Congratulations to Supernumerary Fellow Professor Karthik Ramanna who has been recognised in the Case Centre’s annual Awards and Competitions.

President Trump Calling: Accept or Decline? was written by the Case Centre for Public Leadership at the Blavatnik School of Government. The team is led by Karthik Ramanna, Professor of Business and Public Policy and Director of the Master of Public Policy, and counts on senior case writers Vidhya Muthuram and Sarah McAra. Click here for a summary of this case.

The scenario outlined represents a fairly common occurrence, where a public leader has to make quick decisions, with limited information, under a lot of pressure. It is the perfect case to use in MPP teaching and senior leaders training, as it allows students to explore their emotional response to controversial requests and channel it into a productive conversation on their own leadership approaches under pressure.

" At the Blavatnik School we have a strong focus on applied learning, since we are preparing our students for senior public leadership. Using case studies like this brings classroom principles to life and thrusts students into situations where concepts meets reality. A conversation on President Trump tends to generate lively responses, and this case discussion was no exception. " Prof Karthik Ramanna
