What is the right M&A Certification program for me?

Sarah Quirin's Profile

Hi all together!
I am stuck. I am thinking about taking an M&A certification program. But there are plenty and it is hard to filter which one is the right one for me. I like the MAP Program since it is the only real program I found which is fully digital and flexible. I like the idea of short course lectures and the Body of Knowledge is impressive. However, I am thinking also to do something on-site like the CM&AA but leaving my job for full 5 days is just unrealistic right now.
Do you have any experience with M&A certifications so far?

Best Regards,

Hey Sarah,
We were in the same situation. The CM&AA seems to be a great program but as you said its only on site and really just for middle market advisors.
Currently our whole team (5) takes the MAP Program. The lectures are not longer than 20 minutes each. That makes it easy to follow. The topics are state of the art and the faculty is responsive. The content is modular which allows you to take the certification program also in a blended format; with partly online, partly on site courses. So you are not out of office for a whole week. We wanted to do that, but unfortunately they do not offering any on site events this year anymore.

I hope I could help.

Kind Regards from Florida!

P.s. As far as I know the next on site certification course is in spring 2018.
