The Graduate Programs Office is preparing to welcome this years incoming class of students who will begin the MBA program in August. We are excited to gain a new group of fresh faces within the walls of the School of Management. We are sharing this excitement by posting short profiles throughout the summer introducing the incoming class. We hope you will take the time to get to know our newest UB MBA’s as we share some of their experiences and interests.
Hometown: I was born and raised in Lagos State until I was 10 years old, then my family moved to Abuja the Federal Capital Territory of Nigeria. However, in Nigeria, one’s hometown is interpreted as the place where one’s forefathers originated from irrespective of where one was born and raised. Thus, my hometown (origin) is in Anambra State, South East of Nigeria.
Current Location: I currently live in Abuja, Nigeria.
Graduated from: I attended the prestigious University of Nigeria, Nsukka.
Major: I have a Bachelors degree in Accounting.
Why UB? I chose SUNY at Buffalo over other schools because it’s School of Management has an excellent reputation. It is AACSB accredited and is ranked among the top 100 best business schools by different rankings institutions. Also, I appreciate the diversity of the students in the school, and that it is more affordable when compared with other business schools with about the same ranking.
Why an MBA? My qualification will equip me for bigger job opportunities in the short term and the necessary leadership and managerial skills to manage my own business in the long term.
Summer plans: I will be spending the summer months working in my office–PricewaterhouseCoopers, Nigeria–and preparing for my journey to Buffalo for the full-time MBA program.
If you could learn anything: I wish I could learn to play at least three musical instruments and also to swim.
The hardest thing you have ever done: The hardest thing ever for me was going back to boarding school after the death of my dad at age 11. I was sad most of that year.
A fun fact about you: I am a good cook, and I love to try new ways of cooking meals.
