Pycap CEO Stuart Browne - 2nd Year in A Row - Nominee for the Schulich Part-Time Faculty Teaching Award (2020-2021)
For the second year in a row, Pycap CEO, MBA and Master of Finance instructor Stuart Browne was nominated for the John Peace Part-Time Faculty Teaching Award for his outstanding teaching and extra curricular support throughout the period of 2020 to 2021. Venture Capital and Private Equity was the course created and taught by Stuart Browne, along with administration provided by Pycap Operations Manager Amelia Dookhee. The course includes topics such as deal sourcing, valuations, portfolio structuring, financial analysis of PE and VC, as well as future implications of technologies such as blockchain and security token offerings.
"I designed the curriculum to provide students with insight from the real world trenches of VC and PE along with the foundational learning of academia. It is this combination that really resonates with the students and makes my role at Schulich so fulfilling." said Stuart.
The John Peace Part-Time Faculty Teaching Award was established in honour of John Peace, a part-time instructor at the Schulich School of Business between 1986 to 1996. John had a small law practice in downtown Toronto, focusing on real estate law. He also taught business law and real estate courses at Schulich.
While each area can only nominate one colleague, the John Peace Part-Time Faculty Teaching Award has always been about recognizing the important contributions all part-time faculty make to the success of Schulich.
