Prof Marco Trombetta of IE Business School shares his recent executive development experience in Ghana.
Cape Coast, November 2012. In a hot room where computers share the space with solar power charged lamps, Master in Finance students at IE Business School are asking questions to Veronica Kitti CEO of Alternative Sets of Assistance (ASA) Initiative, a Micro Finance Institution (MFI) based in Cape Coast and operating in the Central Region of Ghana. Just the day before, we had spent the whole day travelling on a small 4×4 bus through dusty roads of Ghana in order to visit some of the clients of the ASA initiative. Why are we all in Ghana? Because we are involved with “Financieros sin Fronteras” (FsF – Financiers without Borders) an NGO founded in 2010 by a group of people linked to IE Business School in Madrid.
