Bush School Students London-Bound to Join EBRD for Summer Stints
Two first-year Bush School students will spend summer 2012 in London, UK for internships with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), thanks to support provided by the Mosbacher Institute under the Robert A. Mosbacher, Sr. Internships in International Trade program initiated by Director Jim Griffin.
On behalf of the Bush School and the program, Jody Ono (Assistant Director, Mosbacher Institute) arranged for first-year MPIA students Andrew Comstock and Jeniece Howe to intern with the EBRD’s Office of the Chief Economist. The Chief Economist is Erik Berglof, a finance and corporate governance specialist with whom Ono worked before joining the Bush School.
Andrew Comstock will make use of his strong background in economics and history to assist with empirical research projects on globalization, the history of trade liberalization, and the EBRD’s Life in Transition Survey (LiTS). Jeniece Howe will refine her excellent quantitative skills in two projects investigating 1) the determinants of private equity activity in central Europe; and 2) foreign exchange loans as a source of growth in the region and its likely impact on bank profitability.
