Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 11, 2011
Pepperdine University’s Graziadio School of Business and Management is now offering a Certificate in Private Capital Markets, a new non-degree program focused on critical analysis of the private capital markets covering angel investing, venture capital, mezzanine, private equity, banking, asset-backed lending, and factoring segments. The 3-day curriculum based training program is designed for business owners and professionals employed within the finance, banking, investment, mergers and acquisitions, valuation, management consulting, legal, and accounting fields. To learn more or register, visit http://bschool.pepperdine.edu/CIPCM.
“The first class will be offered June 1-3, 2011, at Pepperdine’s West Los Angeles campus, near Los Angeles International Airport,” announced Rachel Williams, director of Executive Education at the Graziadio School of Business and Management. “We anticipate two offerings a year, coinciding with the release of new research reports by the Pepperdine Private Capital Markets Project.”
Led by Dr. John Paglia, the Pepperdine Private Capital Markets Project is the first comprehensive and simultaneous investigation of major private capital market segments and the companies they serve, studying capital suppliers, intermediaries, and service providers. The ongoing research project surveys professionals in the capital markets and business owners twice annually, as well as conducts economic forecasts, and publishes findings in summary reports. Its fifth report is due in May 2011.
“Developed by Pepperdine’s Dr. John Paglia, the certificate program extends his ground breaking research into the classroom,” said Williams. “The certificate qualifies for continuing education credit for CPAs licensed in California and MCLE for attorneys licensed in California and may qualify for other credentials depending on the state of jurisdiction.”
The certificate program will cover:
- An in-depth analysis of the major sources of capital in the private markets
- How providers of funds within the private capital market segments evaluate risk and determine who qualifies for a particular capital type
- All-in costs of each major type of capital and how it is correlated to risk
- Advantages and disadvantages of major capital types in the private markets
- The private cost of capital (PCOC) model to estimate cost of capital for privately-held companies using the Pepperdine Private Capital Markets Project survey data
Seating for the certificate is limited. Curriculum details and admission information is available at http://bschool.pepperdine.edu/CIPCM.
