Structuring Venture Capital and Private Equity Transactions

ECON 513

Teams of students will act as investment-banking teams, and will complete some assignments relating to startups and growth equity. For the second half of the semester, teams will focus on a capstone project, in which they imagine that a public company has asked for help in selecting between potential acquisition targets. The final work product will be an in-depth analysis of the client company and a reasoned selection of one of the two potential targets. Each team will explain the basis for their selection in a report, and will recommend a financing structure for the transaction. Reports will be presented to the entire class. Prerequisite: Economics 372 or Economics 373.
