Ágnes Horváth

Lead Education Programme Designer, Solutions Lab

As Lead Education Programme Designer, Ágnes leads the development of innovative, internationally scalable education solutions with the mission of increasing equity of access to higher education. Before joining the Solutions Lab team, she led Milestone’s Upper House for 5 years, heading a team responsible for over 200 students and more than 50 mentors, steering her students towards top universities worldwide.

Ágnes has over 20 years of experience in both formal and non-formal education, various educational methodologies, curriculum design, and course delivery. Trained as a historian, she was a post-graduate research scholar at the University of Cambridge when she realised that her true passion lies not just in learning but also in supporting others on their journey towards knowledge. Having indulged her interest in social and cultural history to the hilt, she turned towards education and young people and has never looked back.

Before joining Milestone in 2018, she was developing and delivering international training courses for young people from all over Europe. She had also managed operations in a startup and overseen major organisational development in a youth NGO, taking both organisations to the next level. She has lived and worked in the USA, Spain, the Netherlands and the UK; she is now based in Hungary. In her free time, Ágnes can be found in the vicinity of dance floors, bookstores, and anything involving sunshine and/or music.
