059668 - FINANCE AND MANAGEMENT OF INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENTS
The second module of the course aims to provide students with the necessary theoretical tools to comprehend alternative contracts, financial arrangements and instruments that could be used to finance infrastructure investments, comparing advantages and disadvantages of traditional and more innovative solutions. Furthermore, the course will present alternative risk management techniques, allowing to model the uncertainty associated with different factors that may affect the overall impact of infrastructure investments. Mathematical finance and financial modelling concepts will allow students to understand how to compare different financing alternatives. Case studies with a specific focus on the Transportation sector will provide students with a methodological framework to manage infrastructure projects, being able to evaluate and compare alternative financial structures and to assess the financial robustness and profitability of the investment. Finally, seminars with practitioners and experts in the field of infrastructure investments will allow students to comprehend and discuss the practical application of the theoretical concepts introduced during the course in real infrastructure projects.
