·         Learn from the Best in the Field

FMS training instructors are leading practitioners in the impact space and work with organizations that include Omidyar Network, Pi Investments, Cordes Foundation, Accion Venture Lab, and Unreasonable Group. Through the combination of lectures and actionable projects, participants walk away with a comprehensive understanding of who the key players in the impact sector are, how to design an innovative impact-focused business model, and what it takes to implement and scale a social venture.

·         Become a Fellowship Candidate

After completing the intensive, two-week training, FMS participants have the opportunity to become candidates for fellowship positions with social ventures, accelerator programs, or impact funds. Typically full or part-time positions, fellowships are aimed at scaling or improving existing processes, addressing pressing business development or sales and marketing needs.
Since 2011, FMS fellows have worked to grow and improve processes for over 100 social enterprises around the world during field assignments based in countries such as Brazil, India, The Netherlands, Ecuador, Vietnam, Tanzania, South Africa, and Lebanon.

“FMS is by far the most valuable thing I did during my entire time at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey (MIIS). In many ways, it’s like a highly-condensed specialized MBA degree.” ~ Jeanette Pelizzon
