The microcertificate designed to teach to the gap between technical and business decision making in the mining business

Executive Microcertificate in Economic Leadership

A microcertificate from BRIMM at the University of British Columbia is an excellent choice for a combination of formal recognition and practical learning focused on the unique challenges facing the mining and exploration industry. Our goal is to give students the tools for a career transition or vertical growth. The program’s structure and pace are up to you – you can choose your track (pick two if you want) and earn the micro-diploma on your time clock.

BRIMM107 will focus on tactics to increase information transparency in the concentrate trade, and how asymmetric information can result in complex deals that impact miners' profitability. We will talk about how off-take agreements are structured, making it challenging to price. We will end the day with solutions, both technical and relationship-based. We will quantify the value of fixing the problem and work out a couple of synthetic case studies.

The goal of this course is to help participants decide whether they want to pursue the full Executive Microcertificate, while still teaching core concepts that will be useful for any career in the industry as a stand-alone course. This is the foundation course for the program. We are going to tie together our 4 core themes – sustainability, exploration, mineral processing, and finance, into a common economic thesis.

BRIMM102 is all about the variables that go into mining finance. We are going to talk about modeling; we are going to talk about commodity prices and risk. Cost of capital will get covered, and how we compete for money, lag time, cycle time, and the core issues with building a balance sheet. Finally, we are going to talk about the difference between accounting and actual profits.
