Andrew Graham (born June 20, 1942 in Perranporth, Cornwall) is an academic and Master of Balliol College, Oxford.

Graham was born in Perranporth, Cornwall and attended Truro Cathedral School and then Charterhouse. He read PPE at St Edmund Hall and graduated from Oxford University in 1964. He worked at the National Economic Development Office in the autumn of 1964 and then, from 1964 to 1966, at the Department of Economic Affairs, before becoming assistant to Thomas Balogh, economic adviser to the Cabinet. When Balogh returned to Oxford, Andrew Graham became economic adviser to Harold Wilson, Prime Minister 1967-69. In 1969, at the age of 26, he was elected to a Tutorial Fellowship in Economics at Balliol. He returned to 10 Downing Street as a Policy Adviser to the Prime Minister, 1974-76 and later, from 1988-1994, became economic advisor to the Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer and, from 1992, Leader of the Labour Party, John Smith. He remained as a Tutorial Fellow in Economics at Balliol College, Oxford until 1997 and combined this with being a Member of the Committee to Review the Functioning of the Financial Institutions, 1977-80, a non-executive director of the British Transport Docks Board, 1979-82, and a member of the media advisory committee of the IPPR, 1994-97. With the help of a very substantial donation from The Shirley Foundation, he founded the Oxford Internet Institute (OII) in 2001 and has been a Board Member of Channel 4 Television and a Trustee of the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation. He is an elected member of the Council of Oxford University and a member of the Scott Trust, which owns The Guardian and The Observer. He is the son of the late author, Winston Graham.
