After the announcement was made, members of the public and academic circles expressed their shock and dismay at the appointment and took to social media channels to question the actress’s qualifications.
But before you judge, have you seen Ms Jolie Pitt’s CV? Do you know the full extent of her experience? So, we ‘created’ her CV to find out why LSE thought she would be a benefit to their masters course and to be honest we were pretty surprised with the amount that she has accomplished.
Here’s a taster of her experience, you can view the full CV here:
