The Sustainable and Impact Finance initiative at Berkeley Haas creates leaders who use impact investing and sustainable finance to drive positive change and opportunities. Starting with the nation’s first student managed socially responsible investment fund in 2008, this initiative builds on over ten years of thought leadership at Berkeley Haas.
In a recent Wall Street Journal article, Haas was ranked the top graduate business school in sustainable finance and investing. The school is a pioneer in social impact investing, with efforts beginning during the late 1950s when late Dean Budd Cheit launched the first courses on corporate social responsibility.
Housed within the Institute for Business and Social Impact, this initiative brings together students, faculty and industry professionals to drive research, education and leadership in the growing field of sustainable and impact finance.
