Who should attend

The Private Equity program targets bank managers' intent on understanding the industry better, investment managers keen to develop a thorough understanding of the deal mechanics, institutional investors with an interest to commit funds to the sector as an asset class, and corporate managers looking for a better understanding of how private equity investors create value in deals.

About the course

The Private Equity program provides participants with a solid and critical understanding of the inner workings of later-stage private equity (growth capital, buyouts and turnarounds), including the operation of private equity funds, the ways and means of engineering buyouts and restructuring transactions, reporting and performance measurement, and the institutional investor perspective.

We will re-examine the assumptions behind the industry and provide a provocative, cross-country analysis of the ways and means of investing in growth, buyout and turnaround situations. The program will provide an intense learning experience comprising formal lectures, group discussions, exercises and case studies.
