The Micro, SME & Housing Finance Summer Academy
20 Years of Inclusive Finance Summer Academy!
Developing finance institutions are undergoing rapid change. Many of them face increasing competition, tougher regulation or are branching out to embrace new market segments. The Inclusive Finance Summer Academy seeks to equip participants with profound technical know-how in one of five subjects areas (operational risk management, SME banking, rural finance, housing finance and digital finance), visit major German institutions related to your elective, and develop a better understanding of current trends in developing communities.
