The Cross-Strait (Asia-Pacific) Enterprise M&A Mooting Competition is jointly organized by the College of Law and College of Commerce of NCCU. The competition originally was an extension activity of the course “Cases on Mergers and Acquisitions,” where students from the Department of Law, Accounting, and Business Administration of NCCU formed groups and went through a simulated M&A deal in a mooting competition at the end of each semester. The latest competition took place in March 2016 in Taipei with 12 universities from the Asia-Pacific region participating: Peking University, Tsinghua University, Renmin University of China, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Xiamen University, and Nanjing University in China; National Taiwan University, National Chengchi University, and National Taipei University in Taiwan; the University of Hong Kong in Hong Kong; and the National University of Singapore and the Singapore Management University in Singapore.
CDF executives have been the instructors as well as judges since the second competition in 2012, sharing their negotiation and execution experience from real M&A cases. Along with the enthusiasm and hard work of all the students that have taken part, the competition has come to represent a fun, challenging, and rich learning experience cherished by all involved.
