    "The way this course is designed is really ambitious—but it’s so valuable. Having access to so many different experts—all of whom are active in real projects is a great way to learn. And a lot of that is in the little things that come up when you get the chance to really discuss topics in depth."

    Hassan Sako

    Manager – Regional Leader, Deloitte, Côte d’Ivoire.

    "I think the infrastructure and project finance world has been missing a course like this. This mix of practical and theoretical is great—I’ve done other courses which just gave me a bunch of videos to watch—there was no interaction. It wasn’t easy to fit around my workload as I’m already busy—but it was worth it. I look at projects differently now."
