Description:

Prodigy Finance is a marketplace that provides a platform for alumni and other business school community stakeholders to invest directly into pools of high potential post graduate students for a financial return.

This innovative, borderless model makes loan financing more accessible to students from across the globe, while encouraging repayment, by leveraging the strength of the community. The Prodigy Finance programme is unusual in that it provides loans based on a predicted post-degree affordability rather than present-day salary.

Since 2007, Prodigy Finance has disbursed $78m to over 1900 students from 92 nationalities, with exceptional repayment rates. Prodigy Finance has existing programmes at top-ranked business schools, including INSEAD, Wharton, Columbia Business School, London Business School, Saïd Business School (Oxford University), Manchester Business School.
