The winner of the IESE Private Equity Competition held this week on campus was the Pedralbes Capital team. Members of the victorious team were Marta Amoros, Jaume Betrian, Arnim Bonow, Cedric Masson and Thomas Roggendorf.
During the daylong event, five teams of MBA students engaged in tough morning negotiations with three judge panels representing management, lenders, and the investment committee before making their final proposal to the investment committee in the afternoon. The strongest teams displayed flexibility, listening skills, financial acumen and the ability to plan for all stakeholder risks and needs.
The first-ever IESE Private Equity Competition was a great success thanks to the initiative and planning of the members of the competition team: Salone Sehgal, Stephen Stakhiv and Davor Tremac. The group has started a great IESE tradition that is sure to grow in coming years.
