M-RCBG Senior Fellows are distinguished professionals from government and/or business who come to HKS to address issues at the interface of the public and private sectors: regulation, corporate governance, and the role of government in the changing global economy. Senior Fellows strengthen the connection between theory and practice, offering both faculty and students insights to the nature of social problems and their most practical solutions.

In addition to undertaking independent research projects that culminate in a journal article or book, Senior Fellows lead Study Groups for HKS students.

Learn more about the 2018-19 M-RCBG Senior Fellows’ upcoming Study Groups below. More Study Group sessions will be announced throughout the year. Registration is not necessary and all are welcome to attend.
