Fundamentals of Impact Investing: A View from the Field
Spring 2017 Course
February 23rd to June 8th, 2017
Over the years, impact investing has attracted an increasing amount of capital, estimated to reach US$1 trillion by 2020, in addition to a diverse array of stakeholders beyond entrepreneurs and investors. What will your catalytic role be in this movement?
This 14- week course will help you build your knowledge and insights on Impact Investing through a series of weekly interactive webinars. Additionally, you will be invited to join us in Singapore for the final week of the program to gain practical field experience and expand your global network during an on-site ‘immersion week’. Develop both a breadth and depth of knowledge as world-class field practitioners and academics help you explore impact investing through various lenses. You will emerge from this program with both a certificate in impact investing and a greater understanding of your role in the ecosystem.

“I would recommend this course as crucial to any individual striving to lead in the impact investment space. The course challenged my preconceptions and previously gained knowledge on the sector, and encouraged me to think critically about how we achieve maximum impact. IIXII allowed me to learn about the space from multiple perspectives (e.g. from an enterprise, from an investor, from an intermediary point of view).
“I was so glad to be part of this inaugural program and learn directly from experts—better than any book on the topic could ever be! The learning was practical and directly applicable.”
“IIXII was a great learning experience which has significantly enhanced my understanding of the impact investing world. The 14-week journey with the best team of professors, and with rich academic and field experience has given me the confidence to apply the learning to my work.”
