Over economics specialization in economics. This fit

Over the past few years, I have developed
my interest for finance. I was confused about my father’s trade business, which
shut down due to defaulting on a loan. This brought about my passionate
interest in following the major areas of financial decision-making in
businesses and led me to undertake internships that will give me the right
exposure to the industry. I want to study the finance degree to enhance my
economics understanding of helping other businesses in Ghana and people to make
better financial decisions, grounded in simple, robust and compelling analyses.

 

My focus as an undergraduate was with
an eye toward graduate school and a professional career in corporate finance. I
aspire to work immediately with an investment bank after acquiring the
necessary academic tools through the program. I hope to be able to contribute
to the whole value of deals made in offering advice to existing and new
businesses in Ghana. Providing these business owners with adequate
understanding of economic issues will be essential for enabling them to make
informed financial decisions for their companies when
many businesses are expanding and in need of capital to fund that growth as
well as finding efficient ways to manage their businesses. I hope to be able to
make an impact in alleviating the stigma that has been associated with small
Ghanaian businesses in need of capital. My long-term goal is to grow businesses
through an investment advisory firm; it will provide financial advisory
services to the small and medium scale businesses (public and private) in Ghana,
management teams, private equity houses on valuation, deal structuring and
implementation with the necessary economic concepts to enable them to forecast
economic trends and strategically position their companies to brace for any
anticipated trends.

My undergraduate work in economics
proved it as the science of business. It is why there is a financial economics
specialization in economics. This fit with economics is what has prepared for
the finance degree. I took yearlong courses in Economic theory, Public Finance
and Econometrics that parallel to the finance industry. I enjoyed seeing how
these theoretical statistical techniques correlated to real world finance
industry. After every class, I went to speak with my instructors to understand
how these theories were being applied to real work analyses, and they never
failed to fascinate me.

 

Research is an aspect of graduate
school for which I have both an interest and a sound background. I worked on a
focus group report “Transformation Agenda-GHL Bank” with supervision from Prof.

Robert Ebo Hinson. While at the Centre for Migration Studies (CMS), I had the
good fortune to work under the supervision of Dr. Joseph Teye. I employed mixed
methodology in generating new knowledge related to “migration and poverty” by
creating new datasets and publications; engaging policymakers with key research
outcomes on migration and poverty linkages. As part of my tenure, I was able to
research literature on the boons of migration to the labor markets, evaluate
statistical measures; write test items, pilot test questions and testing
administrative procedures

 

 

My work experiences with Barclays
Bank, GHL Bank and PricewaterhouseCoopers exposed me to receive foundational
knowledge in underwriting, valuations, debt advisory, financial modeling, and mergers
& acquisitions. The overall lessons and skills I internalized from these experiences
including extensive number crunching, excellent communication and strong
ethical standards define my strong sense of purpose as a future student.

 

Wealth transfer and the underlying
principles thereof continue to intrigue me. I have loved finding out why
specific financial ideas work reliably in certain zones while proving
disastrous when applied elsewhere. It is my ultimate goal to practically use
the acquired knowledge, skills, experiences and my capacity as a finance professional
to strengthen Ghana’s external sector in a propitious period, I believe that
helping others is the root of all true meaning in life, and I would want to
help others in an endeavor more meaningful. I would be happy to pursue
development project assignments anywhere in the developing world.

 

My interests in
studying at the American University has grown out of conversations with Maha
Alkhayal and Yvonne Okafor, whom have all shared specific in depth experiences
about the Finance program. When I spoke about my interest with Dr. Timothy
Timura, he further assured me that KSB would offer the excellent finance
education and professional opportunities I am looking for. I am especially
excited about the department’s strength in experiential learning, which will
prepare me for my career aspirations.

 

In addition to technical and academic facilities, I
was able to successfully fuse my undergraduate curricula, with my
extracurricular activities; this volunteer work with Citizens Initiative, and
mentorship activities, while maintaining strong academic records exemplifies my
ability to succeed in graduate school. I also played on the University of Ghana
tennis and soccer teams. I am able to interact and enjoy a great spectrum of
people; this is one of my strongest personality traits. 

 

If accepted into
the American University, I will bring a unique way of understanding and
perspective through my Ghanaian background. I would like to use my background
to contribute to class interactions to motivate others and myself in the
program to succeed. I believe my determination and experiences in the pursuit
of knowledge, along with other qualifications, can lead to success in the
graduate program at the Kogod School of Business. I wish to
reassure this committee that, if given the opportunity, I will work diligently
to complete the master’s program in Finance.
