Course overview
This learning pathway introduces investment analysts to private equity as an asset class and the art of LBO modeling. We'll begin with the fundamentals of private equity, covering its evolution, strategies, and role in modern portfolios. You'll explore PE transaction mechanics, from deal sourcing to value creation.

The pathway then focuses on leveraged buyouts, teaching you to construct and analyze LBO models. Starting with basic structures, we'll progress to advanced topics like debt tranches, covenant analysis, and waterfall structures. Throughout, you'll apply your knowledge to real-world case studies and exercises.

By the end, you'll have a comprehensive understanding of private equity dynamics and the ability to build sophisticated LBO models. This practical, hands-on approach will equip you with skills directly applicable to PE firms or broader investment analysis roles.
