Growing up as a kid in primary school, I had developed a love for figures and a lot of careers. I wanted to be a doctor, engineer and accountant. I had difficulty in choosing one out of the many careers I had in mind. Finally, I settle on accounting because it was part of the subjects given to me to study in high school hence I developed interest for it. In Ghana, most students’ careers are predetermined by the high school they attended and the course they offered in high school.
Second, most of business school want students that can balance between working hours as TA or RA and their study. I think it is not hard for me to do that, because I am having the similar experience; I am working as “Quality assurance manager and data base designer” which is an arduous task, simultaneously I am studying Master. Third, I am passionate and dedicated toward research. I have a research paper which is mentioned in my resume, some students applying without having research experience and they have no idea what it means. But, I have been through all process of burden in conducting a research, I can definitely say I like researching and I know what it is!
Student Days - Share a little about life as a student, what kind of a person were/are you (introvert, outgoing). I had always been a studious guy, slightly introvert but extremely confident and independent. I learned a lot from situations around me when I was at school, and realized that life teaches much more than books. Even today, I use some of the situations faced as a kid, to my advantage in my business strategies. Many of my quirky marketing strategies are direct results of my quirkiness as a student.
Getting my bachelor’s degree and going the extra step to get my master’s degree was always my plan. By coming to college, I have built better networking skills as well as better social skills. Early in the semester, I made it my mission to join different organizations on campus to refine myself into the person I wanted to become. It is one of my passions to help people, including myself, become the best version of themselves as possible. It 's easier to help my friends here on campus than the friends I have back home who didn’t go to
These efforts have helped me to be amongst the top 3 students in the Computer Science and Engineering Department. During the tenure of my college, I have always being attracted to the field of Information Analytics. Attacking a problem, which at first seems impossible to solve, and eventually finding an efficient solution by careful analysis of data and information provides me with high level of exhilaration. This was the stepping stone towards pursuing masters in the field of
As a tech-savvy and gadget lover, I like to explore cutting-edge technologies and products at different places and always desired to develop something unique and innovative that will transform our lives into easier. Moreover, I had always been a bright student at my university and had good grades in core subjects of Computer Science. Apart from that, I had scored well in my favourite subjects which are Human-Computer Interaction, Database and Operating Systems, Web Engineering and Distributed Computing. Besides my Academic studies, I have been following world 's leading trade shows for consumer electronics like ‘The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES)’, ‘Mobile World Congress’ and ‘IFA’ since last 7 years where latest technology trends and innovations are showcased such as Google Assistant-powered smart displays, L 'Oreal UV Sense, etc. while my future thought is to showcase my own impressive and innovative product in those mega-events.
In my secondary school life, I have joined different societies and took up posts that helped me in developing various skills. Like decision making, cooperation, communication skills, to name but a few. Considering my passion towards business, I hope that I will be able walk the extra mile in university. My friends often describe me as a responsible person, I take others’ opinion seriously and always give others a helpful hand. Not only was I a member of the school prefect team, I was also the vice chairperson in the mathematics club.
This six weeks period introduce a new sense of responsibility in myself. By performing the different responsibilities in the bank, this whole experience makes me more confident that I am capable to take any responsibility and I have an ability to tackle problems. This internship period introduces me with my this hidden capability and off course my this strength helps me a lot in my future, all I have gained from these six weeks helps me in the future. All those activities that I have performed in these weeks help me a lot in my future career. I became successful in completing my internship not because of my courage and dedication but also because of the knowledge that I have gained from my teacher in the course of regular studies.
In my perspective, professionalism, perhaps more than any other trait out there is what best defines an accountant’s career. Irrespective of the certifications one might have, or their education level or even their place of employment, what every single accountant is at least expected to demonstrate is a degree of professionalism in how they conduct themselves and how they utilize their expertise in the field they specialize in. And this is not something that I alone strongly believe in. Just this past semester, my marketing professor told our class that it’s perfectly fine for us students to get a B in any of our classes if it means that we can devote more time to internships/work which in several instances can be more valuable to our career
‘Don’t take rest after your first victory. Because if you fail in second, more lips are waiting to say that your first victory was a mere luck’ These are the words of Dr. APJ ABDUL KALAM which have left an everlasting impression on my mind. This is because I have had my first victory by completing my Under Graduation working hard. So I want to taste my next victory by pursuing Masters in your esteemed University. Whenever I stop by to reflect the knowledge that I have possessed these years, I feel that how little I have learnt, and a mammoth amount of unexplored knowledge lies before me.
