Loïc Sadoulet is an Affiliate Professor of Economics at INSEAD. He has been teaching at INSEAD since 2000 in executive development programs, the MBA and executive MBA programs.
His research focuses on business development and expansion in emerging economies, both by local efforts and through entry by multinational companies. His interests lie in creating profitable agreements in environments with substantial information gaps. A major line of his research has concentrated on the design of financial services that can be extended (profitably) to traditionally neglected segments. Recently, he has also been involved in investigating ICT-based solutions to create new profitable markets for a range of activities.
Before joining INSEAD, Loïc worked for the World Bank; in a microfinance institution in Guatemala; at the European Centre for Advanced Research in Economics and Statistics at the Free University of Brussels; and at the Solvay Business School where he was twice rewarded by the Teacher of the Program Award by the part-time MBA students. He regularly consults for the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank on issues surrounding financial systems for the poor. He is also currently developing a project to provide financially-sustainable microfinance services in underserved areas of Brussels and Paris in partnership with large commercial banks.
He holds a Ph.D. in Economics from Princeton University.
