Course Description This condensed course provides a solid understanding of impact investing, at the intersection of public policy, development, entrepreneurship, finance and law. We combine a theoretical approach, practical experience in emerging markets and case studies (education in Brazil, microfinance in Mexico and India, FinTech in Kenya and Brazil). Students are expected to develop personal projects in lieu of the exam (papers or business plans). Within the larger category of Sustainable Finance, Impact Investing is attracting growing interest from investors, academia and from the third sector. Impact investing allocates resources with a financial, social and environmental return, while the impact is both intentional and measured. We analyze the latest global trends in Impact Investing, its revolutionary proposal and its limitations. Financial innovation plays a key role in the impact agenda, through innovative financial instruments and through inclusive financial services boosted by FinTech.
