  • How you learn

    Expert guest speakers

    Learn how deals succeed or fail and how to spot opportunities and pitfalls. Experts, such as Energy and Infrastructure Consultant Martin Blaiklock, share their experiences and offer practical insights. Martin Blaiklock has undertaken project assignments worldwide, particularly in emerging markets. He shares insights from the frontline into what makes a deal succeed or fail, and explains how to spot both opportunities and pitfalls.


    Practical exercises to build skills

    Real-life scenarios are a key component of the programme. You examine a series of case studies(such as the Public Private Partnership case with London Underground) analysing and discussing key aspects of each one. These give you the opportunity to practise the skills involved in project finance. You identify the issues and challenges of specific projects, look at how to value and structure the deal, and ultimately decide what you would do if faced with a similar project.


    Stimulating debate and shared experiences

    A diverse and collaborative environment to learn from the insights and experiences of your peers. You build a deep understanding of different business environments and ways of working, which are invaluable to large-scale global projects with multiple stakeholders.
