Business Strategies for Social Impact

Registration Link: REGISTER HERE

Start Date: January 1, 2018

Workload: Not Specified

Instructors: Katherine Klein and Christopher Geczy

Credentials: Klein is the Vice Dean of the Wharton Social Impact Initiative. A teacher at the program since 2004, she has taught MBA courses in knowledge management, performance management, and institutional transformation. Her research interests include social networking, teamwork, innovation implementation, and leadership.

Geczy has taught at Wharton for over 20 years and currently serves as the Academic Director for both the Jacobs Levy Equity Management Center for Quantitative Financial Research and the Wharton Wealth Management Initiative. He currently teaches graduate courses in impact investing and investment management at the school.

Graded: Students must successfully complete all assignments to get through the course.

Description: Not every investment is designed to maximize return. In impact investing, the goal is to promote initiatives that further social and environmental causes. Such investments are often made in emerging markets and cover life-and-death areas like agriculture, energy, healthcare, housing, and education. As a result, enterprise success is often measured differently in such ventures. So how can investors push social good and evaluate performance beyond beating market rate?

In this course, students will learn far more than financial fundamentals and strategic planning. It is also a leadership course, with cases and exercises designed to help students “cultivate purpose and inspires change, measure societal impact through evidence-based models, and invest in ventures effectively and meaningfully.”

Review: No reviews.

Additional Notes: This course is the fourth part of Wharton’s “Strategies for a Better World” specialization, which covers areas like corruption and social entrepreneurship. To learn more about this specialization and register for it, click here.
