Dean Stavridis' Monthly Video Series

Dean's Video: August 2015: "Why Fletcher?" Ravi Shankar Chaturvedi and the Digital Evolution Index

In this month's Dean's video, Research Fellow for Innovation and Change at The Fletcher School's Institute for Business in the Global Context Ravi Shankar Chaturvedi (MIB '12), discusses his experience as a co-author of the Digital Planet Report and associated Digital Evolution Index (DEI). This study, co-authored together with Senior Associate Dean of International Business and Finance Bhaskar Chakravorti and Professor of Practice of International Business Christopher Tunnard, takes a comprehensive look at digital growth around the world and ranks 50 countries in terms of their "readiness" for the digital economy.

The "Why Fletcher?” series showcases a diverse range of alumni and students across ages, interests, sectors and degree programs discussing their reasons for choosing Fletcher, what makes it a standout institution for graduate education in international affairs, how their experiences at the School helped to transform their views of the world and shape their careers, and how the School prepared them to be successful in their current roles.
