Duke MBA | Private Equity Club

Welcome to the Fuqua MBA Private Equity Club!

Hello from the Private Equity Club.

We’re excited that you’re here.  The Private Equity Club at Fuqua has a long-standing tradition of supporting students’ professional interests in Private Equity.  The membership typically ranges from 100-150 members, with varying degrees of involvement.  It’s a club with a wide spectrum of focus, from things as broad as answering the question: “What is Private Equity”, to as focused as supporting its membership in finding that elusive PE job.

Club events include professional / industry speaker panels, student-led educational events, networking resources and event co-sponsorship with other clubs. There are many ways for students to get involved with the club, including volunteering to coordinate speaker events, leading educational events and developing the Fuqua / Duke private equity alumni database and network.  

Private Equity recruiting is often a more ‘off-campus’ driven process, but the club is a great support group for those truly dedicated to the hustle!  It provides resources and is always a good conversation starter with alumni working in the field around the country.

The current Co-Presidents of the club are Afshar Sanati and Nico Bascunan.
