Burneo was born in Lima, Peru on 26 February 1961. He studied economics at the National University of San Marcos, then was grant holder at the University of São Paulo and he earned a Economics Master degree at the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru. He earned a doctorate in Business Administration at the ESADE business school of the Ramon Llull University in Barcelona, Spain.
During the government of Alejandro Toledo, Burneo was Peru's Vice Minister of Finance, chairman of the National Bank and director of the Central Reserve Bank of Peru. He has taught at several universities, such as Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru, Cayetano Heredia University, Universidad de San Martín de Porres and Universidad Nacional Federico Villarreal. He is currently director of the economics course at the Universidad San Ignacio de Loyola, a position he has held since 2006.

When appointed to head the Production Ministry and was in charge to create the Ministry of Development and Social Inclusion, in August 2011, Kurt Burneo said "The idea is to centralise the social programmes. One of the current problems that has led to glaring economic losses is the fact that the social programmes are dispersed". He went on to say that his role would entail the formulation, planning, implementation, evaluation and monitoring of the national and sectoral policy on social development and inclusion.
Burneo resigned as minister due to a cabinet reshuffle on 11 December 2011. He currently is the Alternate Executive Director in the Interamerican Development Bank in Washington DC USA, until July 2014.
