Honours Class Private Equity
The Honours Class Private Equity is an extracurricular programme designed to complement your regular studies by applying theory to practical scenarios. Together with 24 students from diverse master specialisations offered by Erasmus School of Economics, you will participate in guest lectures, a private equity game, and a symposium, all facilitated by an international investment firm in Rotterdam.
Successful private equity ventures demand a multi-dimensional approach, integrating finance theory for valuation and governance, strategic analysis for investment theses, economics for market understanding, and econometrics for forecasting. Collaborating with fellow students from various backgrounds nurtures interdisciplinary skills, enhancing the application of theory.
Tailored for both students with and without a finance background, the programme hones technical, analytical, and communication proficiencies. Upon successful completion, you will earn 5 extracurricular ECTS credits. Please not that, these ECTS cannot replace or compensate standard coursework credits.
Among the character traits that define Rotterdam students are their high level of activity and their hardworking mentality. They are actively involved in all sorts of consulting associations and often have side jobs as student assistants to professors or in the administrative departments of the faculty. Their contribution keeps the faculty on their toes and allows them to incorporate the students’ opinions.
The character of the students is also demonstrated by the active faculty and study associations. The study association of Financial Economics is FSR.
