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 $5 to $7 trillion is needed globally, with the developing world alone requiring over $2.5 trillion. With shrinking government and aid budgets and an overstressed NGO sector, impact investing is being turned to as the solution for unlocking capital and spurring innovation for sustainable development. To address the funding gaps facing the SDGs, the world needs leaders that are equipped with the knowledge and skills to create innovative solutions for financing social and environmental progress.

“The IIX Executive Certificate Program was a very unique opportunity to study with working professionals. I received much insight on the impact investing space, not just from the lectures, but also from my international coursemates.”

Myung-Hee Lee, Work Together Foundation

“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.”

Anusha Answani, Head Foundation

“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).

Adam Searle, Oxford University

“IIXII was a great learning experience which has significantly enhanced my understanding of the impact investing world. The 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.”

Deepali Khanna, Rockefeller Foundation

As a working professional, I am worried about time requirements. How much time do you estimate is needed to take this course?

We have structured this course to work with the pressing schedules of working professionals. The online portion of this course is designed to be completed over 6 weeks with approximately 5 hours of lectures and readings per week. A study week will be given after the initial six weeks to allow students to catch up on any missed material.

How many candidates are selected to participate in this course each year?

We purposely limit the participating group to around 15 students each year in order to ensure that each individual receives a high-quality learning experience and personalized attention from instructors. Additionally, this intimate size allows for strong and effective relationships to be fostered among participants.
