Course Description

Talking about the potential of impact investing is one thing, unleashing the potential of impact investing is another. To achieve the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations it is estimated that up to $7 trillion is needed globally. With shrinking government and aid budgets and an overstressed NGO sector, impact investing and innovative finance are being turned to as solutions for unlocking new sources of capital and spurring innovation for sustainable development. As the impact investing market surpasses $228 billion, these sectors are increasingly calling for leaders who are equipped with the interdisciplinary knowledge and skills to further advance financial innovations for social and environmental progress.

This unique blended learning program brings together a cohort of executives from across sectors and geographies to learn a breadth and depth of knowledge from key thought-leaders and practitioners. Participants will graduate with a strong understanding of the latest breakthroughs in the field of impact investing and the skillset to lead a career which drives progress towards the SDGs through financial innovation.

Past participants include representatives of UBS, PwC, BNP Paribas, Rockefeller Foundation, and the Asian Development Bank, among others.
