Khanya Okumu, Green Templeton College student profileMaster of Business Administration

I am a proud African, born and raised in South Africa.

Professionally I am a qualified Chartered Accountant with experience in finance and investments. Most recently I led an impact fund for Old Mutual Limited (a pan-African financial services company). The mandate of the fund is to provide finance to small and growing businesses as well as wrap-around post investment support. My role in the fund was to establish and implement the overall investment strategy, design impact measures (such as sustainable job creation) and coordinate the investment committee.

Personally I lead Fun Learning for Youth (FLY) an NGO focused on empowering young minds through education. FLY provides tutoring services to high school learners in under serviced areas.

I am wanderlust and enjoy meeting new people and exploring new places. I am also a bibliophile and enjoy a good read.
