ichel Lusakueno was born and raised in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. After the first riots took place in 1992, Michel left the country. He lived in France before coming to the United States and completing his undergraduate degree at Davidson College.
Michel’s interest in business and real estate as it relates to the infrastructure of cities in the developing world led him to study sustainability as an MBA at UNC Kenan-Flagler. Each year, students enrolled in the Sustainability Immersion gain experience in activities such as climate simulations, innovation exercises, and global immersions which help them examine a variety of issues from energy to microfinance.
Now working in real estate with Bank of America, Michel says of the Real Estate program at UNC Kenan-Flagler, “We worked on a project that gave us hands-on experience with all aspects of a real project, from working with the DOT (Department of Transportation), to the pro forma, to the architectural work.”
