Hinrich Global Trade Leader
Georgetown Master of Science in Foreign Service, Class of 2022
“The Hinrich Global Trade Leader Scholarship will allow me to bridge the gap between policy formulation and economic research through its support of further education and its broader network.”
Program Director of the Hinrich Foundation, Alex Boome, welcomes the new scholars:
Our new Global Trade Leaders are as diverse as trade itself, yet bound by the unwavering belief in the value that mutually beneficial global trade can bring to society.
Sugandha is our first scholar from a family-owned India factory, while Ioannis is our first scholar from Greece. Their expertise ranges from banking and safety footwear manufacturing to agricultural commodities imports and industrial oil trade. Both have a deep-rooted practical understanding that firms must balance the economic, social and environmental aspects of business for trade to be sustainable.
Program Director of the Hinrich Foundation, Alex Boome, welcomes the new scholar:
“Hannah’s experience covers trade, business and policy in the key capitals and financial centers in the East and West – from Beijing and Washington, D.C., and from New York to Hong Kong. Her exposure to the world’s two largest economies and trading partners, coupled with her passion for Mandarin, will serve her well as she delves deep into all that the MSFS program has to offer. I look forward to watching her growing contribution to the betterment of humanity as she helps advance mutually beneficial global trade and understanding.”
