MSM has designed one of the first courses in Europe that comprises an introduction to blended financial instruments, a critical knowledge area to take full advantage of a new generation of financial sources aimed at promoting private investment in emerging economies.
2015 has been a critical year for global economic development. Leaders from around the world adopted a global 2030 development agenda at a UN Summit in September 2015. The new global goals, called the Sustainable Development Goals, are ambitious and demand equal ambition in using the “billions” in Official Development Assistance to channel and crowd-in “trillions” in investments of all kinds: public and private, national and international. These goals will drive the global economic development agenda over the next 15 years.
Taking full advantage of blended financial instruments to finance business projects that will create jobs and boost economic development is a critical challenge for business people all around the world.
