Private Equity

LSESU Private Equity Society is the only society on campus devoted solely to educating and preparing university students for future career opportunities in the Private Equity industry.

With over 300 members, PES is able to serve as the perfect channel for firms to recruit graduates of the highest calibre from one of the world’s most prestigious universities.

Given our impressive network of already 1000 students, we are aiming to continuously grow within the next academic year. With an ambitious plan for events, research and other opportunities in 2022/23, it is the perfect time to join us. 


As the only society at LSE dedicated to private equity, we have a true passion for the industry that we would love to share with you.

As an introduction to the Society, our intentions for the 2022/23 academic year are broadly the following:.

  • By inviting leading private equity professionals to LSE, you can gain access to member-only talks. These sessions will give you valuable insights covering how to get into the profession and what the real practitioners are currently thinking. With an array of events such as fireside chats, panel talks and netowrking events planned.
  • Give you the opportunity to improve your technical skills by attending workshops from leading professionals in the industry. 
  • Present your ideas through competitions such as pitches.
  • Meet like minded individuals at our social events or networking events with other societies and universities.


We have a research team of self-motivated students with a true passion for understanding the highly privileged domain of Private Equity investing. They extensively follow the markets and publish research articles throughout the year and a bi-annual Private Equity Journal. If you share the same enthusiasm, come join our research team and we will publish your work.


Come join us on campus this September at the Welcome Fair and explore more!
