Course aim

Interpretation and understanding of high profile, complex projects that use Asset-based Financial Engineering. Be able to apply corporate financial theory to actual complex projects. Students will learn the terminology used in the field of Project Finance, as well as many of the basic organizational structures used in bringing these ventures to completion. The skills learned will add value and refinement to corporate finance skills gained in previous coursework by addressing situations that are far more complex than the typical textbook examples. Competencies will be gained that integrate the finance function with other functional disciplines such as strategy, ethics, and human resource management. The three primary reasons for using Project Finance, Agency cost motivation, Debt overhang motivation, and Risk management motivation are thoroughly studied and discussed.
