Course Objectives

The course focuses on the business of structured finance (project/infrastructure finance and asset backed securitization) from the financial intermediaries’ standpoint.
The course pays constant attention to the practical aspects of each structured finance transaction. The repeated use of case studies and of a business game allows students to link the theoretical background to real-life situations. The focus is on the deal structuring process and on the assessment of the financial sustainability of the transaction.
