Celebrating the growing number of Prodigy Finance-supported universities

Prodigy Finance international student loans

A couple of INSEAD students met over a drink, lamenting the difficulties of financing their studies towards a reputably high-earning degree at one of the world’s top institutions. They had been offered seats after a competitive application process, but local banks couldn’t fathom the value of their education.

If only there was a way to make it easier for international students to obtain post graduate student loans to pursue their MBAs at top universities.

In that moment, Prodigy Finance was born.

The initial seed money for Prodigy Finance came from a win at the 2006 International Venture Capital Investment Competition at INSEAD. By 2007, the company was formed and the first loans were issued.

INSEAD was the first business school to accept Prodigy Finance international student loans from qualified applicants, but the list of supported schools grew in 2012 to include London Business School, Vlerick Business School, Oxford Saïd Business School, and Cranfield School of Management.

Over the next five years, Prodigy Finance extended to new countries and new programmes, including engineering, law, and public policy.

Today, Prodigy Finance supports international students at 328 schools at 155 universities across the world. Recent additions to the portfolio include California Institute of Technology, Georgia Institute of Technology, Texas A&M University, Princeton University, Virginia Institute of Technology, Johns Hopkins University, and University of California Santa Barbara.

Prodigy Finance has helped over 10,300 students borrow approximately $505 million for graduate education. When those students meet their classmates at the local pub, they can concentrate on solving other problems and transforming the world in sustainable ways. 

Take a look at our journey to see just how far we've come:
