Student Leadership, Industry Insights Add Value To Kellogg Private Equity Conference
Highlighting the Kellogg School's multidisciplinary strengths and providing another opportunity for its students to put their leadership skills into action, the Private Equity Conference on April 2 brought together top practitioners and scholars for a daylong discussion about emerging issues in the private equity and venture capital industries. "Great private equity people understand risk in real-time," said Waud. These are professionals, he said, who can walk into a room with little more than pen and paper and convey a deep understanding of the variables that create value around an investment. Structuring, negotiating, sourcing, closing, realizing return were among the many skills Waud noted as critical for those in his field.
