To plug the skills gap and unlock growth and investment in the sector, the Management Programme in Infrastructure Reform and Regulation (MIR) at the Graduate School of Business, University of Cape Town, is offering this specialised short course on Finance, Contracts and Risk Mitigation for Private Power Projects in Africa. The course will cover both theory and practice in power sector financing and a number of Africa-specific case studies will facilitate participant learning.
The course will be presented by Daniel Gross, a private equity and infrastructure investor, lecturer at Yale and adjunct professor at Columbia University, where he teaches Project Finance. His lectures will be supplemented by recent case studies and project documentation exercises from practitioners active in the African energy sector; this includes presentations from the World Bank on risk mitigation and guarantee instruments.
The course runs from 19-23 March 2018 and registration closes on 19 February. For more information and to apply, visit the webpage.
