I recently completed the Mergers and Acquisitions Specialization by the University of Illinois through Coursera. The course was challenging and enriching, offering deep insights into valuation, deal structuring, and financial modeling. The faculty provided excellent guidance, and the collaborative learning environment was highly rewarding. Highly recommend this specialization for anyone looking to deepen their knowledge in M&A. Warm regards, Oleksandr Vorontsov

The courses by Mr. Metzgar are worth it and has some practicality. Otherwise too theoretical with little applicability. I wonder why M&A courses do not have a live example or two? May be worth exploring other courses. Completed this too quickly which is another barometer.
