Junji Okawa

  • Programme: MBA
  • Nationality: Japanese

After living in the US during his teenage years, Junji returned to Japan, where he received his degree in business and commerce. Though Junji aspired to become a professional football player after graduation, he ended his football journey to start his career at Mitsui & Co., a Japanese conglomerate. At Mitsui, Junji took part in the cross-border M&A of a massive energy and infrastructure project in Sub-Saharan Africa. His role ranged from finance to strategy, negotiation, and marketing, successfully closing the deal just a few months before joining LBS. He chose LBS because of its amazing diversity and the outstanding quality of its candidates and alumni.

During summer, Junji spent 3 months interning at a VC based in Nairobi, Kenya.

For his 2nd and final year, in addition to his engagement in student-led clubs, Junji looks to pursue several internships in London, in the field of investment.
