth.

There are major opportunities emerging in these areas as corporate India is maturing and the economy is consolidating in many areas. Opportunity for professionals is not limited to just India, the world is a playground here. If you have aspirations to make your mark in this area, this course offers access to some of the best M&A lawyers, bankers and advisors who will teach you in this course. Online access has enabled many busy professionals to access world-class learning of business laws.

This course has been designed especially for working professionals. It will give you the best industry knowledge in M&A and Finance. The course is delivered by an Industry-Academia Panel which comprises of leading experts from the industry. Learn the nuances of the practical legal knowledge required in the field, get the expertise in negotiation. The course can be pursued online from anywhere and at any time, without disturbing your current work commitments.

I came across the NUJS Diploma in Entrepreneurship Administration and Business Laws while searching the internet. I was looking for some course for value addition to my profile and knowledge. I had already done my LLB and MBA but wanted some practical knowledge. This course appealed to me, as it was dealing with business laws and I was working with a corporate. So this course was very significant to me and covered things which were relevant to me.

Rajdeep Chatterjee

Co-founder & CTO indiangrahak.com

When I took up the course, I was working with Wipro as an ERP consultant. However, my real interest in the course was due to my involvement in a startup project. With 2 other friends, I started a business in education industry called Pinnacle Academy. At the time of joining the Diploma in Entrepreneurship Administration and Business Laws course in January 2014, I wanted to learn the intricacies of starting up a new business and how to take it to the next level. Learning how to structure my business right was a point of interest as well.
After this, I decided to study MBA, and I had mentioned this NUJS diploma course in my resume for the interview rounds. IIFT has a 3 stage selection procedure. At the final stage there is an interview. During the selection interview at IIFT, the professor asked me about the course. IIFT gives a lot of importance to entrepreneurship. The fact that I pursued this course along with a full-time job and also had a business on the side was really appreciated. There was a detailed discussion about the course and what I had learned. I believe this course helped me to make a difference and stand out amongst other contenders. The iPleaders team was supportive. In particular, I found the webinars to be really good.
I learnt a lot from the webinars. Registering of a company, filing tax returns, understanding partnership and LLP, getting business licenses, these were very relevant for me. When we have to approach a lawyer also next time, I will not go with a blank mind but a fairly good idea about what I want from the lawyer.

Vinay Biradar

Business Management Graduate at BT- Global Services

I was very impressed by the course syllabus. I found this course to be blended towards my passion and what I wanted to learn, and this made me go for it. Personally, the most interesting topic for me was formulating a business and FDI. Foreign investments was also an interesting topic and in line with my business interest.
I liked the module on drafting also. However, I don't use it much in my day to day work. I have a legal team which handles drafting for my organization as it's a very critical area.
My expectations from this course are more than fulfilled. Before this course, I did not have much idea about how to see an investor, how I should approach an investor, what I should agree and what I should not, etc. This course has given me all necessary insight about these aspects. I have not invited any investor to invest in my startup yet, but I may look out for investors for my future ventures this knowledge would come handy then. As I plan to start two more ventures once my current venture stabilizes.

Karthick Raj

Founder director at Global Talent Hires

I was start struck with the tag of NUJS. It is such a prestigious and reputed name when it comes to legal education. When such an established brand is backing a course it has to be credible. You can trust the course and be assured that the course material would be authentic and up to the mark.
My purpose of joining the course is totally fulfilled, I have gained all the knowledge I wanted from this course. I saved a lot of money which I would have given to legal counsels if I had not taken this course.
I did not have to use any legal firm to set up my company. I did not have any issues while dealing with the Registrar of Company. Because of the legal knowledge, I gained from this course; I did not employ or engage any legal firm in setting up my company. Till date, I frame my company's terms and conditions and other legal documents.
