A staunch Christian, I also have a demonstrated history of working in the real estate and hospitality industry.

Strong professional with a Bachelor of Science – BSc (Accounting) from UPSA and MSc Finance from the University of Kent.


My paper on corporate governance and financial performance of listed banks in Ghana was selected for the 3rd International Conference on Business Management and Entrepreneurial Development, Accra Ghana.

What attracted you to the MBA programme at Kent Business School and why?

I was here in 2018, I had a flat mate who was an MBA student then. She convinced me to take the MBA programme later in my career. The mixture of intensity and fun attracted me. I wanted a different career path. I wanted to diversify from accounting.


To become a partner in a Big 4 … and maybe set up my accountancy and legal firm.


There is no better time than now.
