Udochuku Richson | IE Business School International MBA 50th Class

Udochuku Richson: A passion that knows no limits

Udochuku “Udo” Richson is one of those people who never slows down. The Austrian-born International MBA graduate has been recognized time and time again for his achievements, from earning a talent scholarship to IE Business School for his skills as a musician and national rugby player, to working on the development of a breakthrough research project. It’s clear that Udo’s ambitions are both eclectic and far-reaching.

Udo’s talent, however, isn’t confined to hard sciences. After his ten-year stint playing rugby, an unfortunately-timed injury took him out of the team just before the final game of the season—but he was not to be deterred. From the sidelines, he brewed up the idea for a nonprofit: a program for the social integration of young refugees through rugby. The program, dubbed Rugby Opens Borders, helped children who were seeking asylum in Austria to meet locals, learn the language and have fun along the way.

For Udo, this opportunity to step outside of his comfort zone and act for the greater good was well worth it. What’s more, the importance of sport in bringing people together is something Udo is very passionate about.

“Sport [can] help with a lot, like getting stabilized and really having more social interactions—and of course, leveraging opportunities like learning a [new] language. [Meeting] people that can help you find your spot in a new country is [vital].”
