This course provides participants with a thorough framework for optimizing financial management and capital programming by applying proven investor engagement principles. The course also highlights ways to ensure assets are well managed in support of short and long-term strategic goals.  Participants will be encouraged to view airport financial management in a holistic way, noting the complex relationships that airports must navigate with air carriers and other aviation stakeholders, including the community and region and, in some cases, with shareholders.

Participants will be expected to challenge conventional thinking, with attention to the growing role of joint venture and concession partnership activities in delivering airport products and services, together with the potential use of private equity to deliver strategic investments. They will also be encouraged to become familiar with ICAO and ACI guidance on airport governance.
