Wolverines Invest in Impact

Via PRNewswire Post: The University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business, a nationally and globally ranked top 25 school, has set itself up to be the educational leader within the impact investment space. Not merely focusing on social enterprise, U of M has developed coursework designed to provide MBA students with the tools and techniques to evaluate and finance social venture investments.

In addition to coursework, in 2009 the school  launched a student-run social venture fund to make investments in for-profit social ventures. The first investment is slated to be made this coming spring.
