Event description

Description

This informational session is for students interested in participating in the Polsky Center’s private equity programs, including the Oxford Chicago Global Private Equity Challenge, Private Equity and Venture Capital Lab, and Sterling Partners Investment Thesis Challenge.


Oxford Chicago Global Private Equity Challenge

Offered in partnership with the Private Equity Institute at Oxford University, the Oxford Chicago Global Private Equity Challenge is a case competition exclusively designed for Chicago Booth and Oxford University students. The Challenge enables teams from both institutions to assess the potential for a leveraged buyout of a publicly-listed company and compete for a cash prize. It consists of two rounds: a semifinals event in late November and a finals competition in late February at Chicago Booth. The finals competition alternates annually between Chicago and Oxford, with the 2019 event taking place in Chicago. More info: bit.ly/Ox-Chi


Private Equity and Venture Capital Lab

The Private Equity and Venture Capital Lab was created for Chicago Booth students to learn firsthand about the private equity and venture capital industries. Through the combination of an intensive internship at a private equity or venture capital firm and an academic course, students become active participants in the analysis of real-world investment decisions made by seasoned investors and also learn to apply their academic frameworks to their internship experiences.

Sterling Partners Investment Thesis Challenge

SPITC encourages students to form teams to conceive and propose an original investment thesis they wish to work on. Selected teams work with mentors at private equity firms over a span of three months to develop an investment thesis based on proprietary research and recommend an execution strategy.
