MSFS 621 - Intern Project Finance
 The course will focus on design, development, structuring and execution of international Project Finance (“PF”) transactions. The semester will commence with the building blocks of PF, including discussions of the differences between corporate and project financing, and reviewing interests of various participants. We will then move quickly into the discussion of risk identification, allocation and mitigation, which is the foundation of creative financial solutions. Students will become familiar with the concept of the risk matrix, a critical tool in PF. The in-class midterm will weigh heavily on the concepts learned during the first few weeks, as well as their application during a variety of case studies.

The second half of the course will commence with a review of the concepts and use of financial analysis and an introduction to financial modeling, followed by a discussion of the role of contracts in mitigating risk. The second half will also include a series of case studies, as well as guest speakers that will discuss topics such as project documentation, syndications, and environmental and social issues in successful project implementation. The final exam will be a take-home exam that will ask students to demonstrate their knowledge of the conceptual framework for international PF while drawing upon the case studies undertaken throughout the semester as a reference.
