A unique opportunity to expand strategic thinking. A proven case-study approach. An energized environment in which to consider your role in finance at the base of the pyramid. The seven-day Harvard Business School-ACCION Program on Strategic Leadership in Microfinance offers finance leaders from around the world an exceptional opportunity to connect with peers while engaging with some of the HBS faculty's foremost thinkers in business strategy and management.
Building on two highly successful years, the 2008 course offers for the first time an expanded curriculum for all financial institutions – from microfinance specialists to conventional commercial banks – engaged in expanding finance to underserved clients around the world. In 2006 and 2007, HBS and ACCION brought together microfinance practitioners from 33 countries – including 36 CEOs from some of the field’s leading microfinance institutions.
“The high quality of the materials, of the teaching, the participation of the participants, everything contributed to create a very stimulating environment for learning.”
“Excellent opportunity to understand the global state of the industry and what is possible.”
“The experiences in the case, the wealth and competency of the lectures and contents of subject matter were not only relevant but very inclusive and gave me good tools to do a better job.”
Participants in the 2008 program can expect to leave the course with an enhanced perspective on their leadership roles as well as insights on commercial finance that will shape their strategies in a rapidly changing industry.
