Course programme

Accounting for Mergers & Acquisitions is the final module of five comprising the New York Institute of Finance’s popular Mergers & Acquisitions Professional Certificate program. In this course, you will learn how to apply accounting and federal income tax principles to project earnings and cash flows, specifically of the post-combination entity. To drive concepts home, you will work on real world examples and journal entries for common to complex M&A accounting treatments. Taught by instructors with decades of experience on Wall Street, this M&A course will equip analysts and associates with the skills they need to rise to employment in the M&A field. Additionally, directors and managers who have transitioned, or hope to transition, to M&A from other areas such as equities or fixed income can use this course to eliminate skill gaps. Upon completion of this course, participants will receive a certificate bearing the New York Institute of Finance (NYIF) name. A NYIF certificate, highly valued in the finance industry, will bolster a resume or LinkedIn profile and prove the skills you’ve gained to potential employers. For those who wish to go further, students can enroll in the remaining four modules to earn the complete M&A Professional Certificate, backed by the New York Institute of Finance’s 93-year history. As a final option, students may also opt to sit for the NYIF Certificate of Mastery Exam, resulting in an M&A Certificate of Mastery upon successful completion.
