The Guardian website is a great source of information for students. In light of the AQA BUSS4 pre-release study theme of Mergers and Takeovers, I have started doing some research in the Guardian for my students to help with some case study material as a stimulus to get them started on this research theme. Below are some links to useful recent news articles.

Germany’s Müller group to take over Robert Wiseman Dairies
BA owner IAG beats Virgin to buy bmi
Ex-mergers and acquisitions banker: ‘There’s no time for friends’

This should hopefully provide a useful starting point for students to get to grips with the research theme.
