Global Private Equity --- As the third course in the sequence, this course extends the coverage of venture capital and private equity from the US model to other parts of the globe. Similarities and differences among regions and countries are examined and related to fundamental forces such as political, cultural, legal and regulatory differences. Emphasis is placed on investment characteristics found in emerging markets and in developed markets of the world. Text, cases and live deals are employed to study the issues involved. As with the earlier courses, this course applies simulation and real options technology to the valuation issues involved as well as game theory to the negotiating of contracts among the several categories of players mentioned above. Familiarity with these valuation technologies is a necessary prerequisite for the course.
