Welcome

For students interested in launching a career that spans business and government, or wanting to help develop the most effective policies to make markets work better, M-RCBG offers a wide range of activities and supports. Courses taught by center-affiliated faculty provide students with critical concepts and skills. The center supports the student-run Business & Government Professional Interest Council (B&G PIC), helping members bring leaders from business and government to the school for seminars and small group meetings. It provides financial support for student scholarships, internships, special projects, conferences, and journals. The center offers weekly lunch seminars for students and others that showcase research in regulation, energy and electricity policy, and corporate governance and social responsibility by the world’s leading scholars. It offers "speed networking" sessions where the center's senior fellows provide students with career advice, and it supports senior fellow study groups for students. While most support goes to students enrolled in HKS, the center offers the John Dunlop prize to the undergraduate student who writes the best thesis about an issue at the business-government interface.
