Professor Joseph Kwasi: From Hawking Sandals To Becoming First Person In The World To Attain Three Unique PhDs In Accounting

  • Professor Joseph Kwasi Agyemang became the first person in the world to attain three unique PhDs in Accounting
  • The University of Eswatini Senior Lecturer has always been fascinated with numbers

Attaining a PhD is no walk in the park. As of 2020, the Daily Nation reported that Kenya had less than 10,000 PhD holders. 

According to the publication, 369 students graduated out of the 1,000 needed yearly. Only 20 percent of PhD students complete their studies, a report by the Commission of University Education (CUE) showed. 

Professor Joseph Kwasi Agyemang has made history by attaining three separate PhDs in Accounting Sciences (Auditing) from the University of South Africa, Accounting (Accounting Information) from Al-Madinah International University in Malaysia, and the third on in Accounting (Public Sector Accounting) from Universidad Central de Nicaragua in Nicaragua.

“I was inspired to embark on this academic journey due to my enduring fascination with numbers and their ability to unveil profound insights about business organizations. My desire was to delve extensively into the realm of accounting, aiming to acquire comprehensive understanding of every facet within this field”, he was quoted by modernghana.com.

The Senior Lecturer in the Accounting and Finance Department at the University of Eswatini holds a Master of Philosophy in Accounting Sciences from the University of South Africa, a Master of Commerce from Sikkim Manipal University in India, and a Master of Financial Management from Amity University Uttar Pradesh in India. 

Professor Joseph Kwasi Struggles

His journey has not been an easy one. To pay his fees, he had to become a hawker selling sandals. This earned him the name “Africa” thanks to his never give up attitude.

Other qualifications

Professor Joseph Kwasi Agyemang has a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting from the Christian Service University.

He also has a Higher National Diploma in Accountancy from Sunyani Technical University in Ghana and certifications from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), Chartered Accountants (CA), Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), and Chartered Professional Accountants (CPA).
