In this course titled Advanced Project Finance Financial Modeling, the Institute for Public-Private Partnerships, A Tetra Tech Company (IP3) focuses exclusively on the techniques of building, interpreting, and analyzing a financial model using MS Excel®. The development and analysis of financial models are an essential component of a public-private partnership (PPP) and project finance transaction. Financial models are necessary to evaluate the economics of a project, for negotiations among stakeholders, and are a key component of the final documentation.

While the development and analysis of project finance models are often delegated to external financial advisors, this course, which builds upon the introductory and intermediate project finance financial modeling courses, is intended to provide the required tools to develop bankable project finance models consistent with international best practices.
