About Me

With one of Madrid's many Champions League trophies...

My name is Mogbekeloluwa but I prefer to be called Koye. It is easier to pronounce and it was my beloved dad's name. I am defined by my curiosity: I ask a lot of questions, read a lot, and listen to podcasts often. I am most interested in business, economics, history, and technology. Therefore, most of my reading and learning is focused on these areas. I believe clear writing facilitates clear thinking, so I try to write a lot - most often in my journal, but sometimes for my blog. I also enjoy photographing landscapes and watching Real Madrid play.

I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering from OAU (Nigeria) and an MBA from INSEAD (France). I was valedictorian at INSEAD's 2018 Fontainebleau graduation and my speech is here. I believe in business as a force for good, and I believe business can be a powerful tool for creating value, shaping society, and enabling people to achieve their dreams.

I work in Retail Management at Amazon. Prior to this, I worked in Strategy Consulting as part of Accenture Strategy's Consumer Goods & Services practice. Before that, I worked in Procurement and Advertising at P&G. While studying for my MBA at INSEAD, I worked with a team for Google to develop a guide on improving marketing in large organizations.

When something happens that is worth writing long posts about, I share those posts here. Otherwise, you might find me on Twitter or Facebook writing shorter posts or commenting furiously when Real Madrid is playing.

PS: I've done a few feature-length profiles over the past few years, mostly linked to my INSEAD MBA story. Here's one on Bella Naija and another on Clear Admit.
