Fletcher thesis: Foreign Exchange Risk in Microfinance: Why Microfinance Institutions Fail to Hedge

Why I chose Fletcher: When I decided to apply to graduate schools after my business consulting and development experience, I was looking for a program that would enable me to incorporate my experience in the private sector with knowledge on sustainable development. While considering various traditional MBA and development programs, I was fascinated by the unique approach of the Master of International Business at Fletcher. The approach combines training in business management with international affairs and development was ideal for me. I couldn’t find any other program that offers a curriculum as balanced and wide-ranging as that of Fletcher.
