THIS IS HELPFUL, BUT I'D REALLY LIKE TO HEAR FROM PAST STUDENTS, IN THEIR OWN WORDS! 


“The Private Equity Boot Camp as a real immersion experience into what PE firms do and how to construct a package that partners will analyze to gauge whether specific companies go into their portfolio. Because of this exercise, I know how to better spend my time in order to acquire the skills desired of PE firms.”

- Alex, Wharton Business School

 

“It validated my interest in PE. I also realized that I may need to build more foundational skills in sell side IB first before transitioning to buy side PE.”

- Chuck, Rice Business School

 

“…it was an exercise that stretched me outside of my comfort zone. I learned terms that I saw frequently displayed on Bloomberg and I finally understood their relevance and meaning…I left the bootcamp with an understanding on how to make the numbers talk and really paint a story of what is going on in a business from a top down approach.”

- Ruth, Harvard Business School

 

“An eye opening experience from my perspective. With little to no exposure to private equity work, I knew I would be learning, but I did not realize how hands on this learning actually is. I personally learn best by doing so this was great!”

-Phillip, UNC


“This course made me more interested in private equity as I was able to translate some of my skills in business analytics into case analysis. I am now able to set a study guideline for myself in business school.”

- Wendy, Yale

F.A.Q.

 How familiar with finance & PE do I need to be already?

  • Not very.  This course is designed to give you a clear, basic sense of how Private Equity, particularly LBO investing, works through theory and practice.  The content is structured so it is easy to learn, and easy to apply so you may emerge with the ability to build basic models and understand the day to day of a Private Equity executive better

How much time will the work take?
  • We all have busy schedules, so we made the course flexible for your needs.  You will be given new content each week for 4 weeks to study at your pace.  Typically those who do every homework assignment and read every article invest ~10 hours per week into the course.
 
Do I have to do all this work alone?  Can I work in a team? 
  • Definitely.  You can register some of your friends and notify the instructor that you'd like to work in teams, or we can match you up with other people in the course to work together.  The structure of the course is ideal for team work, and as such, we believe you will be able to gain great peer to peer knowledge, as well as the chance to meet other like minded individuals.
 
What if I have additional questions?
