New in 2017, the Rustandy Center for Social Sector Innovation is offering Booth students another opportunity to learn about impact investing through Perspectives in Impact Investment: A Series on Leveraging Capital for Social Good.
Through the four-part series, students will learn from the center's newest Impact Investor in Residence (IIIR) Priya Parrish, '09, as she provides an overview and a deeper dive into impact investing, including information on career paths, public and private markets, and where the field is heading. The series will also include guest speakers and a panel of asset owners and investors.
Perspectives in Impact Investment is another resource for Booth students participating in the MBA Impact Investing Network and Training (MIINT) program or UNC Invest for Impact program, during which students can build a strong foundation and core skills in investing.
