FS&D Business Academy launches exclusive mergers and acquisitions program

Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) take place for many strategic business reasons, with economic benefit at its core. The past few years have seen several major acquisitions that are aimed at driving shareholder value, and enabling Aramco’s mission of becoming the world’s leading integrated energy and petrochemicals company.


As part of Saudi Aramco’s continuous commitment to M&A competency development for company employees, the FS&D Business Academy has developed a comprehensive program that includes deal simulations, case studies, valuation analysis, due diligence, and various certification levels in collaboration with top tier international investment banks and M&A institutions.


Khalid H. Al-Dabbagh, Aramco’s senior vice president of FS&D said: “Achieving success through Mergers and Acquisitions is a company imperative as Aramco moves into the future. The newly developed M&A Program at the FS&D Business Academy will help all those interested in the exciting area of M&A whilst developing core skills that will serve the company to deliver high quality transactions.”


The launch of the M&A Program will enhance Aramco’s expertise in creating more value through the full life cycle of M&A. Candidates from across the organization will be able to attend M&A residential programs at some of the top global business schools, including Harvard Business School, INSEAD, and London Business School. In addition, through our partnerships with banking & advisory institutions, candidates will participate in tailored M&A workshops and practical sessions, providing hands-on knowledge transfer through group discussions. Premier world Investment banking firms will facilitate workshops to share key lessons learned from major transactions. This unique program is now available to interested candidates across business lines to develop their M&A skills and competencies.
