What is Life at KOIS like?

Take a look at what some current employees and alumnus have to say about life at KOIS!

Pierre-Louis Christiane, KOIS and INSEAD MBA class of 2018

Pierre-Louis Christiane, KOIS alumn & INSEAD MBA class of 2018

“Starting my career as an analyst at KOIS has been a tremendous career fast-track. Empowered by visionary and ambitious leaders, I had the opportunity to quickly take responsibilities in the activities of the company. From setting up a social housing fund in Belgium to working on structuring a Development Impact Bond for refugees in host countries, I got the chance to contribute to globally premiering impact investments, in partnerships with the most relevant actors in the sector. Doing so, I quickly gained the maturity to  leapfrog my career with an MBA from a leading business school (INSEAD). KOIS’ partners supported me through my application process with the same dedication as they supported my personal development during the previous three years.”
