Building on the student's pre-existing knowledge base and team skills this course is designed to develop understanding and core competencies relating to project economics and investment. It includes coverage of portfolio decisions, project selection, prioritisation, justification, appraisal and financing using pragmatic case studies similar to those likely to have been encountered in professional work. These case studies are then used to build up detailed financial appraisal and decision-support models that can be extended to any project valuation exercise and incorporate practical economic data in order to better understand the corporate, regional and global positioning of a project in terms of factors both internal and external to the project. This is clearly and concisely built into the examples and excel workbooks that are used as the work tools for this course.
