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.
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!

The course was more practical than theoretical which is good. It would've been better if the calculations were done a whiteboard in a manner that the process could be seen. It's a completely new topic for me, so I came in with no expectations and I was very please with the end result.

Very well structured and succeeds fully in giving a clear overview of the PE and VC world. Concepts are well explained. Excellent as an introduction. Would require a lot more detail to be of practical use to persons directly involved with PE (Sconsidering PE or PE analysts).
By Franck C•
Great overview of the PEVC world. Thank you all. The courses were very clear. One star less though as all calculation methods would have diserved some more lessons/time.
I am finally very positively impressed and thankfull for the course.
See you probably soon. Best regards.

The course material (readings) and the video classes were very good. I believe the test questions could be improved and perhaps be a bit harder. Finally, I have participated of the forums but could not find my postings later (may be because I have not bought the course)

Flow of the course was good. Concepts were explained in a simple manner. Field experts and PE investors were called for sharing their experiences and views was very much appreciated. However more practical examples and a case-study would have made the course better.

Wealth of knowledge given was definitely comprehensive. Only improvement would be to guide students in the computation of Equity Value, etc. as it can be challenging understanding how certain figures were derived without the whole computing process being shown.
The valuation part could have been taught better. The other sections were well explained. The accompanying slides are quite detailed. If one is interested in understanding the basic principles underlying Private Equity and Venture Capital, this is the course!

good course provides a good understanding of PE & VC world with working examples and worksheets. Love to see some more real-life working examples and maybe add a capstone project to complete at week-5. Good work prof. for building and educating us.

Professor Caselli is an amazing teacher, with a real expertise and a lot of experience in Private Equity and Venture Capital. The lessons are clear and well-structured. Nonetheless, I would have liked to work on modelling as well in these lessons.
By Robert M•
Interesting and informative. A good entry-level course for those looking to get a clearer picture of the PE/VC space. I found the financial side of it a bit difficult to follow (though might just be me). Keep up the good work Universita Bocconi

Giving practical examples should be increased, rather than explaining the mechanisms directly some examples from past present should be used about the private equity market. professor Stefano Caselli has explained every part thoroughly.

Very good but a bit rushed. Could have taken more time to go over more details and give students a better grasp on the underlying parts. But overall does a good job on giving students an introductory general view of Private Equity.
By Aditya A•
I found the course informative and interesting throughout , including the valuation part of it .
But the course should include more case studies of deals that have taken place to get a better understanding of the PE industry

this course provides a great structure and a good introduction of PE and VC, it will be much better if the course provides more details of the connotations and meaning of some formulas, instead of just listing the formulas.
By RICHARD M•
Very interesting! Great professor! Well structured and useful information. Would be helpful and interesting to add a list of well known private equity funds and Venture capital players. Thanks a lot for this clear course!

The instructor seems quite informed and passionate about the subject but it was a little hard following the Italian accent at times. Some concepts were merely glazed over but other than that, the course is a good primer.
By Valerio M•
Really enjoyed the course by Bocconi, clear, well organized, focused on important issues of PE&VC, a major theme in nowadays economic environment. I recommend this course, if you want to improve your knowledge on PE&VC.
By Friso B•
A great course that cover most of the fundamentals of Private Equity and Venture Capital. There could have been more attention given to the quantitative valuation process, but the entire course is extremely worthwhile.
By Vinicio S•
A very interesting course.
I suggest it for all those who wants to be introduced in this subject, but don't believe it is only an overview!
The teacher deepens taxation and managerial aspects and I appreciated this.
Great course - absolutely enjoyed it. i have no background in private equity or finance. the flow and structure is really great. the only thing missing is more real life examples/case studies during the lectures.
By Stéphane A•
very interesting and useful course. I hope that many users will find it relevant. African market and models are absent on the présentation; I appreciate the professor and the slides exercises are quite clear
By Nicolas-Patience B•
Brilliant course... Not too long or too short, just enough to give a decent understanding of the field and complement knowledge acquired elsewhere... I am even more inclined to learn more about PE and VC now.
By Jacob W•
To make the course more realistic, include short papers / exercises and limit tests to ONE attempt. This will incentivize me to study more and not rely on the number of attempts to carry me to a great score.
By Lapo L•
The course gives great theory and helps understanding various concepts of PE and VC, wish it had more case study practices and tests especially with all the data coming out from companies in the last months.
Great course! The only struggle was going through the formulas too fast (if you are not used to finance and abbreviations) - for some users it could be too advanced and confusing. Otherwise, great stuff!
