Overview

This online course will provide a basic overview of public-private partnerships and project finance covering both academic theory as well as a technical review of some of the basic techniques used for the delivery and management of transportation infrastructure projects. The course will integrate multiple case studies from actual transportation projects and provide examples of methods and management procedures used by agencies, financial institutions, and infrastructure companies delivering projects via the project finance technique. Delegates will also explore project financial modeling and the inputs and risk associated with such models. The course leans toward the public or owner view although all stakeholder perspectives are incorporated into the course material. The course is ideal for delegates that are new to project finance and PPPs.
