Dame Minouche Shafik (MSc Economics 1986) is Director of LSE.
An economist by training, Dame Minouche Shafik has spent most of her career straddling the worlds of public policy and academia. After completing her BSc in Economics and Politics at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, she took a MSc in Economics at LSE before completing a DPhil in Economics at St Antony’s College at the University of Oxford.
Her early research interests focused on the determinants of investment, the environment and economic growth, the economies of Middle East and North Africa, trade and migration.
During her 15 years at the World Bank, Minouche worked on its first ever World Development Report on the environment, designed reform programmes for transition countries in Eastern Europe, and developed proposals for economic integration in support of the Oslo peace process in the Middle East. She became the youngest vice-president in its history at the age of 36. In 2011, she joined the IMF as Deputy Managing Director with responsibility for many of the crisis countries in the Eurozone and the Arab countries in transition. After that she was appointed Deputy Governor of the Bank of England and sat on all of the Bank’s major policy committees (the Monetary Policy Committee, Financial Policy Committee, and Prudential Policy Committee). She also led the Fair and Effective Markets Review which put in place a set of reforms to tackle misconduct in financial markets. In September 2017, she returned to her alma mater LSE as Director, leading this world class university of social sciences.
