The Center supports graduate education in transportation P3 policy and practice through the George Mason University (schar.gmu.edu).
The Schar School of Policy and Government offers a graduate seminar in infrastructure public-private partnerships (P3s) taught by Center Director Jonathan Gifford.
The course provides a comprehensive review of the economic, financial and governance issues surrounding infrastructure P3s. It includes U.S. and international experience with P3s in transportation and social infrastructure (e.g., schools, hospitals, public buildings). The course also includes evaluation frameworks such as Value for Money (VfM) analysis and financial models as well as guest lectures by P3 experts and global P3 concessionaires.
