Entrepreneurship through Acquisition

This elite program is designed to provide support to second year MBA students who are seeking to search for and acquire a business upon graduation.  This can be accomplished via the search fund model, as an independent sponsor, through a family office, or otherwise.  Selected students will participate in regular meetings with the program director and other participants.  Each participant will be paired with an alumni mentor with experience in search funds, private equity, or another relevant field.  Additionally, selected students will receive up to $8,000 in financial support to launch a search fund or otherwise pursue an acquisition.  Academic credit is not available for participation in this program.
