Infrastructure Investment and Finance

There is growing demand for infrastructure investment globally as traditional sources of public funding and finance can no longer be presumed to provide the required levels of capital. This innovative course considers the perspectives of procuring infrastructure as well as providing the private finance to deliver the required investments to close the infrastructure gap.

Entry requirements

A minimum of an upper 2nd Class Honours degree from a UK university in a relevant subject (including engineering, mathematical-based science, built environment, economics and finance), or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. In exceptional cases, a lesser academic qualification combined with substantial professional experience and demonstrable academic ability will allow acceptance onto the programme.

Course modules

Core modules: financing infrastructure (fundamentals and innovations in funding and financing); infrastructure using a special purpose vehicle; infrastructure (economic principles and policy); infrastructure as an asset class; agency and transaction costs in infrastructure projects; risk modelling and asset management in infrastructure projects; demand forecasts, business cases and appraisal methods for infrastructure projects; the management of infrastructure projects and programmes.

Assessment methods

The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars, group tutorials/workshops, project briefings, and individual supervision for the research-based dissertation element. Assessment is through examinations, 3,000-word written term papers and 10,000-word dissertation.
