in risk analysis and modelin This course is a graduate level introductory course in risk analysis and modeling The course will focus on the nature of risk particularly as it affects decision making in areas such as public policy legislation and regulation economics and finance In that context the use of mathematical models will be explored from simple deterministic models to more complex probabilistic models The conditions under which risk models are most useful will be explored as well as the situations such as the occurrence of black swan events where risk models are prone to

in Developing Countries This seminar is designed to provide participants with a practical understanding This seminar is designed to provide participants with a practical understanding of how private equity investments are originated structured valued and eventually exited focusing primarily on developing countries Private Equity PE refers to a range of financing techniques that provide long term capital to companies usually before they are able to issue publicly traded securities including venture capital for early stage companies equity for well established small and mid size firms and mezzanine debt that has some equity characteristics PE investors expect to generate high financial returns because these financings are characterized by illiquidity and high levels of risk compared to publicly issued securities Because of these risk factors and the relatively long term nature of the investments PE investors are exceptionally rigorous and demanding in the screening due diligence valuation and negotiations that precede a decision about each investment and then they remain actively involved with their portfolio companies until an exit is completed Three premises have heavily influenced the design of this course First the vast majority of companies in developing countries have limited or no access to medium and long term capital creating an opportunity for PE to play an enormously important role both for the profitability and competitiveness of individual firms as well as for overall private sector development and macroeconomic growth Second private equity especially in developing countries is about much more than supplying scarce capital to worthy firms successful outcomes hinge upon the investor s capability to be a hands on contributor to long term value creation in its portfolio companies And third PE in developing countries should be viewed as a significantly different asset class than in developed countries because of a daunting range of additional risks and challenges For example problems of information asymmetry between investors and their portfolio companies are greater legal systems are less reliable corporate governance standards are weaker regulations and public policies often are counter productive and exit opportunities are limited due to small or non existent IPO markets and underdeveloped M A markets But these same risks also create exceptional PE opportunities especially for savvy investors who are able to capitalize on sector and company inefficiencies This course highlights how investors can successfully overcome the risks and capitalize on the opportunities that characterize PE in developing country environments The course begins with a PE industry overview an introduction to the entire PE investment cycle and a hands on review of the common valuation methodologies used by PE investors Once these basic building blocks are covered the course turns to case studies that are based on actual transactions highlighting the challenges and tasks at each stage of the PE investment cycle such as structuring and fund raising for a PE fund originating investment opportunities conducting due diligence and valuation preparing term sheets and other documentation monitoring and creating value in portfolio companies and exiting investments Although most cases focus on the activities of PE fund managers investors some cases focus on other stakeholders such as entrepreneurs weighing the pros and cons of raising capital from PE investors institutional investors e g pension funds university endowments considering whether to invest in emerging markets PE and development finance institutions with a mandate to strengthen the PE industry in developing countries You will learn in this course that although financial analytical skills are a pivotal ingredient for success in the preparation and execution of transactions the PE investment process requires a far broader more multidisciplinary arsenal of skills and sensitivities especially amidst the high level of uncertainty that is characteristic of most developing country PE investment climates Some sessions will require financial modeling and valuation exercises but the overall approach to the subject is more holistic examining all aspects of the investment cycle and the perspectives of a range of PE stakeholders operating in developing country environments Leveraged buyouts which have become prevalent in some Western countries are far less common in developing countries for reasons that will be explored during the course Course Number SA 380 778 Campus Washington

lecture it will begin by examining infrastructure what it is and why it is so important to long term economic growth and development It will then review the way infrastructure projects are developed

partnerships the risks involved and the perspectives of both public and private organizations To ensure that students are exposed to the practical application of the theory lectures throughout the course will include practical examples and grading will include a major practical assignment as well as three case studies A primer in finance with a focus on modeling for PPPs will also be included
