EFB106 Cost-Benefit Analysis for Project Appraisal

Unit synopsis

Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) is a key technique used to assess the relative desirability of competing alternative uses of limited resources. CBA has a well-established theoretical foundation and is a commonly used method of economic evaluation. CBA is used to appraise investment projects, socio-economic programmes and policies with the results from CBA providing decision makers with useful information to make informed decisions. This unit provides students with opportunities to understand, analyse and apply the analytical framework of CBA across a range of industries in the public and private sector.
