This is a very awesome course. Although it is a relatively new field for me, I have really learned so much about social impact and investment in general. I really hope to put this to good use.


Great course; very insightful look into how business and other organizations can effect positive social impact in the course of achieving their objectives and completing routines.

Course is a very informative and helpful overview of the many ways companies are incorporating social responsibility into their business decisions, practices and policies. The material was very good overall and the presentations were easy to follow and relevant. I would have liked the course to go a bit deeper into certain areas but perhaps the online version doesn't allow for that. Overall, a solid foundation on the topic.

Excellent course except for module 4. The professor in that module talks about too many things at the same time, without taking into consideration that many of the financial terms being used, requires some certain knowledge of the financial world. I would recommend to do an intermediate module to understand better what he is talking about, and also perhaps, to upgrade the lecture slides.

A must for anyone interested in learning about the intersection between business and society. This course goes beyond making a superficial business case for social impact and provides examples and an approach on how to do it for your organization. The financial part may get too technical and the second faculty member is a little difficult to follow. But overall, I will recommend it.

Great course. I only rated it 4-star because the final week is quite inaccessible for those who don't have finance background. It's got very interesting contents and I'm sure it's packed with useful information about return on social impact investing but I just couldn't grasp most of what was presented because the prof used a lot of esoteric words and he went on at a fast pace.

Very interesting the first three modules on doing impact business. The last module mixes very high-level, for beginners comments on private equity impact investing, with an excess in statistics in the last lesson on retail funds. In general, data are now outdated.

Very interesting topic and good instructors. Thank you for putting it together!

My only criticism goes to the fact that, in the last module, the instructor speaks a bit too fast. It was way too hard to follow, as a beginner learner and non-native English speaker.

This was a great introductory course to the world of impact investing. I learned a lot about leading with purpose, how to convince others of the benefits of impact investing, measuring impact and understanding the landscape of impact investing today.

創建者 Andrzej K


the course is ok. it gives a basics for undertandings of social investements, although i had a feling tha tthe course is designed for persons involved in financial servies already. I would seek for something even more basic.

創建者 Kyle H


Great course. The Impact Investing section was good, but it breezed through a number of stats without really explaining the context well. It would have been stronger if this section had just summarized the key takeaways.

創建者 Faith V T


Great course with the basics - the final module felt very technical and dense, but was probably so because I have no background in corporate finance. overall a good course that provided fundamentals of social financing

創建者 Leonel S


Excellent course. Very valuable information The two teachers are very good, however, Professor Klein is very clear. She knows how to transmit her knowledge in a very appropriate way. Congratulations and thanks.

First two weeks were OUTSTANDING!!!!!! I personally found the last week to be a bit overly detailed for the scope of the course. But overall I loved this and learnt a lot. Thank you!

Very interesting course, however the Impact Investment module was sometime a bit too technical which prevented from understanding the entire outcome of some experiments or studies.

創建者 Erdi T


The first three weeks were great, useful and right to the point.

But the fourth week is too "technical" The language is too heavy and I didn't find it useful

創建者 Paulo R V P


In my opinion, in this beta test, the course is not yet ready to be offered to the public, since there is a video that has not yet finished its edition.

創建者 Kyounghye C P


Great overview of business strategies for social impact. For the impact investing (module 4), the data definitely need updating (2016 data in 2020?)

創建者 Alejandro C L


Tremendo curso, bastante interesante aunque a veces requería conocimientos previos para comprender ideas, especialmente por la última semana.

創建者 Elke R


Great introduction, definitely provided me with a better understanding of where organizations can have impact, and how to measure it.

創建者 Danille J


This course made me think much deeper about purpose and passion and how I'd like to contribute to greater social impact in my career.

創建者 Karl L A M Y


SO much leanings taking this course. It is certainly beneficial to my current and future work as Human Resource practitioner.

創建者 Palash J

創建者 Evgeniya P


Katherine part was very interesting and I couldn't stop watching the videos. But the last week was a bit disappointing.

創建者 Kelvin K F


The examples from CEO's was inspiring and got my attention.

Lessons were very practical and I could easily relate with.

創建者 Yvonne L


I learned a lot. The part about impact investing was a bit too complicated for me not having a financial background.

創建者 Alfredo R


Some concepts were a bit complex for an online course or needed to be more interactive, mainly the las module
