I have lived and worked in Nigeria all my life, so it's nice to study in different regions during the Cross Continent MBA program. My time at Duke has shown me the world in a structured way and has widened my perspective on culture and business practices in different environments.

I studied chemical engineering and have spent the last 10 years in supply chain management in the energy sector.

I am married with two kids, who just converted to become ardent Barcelona soccer fans, and in my spare time I still play soccer for the local team. Though it's obvious it offers me no career path, I do it for the love of the game.
