Ivey School (U of Western Ontario)



Case Study Sector


A nonprofit organization, partnered with a microfinance organization, would send undergraduate students from a business school to teach entrepreneurship in Third World countries: Kenya, India, and South Africa. The case requires students to develop fairly straightforward cash budgets and to consider sensitivity analysis based on exchange rate fluctuations. Students are introduced to the concept of microfinancing as an effective tool for improving the socio-economic status of entrepreneurs in Third World countries. Students are encouraged to think about relevant issues in gaining sponsorship for a nonprofit venture.
