What We Do As A Club?
SMU Sustainable Investment focuses on educating students about sustainable investing through collaborations with companies. Moreover, we conduct introductory classes for students to get better knowledge about impact investing and also host various case competitions with our partners. Additionally, we give opportunity to our members to publish research papers and also host networking events so that our members could get insights of impact investing in real world!
Our weekly masterclasses form the backbone of our club, curated with the help from faculty advisors, industry professionals and supported by secondary research. These education sessions are developed around the impact ecosystem, impact investing tools and measurement frameworks across various sectors.
To continually engage our members, SMU II also organizes external events, such as case competitions to provide members with greater exposure and opportunities to showcase their passion.
Our club gives a platform to members to able to work on research papers with industry professionals in the sustainable finance space. The most recent one was the TRIVE White paper, which was focused on Technology in Alternative Foods.
The purpose of networking is to meet business partners and people in person. SMU SI aims to increase the connections of our members and help them gain useful insights and build the relationship.
