Established in 1964, London Business school is now one of the world’s top business schools. Here at moneybagsfull.com we were interested to find out they are running a new project finance programme that starts June 25th 2012 for 5 days.
What is Project Finance?
Project finance is the long term financing of infrastructure and industrial projects based upon the projected cash flows of the project rather than the balance sheets of the project sponsors. There has been a rise in popularity of this type of financing recently and a need for such a programme for busy professionals who can’t afford to take much time out of the office.
Participants learn how to use financial information to make better decisions for their organisation, or develop their understanding of a specific specialisation. These highly practical programmes enable participants to implement the knowledge and skills they have gained immediately upon their return to work.
About the Project Finance programme
At the centre of the Project Finance programme is an in-depth analysis of real-life case studies covering both successful and not-so-successful examples of project financing in both Europe and emerging markets, allowing participants to apply the theories of project financing to real-life deals.
These are just some of the questions addressed on London Business School’s new five-day Project Finance programme:
- Why is project financing being increasingly relied on to fund investments?
- What advantages does it have over traditional corporate finance?
- What are the valuation challenges posed by such structures?
- If such projects encounter financial distress, how should they optimally be restructured?
The programme will be taught by Professor Karl Lins. Karl has for more than a decade been researching topics such as international corporate governance and transparency shortcomings that drive the need for project finance versus corporate finance structures. His work is consistently published in the top finance and accounting journals.
By the end of the programme, participants will be able to:
- Understand the language of project finance and gain credibility through learning at a top business school, leading to an increase in confidence when working with stakeholders
- Employ the tools needed to analyse and value project finance structures back in the workplace
- Build a strong network of contacts from the growing project finance industry
Who is the programme for?
The programme is particularly relevant for industry professionals who will benefit from a deeper understanding of the key themes of investment management including:
- Asset managers
- Institutional and/or private investors
- Investment consultants and independent financial advisers (IFAs)
- Regulators, compliance officers, accountants and lawyers
- Investor relations specialists and corporate financiers
- Risk managers, actuaries, auditors and quantitative analysts
- Pension fund and endowment trustees
- Investment managers, private bankers and family office representatives
