I’m Daniel Rubio and this is my personal website. You can contact me here. In case you would like to know more about my professional profile you can find my resume here and learn more about my experiences below.



I currently work for the OECD and I have field experience in sustainable development and global communication projects, including policy dialogue with United Nations representatives, high-level government officials and local community stakeholders. I have also participated in international forums such as the 17th International Economic Forum on Africa or DEV Week 2017 of the OECD. I am specialised in public policy analysis and public affairs with an interest in globalization, development and policies aimed at reducing inequality. I believe in the added value of teamwork, on-time delivery and being reliable.


Before, I have worked in the private sector for companies like Salesforce, Uniplaces or SAP with business development, sales or innovation management responsibilities.


I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in International Business from Universidad Europea and a Certificate in Globalization from Oxford University. I have been a visiting student at McGill University and awarded the Academic Excellence Scholarship for three consecutive years (2015-2017). Currently, I am completing a Diploma in Marketing and Public Relations from the University of California Berkeley. Next year, I will finish my second Bachelor’s Degree in International Relations at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), specialising in European affairs and international political economy.



In 2015, I was the first-ever Spanish student to be selected to participate in the Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting in New York. This allowed me to present the live broadcast of the event to the over 1.000.000 students from the Laureate International Universities network in 29 countries. I interviewed political leaders like Julia Gillard, former Primer Minister of Australia, or policymakers like Madeleine Albright, former US Secretary of State, discussing topics such as education for development, international relations or gender equality.

    CEO Laureate Australia and New Zealand

    “As you would imagine, we receive a large number of quality applications each year, and always end up with the highest calibre of student representation from across the network. However I feel this year we were fortunate to see an entirely new benchmark set. Daniel was a brilliant broadcaster, and a flawless Ambassador for UEM and for the entire Laureate network.

    He met a large number of high profile leaders including Chelsea Clinton, Former US Secretary of State Madeline Albright, Former Prime Minister of Australia Julia Gillard and Reverend Jesse Jackson. His capacity to be deeply curious, and able to ask informed and engaging questions on topics from education, to politics, to race, to human rights, was truly impressive. Beyond that, he was mature, compassionate, and made the most of every opportunity and interaction”.

    Professor of International Economics and Negotiations at Universidad Europea

    Since I met Daniel during his freshman year in 2014, he has enjoyed every opportunity to learn from his older peers and his professors. Daniel quickly learned to manage his time to succeed in his double degree program, work in group situations under strict deadlines, and to recognize the importance of a strong work ethic, persistence, and intellectual integrity. He has already succeded at being accepted by top universities such as McGill and UC Berkeley or work for prestigious organizations like the OECD.

    I know him well and I have no doubt he is the kind of person that makes an impact with his work. I recommend Daniel with absolute confidence. He has made me proud, as his teacher and friend”.
