Mark studied the Masters of Social Impact
“I really enjoyed how this course complemented the work I’m doing on the ground in the Social Entrepreneurship and Economic Development (SEED) unit at World Vision. Having worked in the corporate sector for 7 years prior to transitioning into the NFP sector, this course has provided the theoretical and scholarly background for our work which hopes to achieve both financial and social impact.”
Mark left, Accenture as a Management Consultant in their Strategy and Change Management division to work for World Vision Australia almost seven years ago. He now oversees economic development programs across the Asia Pacific.
“I now lead the Social Entrepreneurship and Economic Development (SEED) unit at World Vision Australia: a team of specialists who research, design and provide technical help to the implementation of private sector and community economic development approaches throughout World Vision’s programs internationally, but with a focus upon Asia Pacific. Our portfolios of work is broad and includes, agricultural value chain and market systems development with smallholder farmers, women’s economic empowerment and savings, microfinance and financial inclusion.
My undergraduate degrees were business orientated focusing only upon financial returns so this course has really helped fill a gap in my own professional development.”
