Like many busy practitioners, you probably often think “It would be great, if someone investigated a bit more on this!”. Like many motivated students, you probably often think "It would be great, if my research could have a concrete impact in improving the lives FREP precisely aims to bring together excellent graduate students with microfinance organizations to answer their research needs.
UMM has many years of experience supporting student research on microfinance related topics. Among others, we have selected, guided and funded students from Université Libre de Bruxelles, University of Cambridge, Bocconi University, Toulouse Business School, Freie Universität Berlin, LSE and University of Oxford, who have worked on microfinance market research, business model validation, social performance and impact measurement, etc.
