2012 PIAR at Queen’s University

From June 25 to July 20, 2012, Queen’s University hosted the 13th Program on Investment Appraisal and Risk Analysis. We were fortunate to have executives join us from the following governments and organizations: Ministry of Finance-Kenya, Ministry of Energy-Ghana, Ministry of Trade, Industry, Regional Integration and Employment-The Gambia, Volta River Authority, Faisal Islamic Bank of Cyprus, Saudi Industrial Development Fund, Eastern Africa Power Pool, African Management Services Company Ltd, Optimal Solutions Group, LLC, and Eastern Mediterranean University.

Despite a rigorous curriculum, the participants were unfailingly diligent. Their outstanding performance set the bar high for future programs, and allowed them to leave Kingston with the operational skills to apply techniques of finance, financial modeling, applied economic analysis, risk analysis and risk management.

Some of the highlights this year include: seminars conducted by distinguished lecturers, such as Professor Harberger of UCLA, luncheons with the faculty, staff, and students of the Queen’s Economics Department, the 1000 Islands Cruise, and the Niagara Falls trip.

We want to again thank the participants for making the 2012 Program on Investment Appraisal and Risk Analysis such a memorable one.
