Professor Andrés Velasco

We aim for impact, engaging policymakers from around the world.

Professor Andrés Velasco, Dean of the School of Public Policy

Andres-Velasco-foto-preferred-747x420-flippedProfessor Velasco was the Minister of Finance in Chile between 2006 and 2010 and held professorial roles at the Harvard Kennedy School and Columbia University.

The LSE School of Public Policy prepares the policy and political leaders of tomorrow to transform people and societies. The foundation is rigorous training in theory and quantitative methods. The outlook is global –reflected not only in the diverse national origins of our students and faculty, but in the places we look for policy challenges and solutions. We aim for impact, engaging policymakers from around the world. At a time when the practice of good governance is being eroded, experts derided and societies polarized, the LSE School of Public Policy is committed to the promotion of democratic values and the use of reasoned judgement in the pursuit of public service.

In a recent blog post, Professor Velasco outlined the necessary skills and requirements for public policy professionals globally.

For more information on Professor Velasco's appointment, please read the official LSE press release.
