Madagascar Airports Project becomes a featured case in Harvard Business School’s new MBA course, Investing for Impact.
This month, Meridiam ‘s Madagascar Airports project became a featured case in Harvard Business School’s new MBA course, Investing For Impact.
Cases in this newly inaugurated course of study critically examine the logical and market case for a wide range of models, ranging from those that seek (and obtain) above market returns, to those designed to use the power of financial contracting to unlock innovation and help transform and scale the social sector.
Meridiam founder and CEO Thierry Déau attended the Meridiam Madagascar Airports Project case’s inaugural teaching as a featured guest both at Harvard Business and at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government where the case is being taught simultaneously in a joint MBA/policy program degree program.
The project, a complete rehabilitation of Madagscar's two largest airports through a public private partnership with Madagascar's State Ministry in charge of Presidential Projects, Territory and Equipment (MEPATE) together with consortium partners Aerosports de Paris Management, Bouygues Batiments International, and Colas, developed through Meridiam Infrastructure Africa Fund, launched in 2015 and provides an ideal teaching platform for sharing the firm's impact investment philosophy, commitment and strategies for successful implementation with a new generation potential impact actors.
