C.T. Bauer College of Business  > Energy Investment Analysis (EIA) (Finance), Certificate

Purpose

Students interested in developing superior insight into the economics of energy industry capital projects should consider this certificate.  Students currently working in or interested in working in project development, strategic planning, mergers and acquisitions, capital budgeting, business unit management or energy security analysis should find this certificate helpful to career development.

All courses assume a basic familiarity with the standard NPV/IRR methodology.  EIA focuses on special analytical challenges characteristic of the energy industry.  These include the tendency for energy projects to contain various embedded options, the capacity of many projects to support substantial amounts of project debt, the fact that energy projects typically are conceived within broader competitive strategies and the reality that many such projects are exposed to varied, severe political risks.  EIA will expose students to specific analytical frameworks and strategies that address these challenges, such as:  Real options, Competitive Strategy, Project Finance with Leveraged Economics, and market-based techniques to measure and adjust for political risk.
