Enable growth.

That’s the function of venture capital and private equity investing, in a nutshell. In a course covering VC and PE (as they’re known in the industry), you’ll learn how to analyze and evaluate potential investments, conduct the various steps in the investment process, and how investment exit strategies are developed and implemented. This is the ideal skill set for those looking to shape the future. What can we say? Money talks.

Matt Klein, iX Alum
Now working as an Equity Research Associate at Franklin Templeton
"Last summer I had a great experience working in corporate finance, and this summer I got to see a completely different side of the industry. Our teacher focused primarily on start up evaluation and taught us how to build efficient financial models to better assess investment risk. Today, I am working with a team of other iX students on a startup venture of our own. The startup has given me an environment to hone the skills I learned in the classroom."

Thoughts
from our alumni.

Zachary Hoexter
Columbia University, Class of 2023

The iX programs cover the exact combination of learning and experience that is not offered in a traditional college classroom until upperclassman years. If you are interested in finance, this is the perfect and only opportunity as an underclassman to learn new skills and apply those at real financial services companies or projects.

Annie Li
Boston College , Class of 2023

iX helped me to understand and gain the skills that are required to enter the financial industry. Beyond just the skills, with the incredible teaching team who was always there whenever we needed help, I learned more about myself too.

DonoVaughn Tulloch
Duke University, Class of 2022

The iX Private Equity & Venture Capital course was a great way to get a very in-depth understanding of the general business operations and financial services VC and PE firms offer. Being able to work with and help an organization identify potential investors to expand their project allowed me to further develop my professional skills.

Sarah McEachern
Middlebury College, Class of 2021

iX was a great experience coming from a liberal arts background to get into the more technical aspects of finance that I can’t learn at school. The program was excellent in helping me fill gaps as well as prepare me for a future career in the finance industry.

Rachel Bigman
University of Virginia, Class of 2024

I learned more than I could ever imagine and feel very prepared for applying to the business school at UVA and taking new classes. To now be able to create numerous financial statements and understand the foundation of PE and VC, I feel very enlightened.

Ian Humphrey
Virginia Tech, Class of 2021

My experience was amazing. I was able to learn a ton in a short amount of time, network with people from all around the world, and present to a client in a professional manner! My teachers were also very knowledgable, helpful, and cared about our success!
