    In this course we review the historical development of the market for corporate control. As most acquisitions fail in creating value, we analyze commonly cited success factors. By screening the literature of the four schools of thought (financial economics, strategic management, organizational behavior, and process-school) we develop a more integrative approach to M&A. Finally, we explore how firms should embed acquisitions in their organization to achieve strategic aims.
