About the content
The online course which focuses on the topic of Infrastructure finance is taught entirely in English and is based on “gamification” (the use of game elements and design to stimulate learning).
During the five-week MOOC, participants will be asked to act as a consultant in a fictive consultancy firm advising the project consortium team and dealing with an infrastructure finance project that they will take charge of. They are challenged (through a variety of tools including quizzes and different assignments) to progress through five levels to ultimately raise funds to finance the project. At the end of the MOOC, participants will master the fundamentals of infrastructure finance.
Discover the rules of the MOOC: how to play? How to pass levels? How to take challenges? How to earn a certificate? This level offers the opportunity to be familiar with the nuts and bolts of the MOOC from the technical standpoint. If you don’t want to get lost in the middle, read it carefully.
FUNDAMENTAL BUILDING BLOCKS (1)
Get an overview about infrastructure finance: what is it? This is an introductory chapter on infrastructure finance. This chapter has an ambition: give you the basics and fundamental building blocks that will solidify the foundations of your knowledge. Going forward, as you move down the road of the mooc, you’ll realize how important it was to acquire this knowledge.
FUNDAMENTAL BUILDING BLOCKS (2)
See how Infrastructure financed is abroad
This chapter deepens a bit more on infrastructure finance and gives you a global perspective: how infrastructure used to be funded in various jurisdictions and how this evolved over time. This chapter helps you to put into a different light and shape the diverse infrastructure finance techniques.
Learn the motivations behind a privately financed project (project finance) in infrastructure. This chapter focuses on privately financed projects. The way some projects got undertaken and funded has a lot to do with their essentiality and sector. Here you will see in deep detail how we structure and help raise money for a privately funded infrastructure.
Learn the motivations behind a mixed funded project (involving public and private sectors alike). When mixing private and public funding, the situation is different and the stakes as well. In this chapter we explore an alternative way to fund project in involving the public sector. Again, in a detailed fashion, the partnership between the public and private sector is described and its implications measured.
