The Professional Certificate in Municipal Finance, offered by the Center for Municipal Finance at the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy and the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, is a three-day program geared towards urban planners and related professions, providing them with an understanding of public finance, an overview of how finance instruments are implemented, and a framework for how to evaluate them. Participants will learn the general and prevailing models that local governments use to meet their finance needs. They will also learn about the benefits and challenges of different financing approaches, economic considerations, cost-of-capital analysis, the typology of options within each model, and other core principles.
