Empowering Stakeholders to Participate in the
Impact Investing Space
Today’s world recognizes that philanthropy alone does not have the capacity to achieve sustainable development across the globe. As a result, members of the public, private and philanthropic sector are coming together to expand the resources that are available to address today’s most pressing social and environmental issues. Impact investing, now over US$114 billion in market size, plays a crucial role in this movement and has transformed traditional business models and financial equations to generate both financial value alongside social and environmental returns.
Join the IIX Impact Institute to gain the skills and expertise necessary to play a catalytic role in this movement. Become an impact leader in your community!

“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.”
