Transform your approach to private equity

A key tool in the investment landscape, it provides working capital to companies looking to expand into new markets, develop new products or restructure their operations to meet their growth potential.

Private equity is a highly competitive field, but one that, with the right skills and knowledge, is also extremely rewarding.


Examine the complexities of deal-making – from operation and strategy to financing, economic analysis of incentives and exit – using case studies of recent deals in the industry. You also acquire a firm grounding in the financial instruments that model and analyse equity returns.


You return to work with a comprehensive private equity toolkit and a new network of high-calibre business contemporaries.

"I had some pretty high expectations given that the programme is associated with London Business School. The actual experience far exceeded all of them! The information we learned had just the right balance between theoretical and practical. I came away with several different tools I can use when evaluating managers and their performance. I’ve sat in at both Harvard and Stanford classes in the past, and the professors were nothing like Professor Talmor or Professor Vasvari; and the material taught not at all as practically applicable in finance."
