Which B-Schools for "impact investing"? [#permalink] New post 06 Oct 2013, 23:02
Are you interested in "impact investing" or ethical/social/environmental friendly investing? Does anyone have any recommendations of top B-Schools having a particular strong emphasis on this?

I wish to further develop a career path working with "impact investing" (II) at a managerial level. Currently im working as an Analyst in a pioneering II/PE firm.

So far I know that Stanford has a strong focus via their "Center for Social Innovation", while Oxford have their Skoll institute. Moreover, I have noticed that Cornell has a strong focus on sustainability via their MBA while INSEAD have their "Social Innovation Center".

E.g. does Wharton/Booth/CBS/Harvard or other top B-School move in the same direction, and how do they do it?

It should not be mistaken that I wish to work in the fast moving industry of for-profits doing ethical/social/environmental investments (Not work in an NGOs), and as such I am aiming to develop further knowledge especially in finance so that I can apply this and other business principles. This also may imply that I will have to work a couple of years in IB/PE/VC/Consulting to aquire the necessary tools to get a position.

As I have a quite diverse background (experience from a major DFI, as a financial reporter and with a startup - in addition to being Norwegian) I belive my profil might be attractive for many B-Schools and therefore see no reason to leave any Ultra Elites or Elites out. But, a prerequisite is that they provide both courses/academic experience in this new and upcoming field within finance.
