One of the greatest surprises when I started work as a banker was this: the university system prepared me on how to manage resources for companies but did a very poor job on how I could manage my own personal resources. In FUTO, we studied great topics in Engineering Management like Engineer Turns Manager, Managerial Accounting, etc. In all those domains, everything was on how to optimize resources for the employer (yes, the company).
Dissatisfied, I went to a legend in the bank: Emmanuel Akpobovbo, a fellow of the chartered accountant of Nigeria, and he provided a path which I remain thankful for. Simply, I wanted to understand how to manage Ndubuisi Ekekwe’s resources, not just the bank’s.
