This is not the current course catalog

Class Details

The concept and practice of investing to create positive social or environmental impact has existed for over 3,000 years. Most of the early participants in the field were faith based investors, looking to align their investing with their religious values. Over time the concept has broadened its focus to include societal and environmental change. The investors have also changed with the addition of for-profit companies, large institutions, money managers, financial advisors, and wealthy individuals. The field has seen exceptional growth not just in terms of participants, but also capital with over $22 trillion invested. The growth has meant an increased opportunity to have a meaningful impact on the world’s most pressing problems. Over the course students will gain an understanding of the impact investing sectors, concepts, strategies and techniques. The class will be broken up into the four sections and will include reading materials, case studies and weekly industry expert speakers. The class will conclude with a group project.
