This is exactly what I was looking for: a well-structured project finance course that would equip me with all the skills I needed. The materials are top-notch, and the training is world-class. While I knew already quite a lot about corporate finance, this course was extremely valuable in helping me make the leap to project finance. It has fast-tracked my interview preparation process and in just under a week, I was already familiar with the intricacies of infrastructure finance.
This course has opened for me doors I would have never thought possible. Starting out as a civil engineer, I ended up working for top-notch financial advisors and international financial institutions. I highly recommend this training, it is a first step for professionals who would like to enter the Infrastructure Project Finance industry.
Great course. Instructor made concepts easy to understand and the modelling example is pretty interesting. It would be ideal to build some (optional) module to explain the excel spreadsheet but that sheet has a lot of value in itself being made available. Good work!
The explanation is high-quality and straight to the point. The team behind this training made the complex simple and easy to digest, while adding valuable insights and provoking curiosity. The course added so much value to my arsenal of knowledge and helped me secure interviews and offers with top-notch consulting firms.
