Dedication to continuous learning and a thirst for adventure led Jakob Ullegaard to quit his job as Executive Director at Danish Shipping and pursue a year of tremendous, personal development at Harvard University.

The Scholarship from Crown Prince Frederik Fund made it possible for Jakob to get a Master in Public Administration from Harvard University from July 2018 to June 2019 as a Mid-career student.

“It is a big leap to go at a later stage in your career, but I believe you also reap even larger benefits. On top of all the learning and opportunities to be in dialogue with highly experienced figures from public policy and business, I also built a strong network among more than 200 hundred professionals from around the world. Knowing the potential of my classmates, I am certain that many will be in very influential positions in their own countries, and I hope we can make good use of each other.” – Jacob Ullegaard, Harvard University, 2018/19. Today he is Head of the Secretariat for Venstre at Christiansborg.

“With more than a decade of work experience and having gone through all the struggles of learning how to lead groups of highly skilled people, I was very ripe for new learning. I think one of the reasons my year at Harvard Kennedy School yielded so much was that I could relate my classes to real life situations that I have gone through.”
