Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2015-2016.

Consists of a series of cases that focus on the private equity investments process and the subsequent management of such investments. The primary perspective is that of a private equity fund (early stage, growth or buyout) in assembling and evaluating information, preparing forecasts, assessing risks, developing and negotiating investment structure and terms, and deciding whether to invest. The secondary perspective is that of managing the private equity fund and the techniques and skills employed in growing value. Classroom discussions will be as if the class were an investment committee meeting. Grades are based on written investment memoranda prepared before class and quality of classroom participation.

When Offered Spring.
