Learning Outcome

The purpose of the module is to assess the nature and genesis of entrepreneurship in a number of different businesses. Likewise the purpose is to examine new environments of creativity and innovation.

Program

The program combines courses at Stanford University and site visits; it is an inspiring blend of theory and practice by top-notch academic input and down-to-earth site visits, illustrating both best practices and potential failures.

Stanford University is one of the world's leading teaching and research universities. Since its opening in 1891, Stanford has been dedicated to finding solutions to big challenges and to preparing students for leadership in a complex world.

Students attend lectures at Stanford University with internationally renowned professors and gain inputs from and in interaction with successful entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and business angels. Numerous company visits from start-up companies to well established successful companies such as Facebook, Google, Airbnb and the NASA research are part of the program.

 

VANCOUVER - CANADA

University of British Columbia (UBC) - Sauder School of Business (Option to the courses “International Business“ and “Venture Capital & Private Equity“ at DUK campus)

Learning Outcome & Course Goals

Course 1: Mergers & Acquisitions

With this course, students learn to identify motives of transactions and to apply different valuation techniques in M & A settings and know when and where to apply them. Students will be enabled to recommend and justify a method of payment and financing packages for a deal and understand tactics for friendly negotiations and hostile transactions and also the role of legal environment and good corporate governance. Furthermore students will be able to propose a plausible M & A transaction including motivation, valuation, structuring and integration.

Course 2: Entrepreneurial Finance and Private Equity

The primary objective of the course is to provide an understanding of the concepts and institutions involved in private equity investing. The course surveys venture capital, leveraged buyouts, as well as other types of private equity financing. We will examine all the main challenges faced by private equity investors: forming a private firm and fundraising among institutional investors, screening deal opportunities and interacting with entrepreneurs/managers, structuring deals. I will try to minimize the amount of lecturing along the course and concentrate on the case method to study practical aspects of important topics in private equity.
