Capstone – Project
M&A Assessment for University Enrollment Management Software
A Collaboration Between
GlyphEd is looking for help administering a comprehensive industry assessment for M&A targets. Their goal is to identify key players that are involved with data analytics in the education space. Ideally, they would like to profile acquisition targets based on their business model, product features, and market penetration. They’re also looking to assess where there are clear strategic or product-related synergies with GlyphEd as part of the acquisition assessment. This exercise also includes recommendations around how a merger would enhance the overall GlyphEd’s overall business and how they would ideally go about integrating any new businesses into their existing business. Students who enroll in this course will:
- Students will have the opportunity to combine data analytics with qualitative competitive research to develop real-world M&A recommendations.
- Understand the complexities of analyzing businesses with limited data.
- Develop an understanding of how to think through the implications of M&A activities.
- This project is suitable for MBA students interested in the higher education space, with interest in administering industry research and due diligence on viable acquisition targets.
