Michael Kalavritinos (Pardee ’90) was hosted by the Latin American Studies Program (LASP), an affiliated program of the The Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies, on April 20, 2018 for a discussion entitled “Navigating the Changing Economic and Political Landscape in Latin America.”

Kalavritinos works as the Deputy Head of Global Client Management for Latin America at Bank of New York Mellon, where he manages a team that is responsible for strategic relationships with the top banks and Central Banks in Latin America.

Speaking to an audience of current students, Kalavritinos emphasized that the interdisciplinary education offered at the Pardee School is something that is currently highly sought after in the banking sector.

“Interdisciplinary skills are increasingly very valuable and very much in demand in the private sector and the banking sector specifically, but in others I can imagine as well,” Kalavritinos said. “I think the Pardee School is a wonderful forum for you to have access to — as I did — to learn about political geography, international trade, international economics, international relations, public diplomacy [JB emphasis], and development in whatever region you have an interest in.”
