The content of the course is really helpful and touches on the very important subjects in Private Equity and Venture Capital. The delivery by the Professor Stefano Caseli is also fantastic. Thank you!
Excellent content, and superb slides.\n\nPlease check the quality of the English in the slides, and also in the quiz questions. Many quiz questions were difficult to understand because of the English.

It's a really interesting course and very well presented. The first week is about the fundamental concepts of Private Equity (PE) and the benefits that PE has as an alternative way of financing. The second week is about the most famous and used vehicles of PE investment (such as Closed-End Funds, SPACs, Buiseness Angel). The third week focuses on how is the decission process for the PE investor (research, comparision, managing-monitoring). And the last week shows you 2 famous and very used models of valuation that Corporative Finance has.
In my opinion, regardless being a short course, the course provides you a good knowledge base in the world of Coporative Finance (and dont forget that you can acces to all the contents and do exams without spending a dollar)

Very nice compilation of the concept and practices in private equity market currently.
A couple of concepts/jargons which I thought should have been touched upon were pre-money valuation, post money valuation, while the actual practice of arriving at the number of shares, was explain but no reference to the jargon was made.
Also some understanding on concepts of liquidity discount, small size discount and control premium should have been touched upon in case of equity valuation which is quite relevant in case of valuation in small unlisted companies.
Some more elaboration in the area of role and functioning of the investment committee could also be interesting.
On the whole quite comprehensive, relevant and interesting.

First of all, I would like to thank Mr. Stefano Coselli, for the course. The course provide good general overview on how PE works, why PE is needed, benefits for VBC and good overview of the PE business framework and process. THe course will be very interesting for entrepreneurs and students that considers to work in PE business. I would be happy to see a bit more detailed insights on the negotiation process (letter of intent, NDA, NBO, Binding offer, signing, closing), deal structuring (ofshore/onshore, tax issues etc) and management process (rights need to be set out in the shareholders agreement etc).
