Takeshi Nagato

Full-Time MBA, Class of 2014

Corporate Accounting and Finance
Manager,
Bank of Tokyo - Mitsubishi UFJ

Takeshi Nagato is a graduate of Keio University, Japan, where he earned a Bachelor of Economics degree. Soon after graduation, he joined The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ (BTMU), which sponsored his MBA studies. Takeshi is grateful for the opportunity the bank has provided. “If I was not fully sponsored by my company,” he says, “I might not have made up my mind to pursue an MBA in the US.” 

A Japanese citizen, who was born in the US and spent part of his childhood here, Takeshi moved easily into an international career. While successful in the financial industry, he says he “felt the need to further develop his business acumen and improve professionally by being exposed to the thoughts and view of others who have experiences that are not exclusive to financial services.”

According to Takeshi, two things attracted him to the School. “I chose Simon because of its smaller size and its strength in finance,” he says. “I got to know everybody, students, faculty, and staff in person.”  But beyond the connections he made at Simon, Takeshi looks forward to what his education will do for his career and the company that sponsors him. “I want to contribute to the revitalization of BTMU's global reputation,” he says. “I also hope to stimulate Japan's economy with domestic and international transactions between Japanese and Western companies.” Takeshi is currently serving as a manager at BTMU.
