Prodigy Finance Partners with CommonBond to Expand MBA Loan Options for International Students Studying in the US

International students can take out MBA loans at a number of US b-schools, including Wharton, Boston University, Vanderbilt, and more

Prodigy Finance, which provides loans to international students studying in the US, has partnered with CommonBond, a US-based lending platform.

The new partnership will expand MBA loan options for international students doing their MBAs at a select group of US business schools.

Specifically, international students who use the CommonBond platform to look for student loans will be able to secure an MBA loan from Prodigy Finance. Prodigy Finance will determines the terms and conditions.

"International MBA students in the U.S. face a unique set of challenges in financing their degrees, largely due to the shortage of funding options from traditional financial institutions,” according to David Klein, CommonBond’s CEO.

Indeed, most non-US residents will not qualify for federal loans, and usually need a resident co-signer for private loans.

“We understand firsthand just how difficult it is to finance an international MBA, which is why we launched Prodigy Finance eight years ago as a way of offering borderless loans to international MBA students while enabling investors to earn a competitive financial and a social return by investing in these students,” according to Cameron Stevens, Prodigy Finance's CEO.
