A team comprised of MPhil Real Estate Finance students, Ben Dalton, Ivan Pedretti and Julian Hilbert, along with two other students, Leonie Hondeborg from Judge Business School and Victor Nourrissat from Warwick Business School, won on the final round of the UIBS M&A Challenge, an international case study competition hosted by the finance societies of London School of Economics (LSE), University College London (UCL) and Imperial College. The final round and an exclusive networking session was held at Imperial College of London on Saturday 14th November 2015.

More about the competition:

Participants were assessed on their ability to work as a team, support their arguments using quantitative and qualitative methods as well as how they collated and articulated ideas within the time limit.

The UIBS M&A Challenge is based around a recent European acquisition. The competition provides participants with the opportunity to learn about real-life strategic considerations when bringing two firms together as well as the potential financial and executional implications.

The teams were expected to analyse the proposed acquisition and prepare a PowerPoint Presentation.
