Laeceum hosts M&A case study workshop at the LSE

On 24 January 2024, Founder and Managing Director of Laeceum Ravi Chauhan and Yash Venkatesam, Emma Ford and Simone Toffoli, part-time Analysts, hosted a lively and waitlisted skills-based workshop at the LSE.

Attended by around 50 students drawn from across the university, the Laeceum team delivered a workshop aimed at helping current students prepare for an M&A case study in a boutique advisory firm.

Top tips for success were shared following an engaging and entertaining role play exercise to simulate a real-life case study interview at a boutique M&A advisory firm.

For those that could not secure a place, we will be running similar sessions throughout the academic year. For further details, please contact the LSE Employer Engagement Advisor.
