“The three real world skills I gained from the M&A program are how to financially evaluate a potential target company, how to finance and structure an M&A deal, and to identify financial or strategic risks upfront in such kinds of transactions.”

About Victor

Victor Decalf previously worked as an Accreditation Consultant and is now seeking a career in a private equity firm. He became interested in M&A because of synergies on a corporate level.
Victor chose NYIF because New York is the capital and the place to be for M&A’s. He recommends the course not only to people who seek to enter Investment Banking but also to young and mid-age professionals who wish to deepen their knowledge of M&A’s.
