Senior Associate at global financial services firm, State Street Corporation
Founder and Executive Director of NGO, Ungana Scholars Project


Michael Ogutu came to UWCSEA in 2006 as a National Committee Scholar from Kenya and went on to study Chemistry and Economics at Middlebury College in the US on a UWC-Davis Scholarship.  

While at university, Mike used his campus job earnings to sponsor High School students to the school in rural Kenya where he grew up. He says about the scholars he supports, “They are smart, creative and potential leaders in various fields. They simply lack $125 to be in school, so that they can learn uninterruptedly.” Ungana has so far sponsored 60 students, with over ten joining local universities in Kenya.

Mike says, “I work hard every day that I may create opportunities to enable those in similar shoes, as I was a few years ago, explore their potential. UWCSEA was a catalyst to actualizing this interest and I’m glad I got to start doing so during my Global Concerns and service during the IB."

Mike has just finished his MBA at the University of Oxford and is working on a venture idea which he hopes to launch in 2017. He is also with BMO Capital Markets.
