Award: Fulbright-British Friends of Harvard Business School MBA
Award Host Institution: Harvard University
Home Institution: London School of Economics
Level of Study: Master's Degree
Discipline: Business Administration
Robert will study for an MBA at Harvard Business School. He hopes, amongst other things, to consider how businesses can be both high-performing and support the achievement of wider public policy aims. This follows a degree in Political Economy from the LSE and early career at HM Treasury on the Civil Service fast stream, advising on public spending strategy and fiscal policy. Most recently, over the EU Referendum period, Robert worked in the Chancellor’s private office. As a British student, he is excited to be studying business administration in the United States at a time when in many ways both countries face comparable economic opportunities and challenges. He hopes that he might be able to bring some examples of best practice back. The Fulbright Programme not only opens up this possibility, but also allows it to be pursued in the spirit of strengthening cultural ties.
