Past Courses


    (Formerly FNCE 884) The goal of this course is to educate students about the substance, process and mechanics of PE investing, through the lens of the investment professionals, counterparties and advisors that drive transactions to completion. It focuses on growth and later-stage buyout transactions (excluding venture capital) taking a primarily U.S.-centric view that should be largely applicable in other markets. The course concentrates on the transaction stage of PE investing, mostly leaving aside deal sourcing, portfolio management and investor relations. Course topics will include: commercial diligence (incl. financial modeling), debt financing, accounting diligence, sales & purchase agreements, comps analysis and other advisory work. Students will apply each element of the deal process to a real-time mock deal by preparing materials that mirror a real private equity transaction.
