Fuqua recently hosted a group of prospective students from the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA). The group of roughly 25 students visited a number of schools in the Research Triangle Park area, including Duke.
A number of Fuqua students, in both the Daytime MBA and MMS programs, who have either lived in Africa or have African heritage, participated in a panel event for the visitors. Topics addressed included our respective experiences in Africa and how those experiences have influenced our time at Fuqua, the admissions process for international students, life in North Carolina, and professional life after Fuqua.
As someone of Ghanaian parentage, who has also lived in Ghana for a few years, this was especially exciting for me. I enjoyed meeting the visitors and hope they walked away with some helpful information.

Prior to coming to Fuqua, I worked for Google, in their Ghana office. My role focused on expanding the scope of the University Programs Initiative and assisting small and medium-sized businesses to leverage online tools to improve their businesses. As a result, I developed a strong interest in business strategy and business development in emerging markets.
