MR Stephen Boateng, better known as Mr Kwabena Kesse or Kessben, was among the 410 people from the School of Graduate Studies at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST, Kumasi who graduated with masters and doctorate degrees.
In a country where not many people with a wide range of business concerns attached any importance to furthering their education, Mr Kesse, who is the Managing Director of the Kessben Group of Companies, saw the need to move another step higher in education by staying for a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree in Finance.
He holds a first class honours degree in Economics and Law from the same university.
According to him, education was very important in every legitimate activity in this era of globalisation.
Addressing the congregation, the Vice-Chancellor of KNUST, Prof. K.K. Adarkwa, commended the graduands for working hard to come out successfully.
He said because of the university's well-placed emphasis on postgraduate studies, it was seeing a gradual increase in the number of postgraduate students and more specifically those completing their studies within the stipulated period.
