"The mix of case studies, negotiation exercises and guest lectures made this a very hands-on endeavour that I highly recommend to anyone looking to get the latest insights from the Private Equity industry as well as valuation techniques, and the ways in which value is created."

"Tremendous value. The Private Equity executive program gave me the chance to deep-dive into the industry dynamics and value chain. I looked at the market from new angles, learned technical valuation models and explored strategies from target selection to exit. Having the chance to interact with talented professionals, from lecturers to classmates, was the icing on the cake. It made the return on investment very much worthwhile."

"I came into the program carrying positive feedback from previous alumni, and I’m delighted to confirm and reinforce that. The program is taught by faculty with deep industry expertise, providing a powerful, well balanced combination of theory and practice.
