The four-week Project Appraisal and Risk Management training program teaches financial, economic, stakeholder, and risk analysis and risk management through real and applied case studies, lectures and group discussions.
The workshop takes you through a flexible appraisal framework designed to handle different types of projects, from commercial enterprises and utilities to infrastructure investments and social programs. It also covers a wide range of issues such as environmental impacts, risk management and poverty reduction. Leading experts in specialized areas are also invited to address participants. Additionally, you will work with other participants to complete a project in your own sector of interest.
The program is led by Dr. Fernando Fernholz. Duke University faculty representing different disciplines and perspectives, and senior practitioners in project appraisal and risk management from international organizations, financial institutions, and other prominent development institutions also instruct during this workshop.
This program is open to individuals working professionally in finance, economics, accounting, taxation, management, engineering or other related fields. It is for people who design, appraise, select, negotiate or finance projects, and for those who are interested in the financial, economic and social impacts of these projects.
