MBA alumna Miranda Brawn

Miranda Brawn, who graduated from the Master of Business Administration (MBA) course, has been included in the Financial Times’ list of the 100 leading executives from ethnic minorities.

The list, which is the first global list of its kind, aims to rank the top 100 British, Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) professionals in the UK, US and Ireland who have achieved senior jobs while promoting diversity.

Miranda Brawn was included for her senior role as Director of Legal and Transaction Management at Daiwa Capital Markets, as well as for being a strong spokesperson for the BAME community in the workplace. Before joining Westminster Business School, she studied political philosophy at Cambridge University.

Speaking about being included, Miranda said: “I am truly humbled and honoured to be recognised in the first Financial Times & UPstanding Global BAME Business Executive Leader Powerlist. This Powerlist will hopefully generate some great publicity around the need for more race diversity within the workplace on a global basis.”

The MBA course is designed to give business professionals the skills they need to fill executive roles. Westminster Business School is a preferred supplier of the MBA course by the UK government.
