Course: Private Equity & Other Alternative Asset Classes (Fall 2019)
The LPEA and the Jack Welch College of Business & Technology (JWCB&T) at Sacred heart University (SHU) have joined forces to create a business certificate for Luxembourg professionals, specifically designed to focus on Private Equity: The Private Equity Business Certificate Program.
Together, the LPEA and SHU developed a comprehensive curriculum that offers a unique opportunity to deep-dive into Private Equity and Venture Capital.
This initiative with the Jack Welch College of Business & Technology is the first of a long-term development in Luxembourg that aims at enhancing the skill set of newcomers and current practitioners in Private Equity and Venture Capital, while embracing the University’s “Learn Today, Apply Tomorrow” mission.
Private Equity is one of the best performing asset classes. The setting up, operation and management of Private Equity and Alternative Asset vehicles is also a dynamically developing sector in Luxembourg with a large demand for skilled employees.
The Private Equity Business Certificate Program at the JWCB&T will provide an overview of the main approaches, structures and actors in Alternative Assets and specifically Private Equity. With well-known on the ground practitioners, the elements of a successful Private Equity Fund will be described and discussed in detail. Practitioners such as fund managers, lawyers, and auditors, tax advisers and other service providers to the industry will share their knowledge and experience, and discuss theoretical and practical challenges of their specialization.
