Caroline Lucas (MBA/MS 2019) co-founded the University of Michigan International Investment Fund (IIF), the first student-run to invest in small- and medium-enterprises outside the United States. After studying international policy at Chapman University and working for a financial inclusion nonprofit in Washington, D.C., Lucas served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Armenia.
