The first series of EIB courses for students from Dresden University’s School of International Studies started last Friday 26 April 2019 with a seminar by Goetz von Thadden (EIB) about the EIB’s history, role and missions.

Three other seminars will follow between 10 May and 14 June. The first two will be taught in Dresden by Martin Humburg (EIB) and Christa Karis (EIF) while the last one about the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) will be taught in Luxembourg during a field visit by EFSI’s Managing Director, Wilhelm Molterer.

The Institute organises and coordinates courses provided by EIB Group staff on the EIB’s Group role, missions and activities in many European universities. A typical course is structured over three or four sessions covering the EIB Group’s (EIB and EIF) role and strategy, financing products or project cycles.

Specific courses may be provided on project finance, microfinance and inclusive finance, infrastructure financing and management. In some cases, courses may be organised at the EIB premises.
