Three-day program in New York City will focus on infrastructure and social services

January 4, 2017


WASHINGTON -- The Institute for Public-Private Partnerships, A Tetra Tech Company (IP3), will, in partnership with the Cornell Program in Infrastructure Policy (CPIP), host a three-day executive focused program on public-private partnerships (PPPs). The program will take place in New York City from April 26-28, 2017 as part of Cornell University’s Executive Education Program.

PPPs have emerged as critical tools in the design, construction, finance, operation, and maintenance of infrastructure facilities. They are used in a wide range of economic sectors and countries. The Cornell University-IP3 PPP Executive Education Program offers a premier, executive-level, intensive three-day course for public- and private-sector leaders, managers, and policymakers to learn how to successfully implement PPPs.

This Executive Education Program is focused on sharing the best practices and lessons learned from successful international PPP projects across all industry sectors. The course will cover the planning, contracting, financing, and management of PPPs, including looking at project bankability, finance sources and credit enhancements.

Participants will learn from case-study examples of both successful and unsuccessful PPPs. They will also form new contacts, connections and collaborations with other motivated participants through shared sessions and networking opportunities.

The Program will enhance a practitioner’s ability to structure stand-alone PPPs while utilizing global best practices. It will achieve this by enhancing the capacity of public- and private-sector leaders, managers, and practitioners to successfully plan, structure, and operate infrastructure PPPs. The Program will discuss PPPs in both the emerging and developed economy setting.

The PPP Executive Program will be taught by world-renowned academics researching the PPP space and by industry practitioners with extensive experience in delivering projects as PPPs.
