Curriculum

Impact Investing Practicum

Impact Investing Practicum is an eight week externship during which MBA teams complete a project with one of five impact investing firms arranged by Haas. Impact Investing Practicum helps firms develop solutions, creating value for the firm by leveraging the financial and social impact backgrounds and skills of Haas MBA students. For Haas students, Impact Investing offers un-matched experiential learning and exposure that we are able to arrange because of our unique thought leadership and history of student engagement and placement in this field. For this inaugural year, 8-12 FTMBA students will be selected.

Impact Investing Practicum is run in conjunction with the New Venture Finance course and is co-lead by Associate Professor Adair Morse and the Center for Social Sector Leadership's Faculty Director, Nora Silver.
