Social impact investments and corporate social responsibility outreach are often well intentioned, but their returns to the investor or targeted group may be variable, particularly in international contexts. This course develops an understanding of quantitative methods to measure social impact motivated by the particular challenges inherent in quantifying impact in a socio-economic setting. We will use previous studies to better understand what works and why, but also how impact was measured across different types of social investments.
