In April, a team of IMBA November 2014 Students participated in the final round of IESE Private Equity competition in Barcelona.
After an internal selection process a team of 5 IMBA Students: Valerii Gladkyi, Olga Latanova, Andrey Mariyanich, Nicholas Llaneras & Juan Camilo Arana Castaneda traveled to Barcelona to represent IE in the IPEC competition this year.
As Valerii said: “The IPEC provided us with an ideal opportunity to leverage our team’s financial skills and get first-handed private equity experience. The competition required our team to act on behalf of PE firm to prepare typical deliverables for an investment committee (DD results, model, investment presentation), all in a real LBO case-study. The workload completely simulated a real-life scenario and required our teams’ full commitment.
Our favorite part was during the final stages where we negotiated the commercial terms and managements financing packages with various professionals from CVC Capital Partners, Carlyle Group, and even the target company. Without any doubt, this provided us with the best opportunity to gain industry experience while in an MBA. We enjoyed both the final round challenge and judges recognition for our presented material, all while proudly representing IE!”
Congratulations to our IE Students for making it to the final round and for holding the IE flag high!
