Like any other business, construction business is exposed to a number of general and specific risks. In order to make sound decisions, it is important to learn how to conduct a high-quality and comprehensive analysis, identify risks, define risk mitigation approaches and assess the likelihood of arrears for a disbursed loan.

In this course, you will:

  • Study the key elements of MSME credit risk assessment.
  • Learn about the risks to which construction business and all its participants are exposed (including the general contractor and sub-contractors).
  • Study the key characteristics of the construction industry and get recommendations for minimising risks associated with financed projects.
  • Learn to conduct a SWOT-analysis giving consideration to the specifics of the construction industry.
  • Learn to use the recommendations to make sound decisions, prepare payment schedules and conduct monitoring.

The course consists of four lessons:

Lesson 1. Credit risks in construction business finance

Lesson 2. SWOT-analysis in construction

Lesson 3. Making decisions on financing construction business

Lesson 4. Monitoring in construction

This course can be taken as a stand-alone course. For more extensive study, we recommend the other two courses on construction topics: OL2104 Course “Analyzing businesses engaged in construction. Introduction”, OL2201 Course “Financial tools for business analysis in construction”.

The course targets a broad variety of experts and middle managers in financial institutions who serve clients operating in the construction industry.

At the end of the course, you will be asked to take a final test. Based on the test results, an electronic certificate of course completion will be generated.
