GLOBASE Ghana kicks off

Second-Year MBA

As a student leader for GLOBASE Ghana, one of the great Kelley MBA global experiences, I can't wait to officially kick things off with our team. After an extremely competitive application process, we have selected 21 incredible first-year MBA students who will participate in the program this school year. GLOBASE Ghana will host its first event in just a couple short weeks with a welcome dinner, and I am very much looking forward to getting to know everyone who will be accompanying me on this incredible journey.

While our first-year MBA students are knee deep in the core, as student leaders we are moving things along and are very excited about how the GLOBASE Ghana program is shaping up this year. We have begun the project selection process and are confident we will have some amazing projects for our participants to work on. GLOBASE Ghana is fortunate in that we have fabulous exisiting partners in Accra in Kingsbridge Corporate Services, Aid to Artisans Ghana, and EMEFA Jewellry, and we cannot wait to see what projects they propose for our teams.

Additionaly, as a leadership team we are not only passionate about serving the Kelley School of Business and our clients, we are also passionate about serving the people of Ghana. To do this we will be incorporating an aspect of service into our program. With this new direction we hope to educate our participants on some of the social issues that exist in Ghana and do our part through fundraising, volunteering, and business consulting to make a difference.

As I continue to do my part in coordinating this year's GLOBASE Ghana program, I am continually amazed by the work of the Kelley MBA students who preceeded me, and look forward to making my own mark on this outstanding program.
