BONUS LECTURE: DISCOVER MY VENTURE CAPITAL MASTERCLASS
John has a lot of knowledge of what he is teaching and this course has helped me to get a good base idea about investment banking. Thanks
Very informative introductory course to Investment Banking. Will definitely recommend it to other Udemy students
I have started this course with zero knowledge on private equity,now i have good understanding of the topic and can comfortably have a conversation on private equity :)
This is a very good course explaining about Private Equity business at a high level. Please add more about roles of General Partner, Limited Partner and co-investments by Limited Partners in the next version upgrade. It would be great if you can also cover about co-underwriting which is an emerging theme.
Even though it is a 101 course, I believe it can go in a little more details with a couple of additional cases for example.
The instructor has knowledge but there is a lot of text reading and explanations that do not seem to be for beginner level. Could use more examples from the real world! The summary slides and resources for each section are a plus!
It was my first introduction to private equity, it was very insightful, but not overwhelming. It triggered me to learn more. The course did exactly what it said it would do.
Fast paced, few animations, but good content. After finishing, I understand the basics of private equity and it is definitely worth the price
First 2 -3 chapters assume a lot of pre-requisite understanding. A bit of the financial jargon could be reduced or explained better. I have the background so it was fine for me, but it could be a bit difficult to someone who wants introduction to this topic. After that the course explains things making the basics very clear. Extremely helpful
This course gave a wide knowledge about PE.. This quite useful for my further studies related to this topic
Great experience, John is articulate, easy to understand and relevant. If you are a beginner I would highly recommend this course.
yea. Some parts, especially about EBITDA calculation, were really quick and confusing for someone with a humanities background
Could have spent more time on EBITDA section. Add another example and use a table for better display of how numbers flow.
Fantastic course, straight to the point. I am a beginner and the explanations were given in a way that it all resonates very easily with me. It made me understand the framework and the basic language of Private Equity. Highly recommended.
not much activities all are orally explained but explained in better way if we get some points to note that will be great
