34 free ways to become an impact pro

Growing interest in impact investing and sustainable business has sparked a mini-boom in teaching ways to build skills and knowledge on these topics.

Courses in impact investing are taking hold on business school campuses and online through a growing number of Massive Open Online Courses, or MOOCs (See, “New MOOCs teach the language of social finance”). Giselle Weybrecht over at the Primetime blog has rounded up 34 impact and sustainability courses (Part 1 and Part 2) beginning this fall that are free, online and available to anyone.

Passionate about role of private capital in financing solutions to the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals? Enroll in the World Bank’s Financing for Development: Unlocking Investment Opportunities. Want to learn how to mitigate the effects of climate while raising people out of poverty? Tune in to Cape Town University’s Climate Change Mitigation in Developing Countries. If you’re curious about how business can create value by reusing and recycling products, check out TU Delft’s Circular Economy: An Introduction.

The courses last between three and 14 weeks and ask for about three to eight hours a week.
