Afonso graduated from the University of Michigan with degrees in Economics and Political Science. Prior to joining London Business School (LBS), Afonso worked as a management consultant for A.T. Kearney in the firm’s Chicago and Toronto offices, where he specialised on consumer goods, retail and food & beverage work.
Afonso decided to join LBS to not only continue expanding his business skill set in other areas such as accounting and finance but also to leverage the School’s global network. He is involved in a wide range of extra-curricular activities, taking up leadership roles in the Impact Consulting Club and the Foodie Club.
Outside of the classroom, Afonso loves travelling, altitude hiking having summited Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Fuji, and watching football. In fact, one of his goals is to watch a game at every stadium in the Premier League by the time he finishes his MBA in July 2020!
