Excellent provider of basic info on private equity and Vc. Content is very easy to grasp. Will definitely recommend it to my peers
Would add more numerical evidences of industry standard numbers and players (e.g. # funds present, biggest PE and VC funds, ...)
Would add a more specific case study
This course is a great introduction to the topic. It is well structured and easy to follow. Very engaging and motivating. Definitely would recommend to everyone who is interesting in this topic or just wants to have an overview over the current trends in the financial market and investments.

I really enjoyed the practical exercises of the course. However, I found the interviews mostly focused on the Italian market and it was hard to find the relevance towards a more global perspective. The lectures were quire well organized and build up slowly towards more complex theories.

Very complete course. I sincerely acquired extensive knowledge in the PE and VC sector. The quizzes are not easy and make you think, go through your notes, use the different financial skills learned during the course - hard to get 100% on the first shot and appreciate the challenge.

This is a fantastic course with a lot of content. The presentation is very clear and engaging. The only downside is that the pace is sometimes quite fast. However, there are slides as supporting material which contain all the necessary details. Thanks for this wonderful course!

I would hear terms such as PE and VC but never really was able to comprehend what they meant. This course improved my understanding of a field that I was not completely aware of. There is huge potential in this industry and this course will definitely improve one's prospects.

An excellent grounding in Private Equity and Venture Capital. Some of the calculations for management fees for example could be more thorough in the slides. Nonetheless, this course will provide a comprehensive background for entry-level private equity candidates. Well done.

I find it the course to be very insightful and very well explained, especially for someone like me with no Business and financial background. Would be even betterif more exercises of calculation would be included. But overall, I am satisfied with the course. Thank you!
