Anna Konate, Executive MSc in Social Business and Entrepreneurship 2021
Location: Geneva, Switzerland
Current role: Head of Operations and Finances, The Sanitation and Hygiene Fund
"After several years in the development sector, I was looking ahead to the next step, preferably in an intersection of the public and private where innovative funds and financing could help address social issues and create tangible impact on peoples’ lives. As a passionate women’s empowerment advocate, this was an absolute must for me.
I was looking for a programme which would provide me with a better understanding of impact financing and measurement and how private capital can change the narrative for our world, and this is exactly what the EMSBE did. It offers students high quality classes with extraordinary professors, and being with such amazing classmates from different countries, backgrounds and mindsets also made this experience priceless. So if you want to be part of the new generation of leaders, managers, social entrepreneurs who want to change the world, this programme is for you."
