Imperial College offers a range of continuing professional development (CPD) training courses through the Centre for Professional Development. These provide a comprehensive guide to understanding the main factors involved in securing the financial support for mining projects through equity, debt, or entering into a joint venture. This involves addressing the underlying technical principles, applying these to mineral projects and demonstrating how these influence the financial modelling.
The programme attracts a wide international participation from professionals from the financial institutions as well as the minerals industry. In addition to the long-standing ‘Introduction to Mining for Bankers’ course that runs in July each year, we also run the Metals and Energy Finance course.
