Quick introduction into a very specific subject for finance managers who expect to contact with private equity investors. Inspite of some not clear points of calculations I assess the course as very useful and effective. Great respect and appreciation to Dr Stefano Caselli, the author of the course, and his university team.

The course served as a solid refresher for PE and VC financing -- I am a CFA charter-holder and I wanted a brief review of the topic at hand. The material is very well organized, with clear and concise short videos. In addition, the instructor was outstanding in his delivery of the chapters.
I greatly enjoyed it. Thank you.

Studying this was course was a real pleasure. Interested in the Life Science Venture Capital I wanted to know more about VC and PE, I had zero knowledge about finance.
The Professor explains very clearly and reactive, I was able to understand everything thanks to the slide sheets and the excel files, I highly recommend it.

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.
