Private Equity and Venture Capital Tracks

The Private Equity and Venture Capital tracks consist of a series of courses that focus on specific buyout and venture-capital functions, case studies and recent developments in the industries.

Students on the PE/VC track typically take a finance course during their first quarter. They plan their schedules carefully to make room for the networking activities and summer-internship interviews that occur during the first academic year. The program offers a variety of core and elective courses, with majors available in finance, analytical finance, and entrepreneurship and innovation.

At Kellogg, business education begins — but does not end — in the classroom. Students enjoy many opportunities to lead and network through more than 80 student clubs that sponsor conferences, seminars, competitions, corporate projects and service opportunities.

The PE/VC Club is led by enthusiastic students with industry experience. Throughout the school year, the club hosts special training seminars; competitions; speakers from private equity and venture capital firms; academic “Treks” to business centers, including New York City, Chicago and the Bay Area; and social events organized by club leaders. Together with the Distressed Management, Investment Banking, Capital Markets, JD-MBA, and Entrepreneurship Clubs, the PE/VC Club also gives students access to some of the world’s foremost financiers and investors. Each year, Kellogg hosts the Private Equity and Venture Capital Conference, a popular event that brings leaders from the venture capital and leveraged buyout industries to Kellogg.
