Kohei Amakusa

  • Programme: MBA
  • Nationality: Japanese

Kohei studied international relations at University of Tokyo, thinking of becoming a diplomat. However, studying business while on exchange in the US and interning at a start-up in India caused him to change direction. After graduation, he joined Mitsubishi Corporation, where he has worked on developing and investing in large-scale oil and gas infrastructure projects, frequently travelling overseas.

He chose to pursue his MBA at London Business School because of its amazing diversity and the London location. Kohei is actively involved in student club leadership roles –both as President of the Japan Club and as VP Events of the Energy Club. He will also go on a half-semester exchange to NYU to further his studies in the area of finance.

Kohei did his summer internship at CDC Group, working on several infrastructure investment deals in Sub-Sahara Africa. He is passionate about investing in energy infrastructure in emerging markets and plans to pursue this post-MBA.

Kohei enjoys travelling and is passionate about promoting Japanese sake to people from outside of Japan: he was recently certified as an international sake sommelier.
