Attention professors, lecturers, teaching staff – The IBLI case study is now available

MVI_7986.MOV.Still001.- editedpngAre you looking for new and inspiring content for your MBA and MA students, either in a microfinance course or in a course covering management of international organizations and NGOs?  Or do you lead a class dealing with social entrepreneurship, financial services for the bottom of the pyramid (BoP), or simply introductory finance classes dealing with insurance, etc.? If yes or even maybe, please take a moment to review the newly published IBLI Case Study website, which also includes essential materials such as a Teaching Note and video.  All available at no cost once you register on our site (to ensure confidentiality of teaching resource guides).

Through the IBLI Case Study, we hope to make your students to think critically and creatively about extending financial services to the last frontier of the developing world.  As researchers and the creators of IBLI, we have struggled with the challenges that have presented themselves while trying to launch an index-based livestock insurance product to those who need it most and this case study embodies one of the toughest dilemmas yet: to grow IBLI. But when and how should this growth take place?
