Renato Akaishi

  • Programme: MBA
  • Nationality: Brazilian

Renato was born and raised in São Paulo, Brazil, and completed his bachelors degree in industrial engineering at UFSCar. He started his career as a strategy consultant at Monitor Group in São Paulo, where he spent two and a half years. As part of his project experience, he lived for a short period in Colombia and Chile and transferred to the Chicago office in 2014. His project experience has ranged from gaining customer insights in the automobile industry to developing the commercial strategy for a global pharmaceutical company.

Renato decided to pursue an MBA to switch careers. He wants to work in a corporate role across Europe/Asia. London Business School was top of mind for Rento, especially because of the exposure to a truly diverse community and the possibility to meet people from all around the world.

Renato is vice president (social) of the Football and Brazil Clubs and vice president (international treks) of the Industry Club. He also mentors several students on LBS’s Masters in Management programme. Renato is also taking advantage of London’s location by taking weekend trips to explore more of Europe, visiting cities such as Barcelona and Prague.
