Prodigy Finance was started by three INSEAD MBA graduates who experienced firsthand the difficulties of financing an international MBA. In 2007, they set out to solve this problem.

Our innovative platform offers loans to international postgraduate students attending top universities. Through our community platform, alumni, impact investors, and other private qualified entities invest in tomorrow's leaders whilst earning a financial and social return.

To date our investors have invested in over 4,000 students from 115 nationalities with a repayment rate in excess of 99%.
