About me: Dr Chidi Amadi started his MBA at London Business School in 2019. He underwent structured recruitment, working to secure four final round interviews at four of the top bulge bracket investment banks. He successfully secured an investment banking summer associate internship and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
During his first year at LBS, Chidi was part of the Africa Business Summit team working towards delivering an excellent annual conference in 2020; unfortunately these endeavours were put on hold because of the global pandemic. He also played a central role in the Africa Club’s dance performance at Tattoo, London Business School’s annual charity event. Alongside his studies, he continues in his role as Chair of Governors of Michaela Community School, a London secondary school officially rated as outstanding by OFSTED, which Chidi co-founded. As a Londoner, Chidi has also been instrumental in supporting fellow students from across the world in making the most of student life in London.
