Rethinking Financial Inclusion: Innovation for Policy and Practice helps public, corporate and NGO leaders like you design financial products for underserved settings based on a keen understanding of both your client and the broader environment.

Along with industry leaders, Harvard faculty chairs Rohini Pande and Asim Khwaja will guide you through this rigorous one-week program using a Smart Policy Design and Implementation framework. This is a structured approach for evidence-driven innovation, one that informs the design of financial products in a world where technology and client demands change rapidly.

You'll immerse yourself in an intellectually stimulating environment with peers from around the world. A combination of lectures, case studies and group exercises illuminate theory, provide cutting-edge research and enable you to engage directly with real-world issues.

    The curriculum will cover a wide range of topics, including:

    • Using cutting-edge empirical methods to encourage innovation in financial inclusion
    • Examining innovative techniques—including analytics and big data—for product and policy design
    • Establishing successful feedback loops that can lead to better-designed solutions
    • Improving financial inclusion through digitized systems of social protection and public-private partnerships
