Always Climbing Mountains

“I wanted something more.”

“I wanted something more.”

George Adjabeng’s father aspired that his children would learn to read and write.

Adjabeng ’10 (M.B.A.) was born in a village in Ghana. His family farmed tomatoes and other subsistence crops. They had no running water or electricity. Adjabeng trekked each day to school.

“Everywhere you go, you’re climbing mountains,” he recalls.

He began his career in the sciences, earning an undergraduate degree in chemistry in 2000 from the University of Cape Coast in Ghana, and a graduate degree from Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario.

After a few years in research, he realized he didn’t want to spend the rest of my life in the lab.

“I wanted something more.”

UNC Kenan-Flagler’s OneMBA Program captured his attention. “It fit into what I wanted to do after business school. I wanted to live in the world. I wanted to have something where my work expands beyond my geographical location.”
