International Fellowship Program in Microfinance Management
The MFMI is currently not accepting new applications.
The MFMI has witnessed growing interest in microfinance among MBA students and faculty worldwide. Since its initial engagement with the university sector in 2003, the MFMI has learned of emerging academic programs in microfinance in literally all corners of the globe. An informal survey of U.S. and foreign universities offering graduate-level electives in microfinance revealed that such courses are full or oversubscribed and well-attended by MBA students.
The MFMI accordingly launched its International Fellowship Program in Microfinance Management (the "Fellows Program") to extend the availability of graduate courses in microfinance management worldwide. Fellowship candidates submit an individually tailored proposal to the MFMI for activities that advance postgraduate teaching and research in microfinance management. Candidates are awarded one-year fellowships (with the possibility of renewal) and join the MFMI’s existing international network of partner universities.
