A world first for research
The Cass M&A Research Centre (MARC), founded in 2008, is the only such research centre at any major business school focused on both the research and practice of M&A. With its proximity to the City of London, Cass is perfectly placed to maintain close contacts with M&A bankers, lawyers, consultants, accountants, journalists and other key players.
The result has been and is new, cutting-edge insights into the entire M&A field, from deal origination to completion, from financing to integration, from emerging markets to the boardrooms of the world's largest companies.
A valuable addition
MARC is one of over 20 research centres at Cass, which consistently achieves the highest independent ratings. A number of corporations, regulators, professional services firms, exchanges and universities are already using MARC for swift access to the latest research and practical ideas.
The Centre is proud to have its Senior Sponsors, Credit Suisse and EY, and Sponsors, Ardian, Mergermarket and Willis Towers Watson, as research partners.
In 2011, MARC was chosen by AACSB to be the 'Spotlight' feature in its Research/Scholarship Resource Center
MARC's Academic Director, Dr Anh Tran's latest paper, 'Motivating Monitors: The importance of institutional investors' portfolio weights' has been published in the Journal of Financial Economics.
