  • An intensive immersion into the microfinance industry and the operations of leading microfinance institutions. 
  • Addressing key challenges of doing business at the base of the financial sector, including succeeding in highly competitive financial sectors, maintaining a social focus in a commercial setting, and evolving products and delivery channels. 
  • Engaging participants in discussing the experience of leading institutions through the case method approach, pioneered by HBS. 
  • Reviewing some of the most recent developments in microfinance, such as the Compartamos IPO and a video on the operations at ACCION partner, Mibanco, in Peru.
