New Year for Executive MBA Programme

The new academic year has seen three new cohorts start on the Executive MBA programme, in Ghana, Malaysia and the UK.


We welcomed twenty-two students who formed the fifth cohort to officially commence study of the Lancaster Executive MBA programme at the Lancaster University Ghana campus.

The diverse demographics for our fifth cohort comes with students from Ghana, Nigeria, Togo, Iran and China, with varying years of work experience. These students bring to the programme different kinds of experience from working in various sectors including Telecommunications, Law, Banking, Retail, Manufacturing, as well as owning their own businesses. This cohort is a unique one because it includes two of our undergraduate alumni: Paul Auguste Kadjo-Wognin, an Ivorian BSc Accounting & Finance graduate from our 2017 graduating cohort, and Victor Abdi, a Nigerian BSc Marketing graduate from our 2019 cohort.

Interestingly, the new EMBA cohort had its first Masterclass led by Naa Okailey Adamafio-Manteau, who was part of our 2nd EMBA cohort. Naa Okailey, Country Manager for Denk Pharma GmbH & Co. KG led a discussion on ‘Leading from the Outside’, which fit in perfectly with the Leadership module studied that weekend.
