Impact Investing Practicum is an eight week consultation (128 hours) offered to impact investing firms by the Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley. Impact Investing helps firms develop solutions, creating value for the firm by leveraging the financial and social impact backgrounds and skills of Haas MBA students. 8 FTMBA students were selected for the 2018 inaugural year.
This applied innovation course is co-taught by Adair Morse, Associate Professor, Haas Finance Group, and Nora Silver, Faculty Director and Adjunct Professor of the Center for Social Sector Leadership; with programmatic management by Seren Pendleton-Knoll, Associate Director of the Center for Responsible Business. The practicum is run in conjunction with the second half of the Haas course New Venture Finance, taught by Adair Morse, which educates students in venture landscape, raising finance, and financial contracts and notes.
