Impact Investing has gained substantial momentum in both, finance and social entrepreneurship communities over recent years. In addition student demand for course offers as well as supervision of theses on Impact Investing has risen steeply. The University of St. Gallen has responded to this demand by offering this course on Impact Investing.
The course, titled Impact Investing: Redefining the Meaning of Return is took place in April and May 2017 at Master level in the contextual study program of the University of St. Gallen.
To complement and consolidate classroom and team based learning, the group had the opportunity to meet and discuss with Impact Investing professionals at this event. Hosted by UBS Wealth Management's Sustainable Investing Advisory we welcomed speakers from UBS, the OECD and the Novartis Foundation who presented their work and experiences in the impact investing arena before all speakers joined a panel discussion answering to and discussion with the participants.
