Learning Objectives:

excellent presentation

This was definitely more an advanced subject for someone not focused in this area. That said the instructors were very knowledgable and had very good interactive chemistry in presenting their topic.

This was a really well done course with real practical/professional value. Appreciate your creating courses for private equity specialists as it is not a large practice area.
