Certified Mergers & Acquisitions Program

The program was developed by the faculty of the Coles College M&A Academy and is focused on the special interests of M&A intermediaries serving private companies in the middle market and business owners preparing for acquisition or sale. Due to the travel challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Certified M&A Professional (CM&AP) Certificate Program has been re-designed for live virtual delivery over a six-week period.
