Students at Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver have access to a course that introduces them to social entrepreneurship through due diligence and analysis of microfinance loan applications. The course is delivered in collaboration with Deutsche Bank. Students evaluate the microfinance institutions to which Deutsche Bank loans money – the bank oversees an $80 million microfinance fund – as well as the individuals receiving the funds. They do this while spending time in the countries where the banks operate, working and meeting with individuals receiving the loans and learning more about their businesses and circumstances. Students also work with local not for profits.
