Albert Douglas Abeiku Hudson
Albert is a second-year student in the Master of Science in Foreign Service (MSFS) program and the 2018 recipient of the MSFS Africa Scholarship. He is pursuing Global Business and Finance concentration and also hopes to expand his studies into the field of international development in his second year. His academic interests include international economics, project finance, corporate finance, and investments in emerging markets.
Before MSFS, Albert graduated from University of Ghana Business School (UGBS), where he studied Business Administration with a focus in Banking and Finance. Albert worked as a research assistant at the Department of Finance—UGBS and the Regional Institute of Population Studies (RIPS) where he provided research support in development economics and health economics. Some of the projects Albert worked on include Harvard University’s Willows Impact Evaluation: Ghana Baseline Survey, the 4th AFRACA Central Bank Summit, developing a Bus Rapid Transport System in Ghana, and the 2nd Edition of The Ghana Business Development Review.
He is very passionate about music, especially African music, and volunteers for local community projects. He served as the General Secretary for the Avid Youthbuild Foundation, a foundation that helps talented students from his hometown Apam to pursue their academic dreams. After graduation, Albert aspires to build a career in finance, supporting multinational and multilateral corporations to impact developing and fragile states.
"I chose MSFS because it has unique faculty and practitioners who are always ready to guide their students to solve the most difficult problems the world is facing. And Georgetown is in the heart of D.C. where global decisions are made.”
