Liesl Riddle

Liesl Riddle, associate dean of MBA programs and associate professor of international business, was featured in an Aug. 31 Reuters article, “For expat Africans, patriotism may pay.”

“ ‘Diaspora investing exists in the space that’s between investing and charity,’ says Liesl Riddle, who runs the Diaspora Capital Investment Project at George Washington University.  She said her researchers have surveyed many different disapora communities globally and discovered that they are typically motivated to invest in their countries of origin ‘for emotional or social status reasons, not just to make profit.’ ”
