Tailored Executive Education in Finance

Tailored Executive Education in Finance

29 September 2014

Dr Jozef Drienko and Dr Phong Ngo, from the Research School of Finance, Actuarial Studies & Statistics, delivered a course in Finance and Investment Decisions to a group of government officers from the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID), a division of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). The Australian Government is revisiting its approach to development finance, including by ensuring the development architecture and development institutions are fit for purpose. The Government has also stated its intention to promote the greater use of multi-stakeholder partnerships, especially with the private sector, to achieve development outcomes. In order to understand how the private sector can deliver on the government's economic diplomacy objectives, an understanding of why and how financial decisions are made is essential. Such decisions apply, for example, to managing funds, structuring financial instruments and public-private partnerships. Dr Drienko and Dr Ngo therefore developed and delivered a tailored course to help participants understand, value and select optimal investment and financing choices in an effort to achieve a predetermined goal with an emphasis on practical application relating to development projects.
