At the William Davidson Institute (WDI) at the University of Michigan (U-M), unlocking the power of business to provide lasting economic and social prosperity in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) is in our DNA. We gather the data, develop new models, test concepts and collaborate with partners to find real solutions that lead to new opportunities. This is what we mean by Solving for Business—our calling since the Institute was first founded as an independent nonprofit educational organization in 1992. Through our close relationship with the Ross School of Business and other schools within the U-M, we leverage academic knowledge, experience, and resources across many disciplines. Our consulting work focuses on developing, adapting, and applying sound business principles in four interrelated sectors necessary for a thriving economy: energy, professional education, healthcare, and finance, and offering performance measurement and improvement (PMI) services that span these sectors. WDI manages NextBillion, a leading blog that focuses on private sector innovations in LMICs; and WDI Publishing, which produces and distributes high-quality business cases and teaching materials for use around the globe.
