 Possess the skills to know how to source and apply knowledge in this complex multi-disciplinary field
 Impart a familiarity with the measurement of the key indicators of infrastructure investment, public procurement, industry structure and performance, enterprise efficiency and the operation of capital markets
 Possess the skills necessary for the practical application of industry knowledge in both the public and private sectors
 Understand the important relationship between procurement, industry economics, investment, public policy and regulation in the various infrastructure industry sectors, the differences between sectors and projects and the broad implications of efficiency to national and regional economic performance and ultimately, community living standards
