Instructional approach

Looking at current case examples of successful and failed corporate restructuring and turnaround projects, the classes will focus on developing sound approaches and strategic plans by applying a synthesis of legal and business administration perspectives. Starting from the situation in which a company currently finds itself as-is, with the guidance of an interdisciplinary team of lecturers the contents of a restructuring strategy are developed, proposals for implementation of the strategy developed, and controlling measures put forward. 
The teaching method used on the course is case-study analysis. The accompanying textbook designed for this approach „Restrukturierungs- und Turnaround-Management, Exler (Hrsg.) 2013“ will support your successful learning.
