“Of course I miss my wife but this is an opportunity”

Ernest Kwame Gyimah, MBA student 2012

Leaving his wife and his one-year-old baby behind in Ghana to study in Berlin, Ernest sees ESMT as both an opportunity and a challenge. His plan is to go back to Africa, “the next most important destination.” Although this is an emotional year for him, he knows that his family is proud of him. With five years of professional experience his plan is to continue his career in the area of development finance. He has learned a lot about German and European business styles, which he will adapt back in his home country. Ernest came to Berlin as a Kofi Annan Fellow. His favorite place in Berlin is the Weltzeituhr on Alexanderplatz. Here you’ll find Accra – and finally he feels close to home.
