About the course

This module explores transportation and mobility infrastructure finance, including the structure and sources of financing, public and private financing models, tokenization, and finance in the digital era. After gaining a fundamental understanding of investable assets and the risk and reward framework, you will learn about public transportation financing — public-private partnerships, tax increment financing, and value capture finance — along with private mobility and transportation models. The module then examines blockchain finance in transportation and mobility, including the Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative (MOBI), before concluding with a look at the future of mobility and finance in the digital era.
