Montpellier Business School would happily present the Microfinance in Developed Countries Chair. The Chair Holder, Dr Anastasia Cozarenco, will share her experience, how the project arose, leading to the creation of this Chair in 2018. She will also explain why the chair recently broadened its scope, research and teaching activities to become the Social & Sustainable Finance Chair.

Building on the Chair’s activities, Montpellier Business School launched its Yunus Centre for Social Business and Financial Inclusion in 2019. Dr Elsa Kassardjian, the Development Manager, will talk about the challenges and opportunities of creating and maintaining such a Centre. She will present in particular a project funded by the European Commission, MBS’s Yunus Centre is involved in.
