UGBS alumnus emerges overall best in ACCA’s AAA examination


A past student of the University of Ghana Business School, Nana Adwoa Oduraa Asomaning-Agyei, has emerged the overall best graduating student in Advanced Audit and Assurance (AAA) examination of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) in June 2022.

She was the first in Ghana out of the 8,313 and the seventh best globally.

Nana Adwoa Oduraa Asomaning-Agyei is a Chartered Accountant and an affiliate of the ACCA with KPMG.

The Chartered Account was among 110 prospective members who wrote the ACCA global examination in 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022 and passed with distinction.

Prior to her joining the ACCA, Ms Asomaning-Agyei graduated with a First Class (Honours) degree in Accounting in 2021 from the UGBS.

In an interview at the ACCA Future Members Awards and Recognition 2022, the learned old student of Wesley Girls’ High School expressed gratitude to God, her parents as well as teachers.

“I have been lucky to have been tutored by caring and lovely teachers, particularly Ansa Otu and Michael Amesimeku, formerly of the PRESEC Staff School, Madina, Accra, as well as Charlotte Korsah and Hector Kunkpeh, both of WEY GEY HEY.” She said.

Ms Asomaning-Agyei added, “I am also grateful to my parents, Emmanuel Agyei and Eva Maame Foriwaa Adu-Ntiamoah, for supporting my education and encouraging me to always be the best.”

President of the ACCA Ghana Network Panel, Irislyn Wilson, in a speech read on her behalf, said the ACCA had, for many years, trained many accounting professionals throughout the world who had made great strides in different areas.

Meanwhile a member of the ACCA Ghana Network Panel, Colonel Noble Carl Doe Dei-Alorse, who was the guest speaker at the awards, advised chartered accountants to master new digital trends and technology in order to stay relevant and offer services that were currently needed.

“If you are a chartered accountant and you have not mastered that space yet, then you need to fly, not walk nor run, because the world has left you behind,” he said.

The Chief Instructor of the Army Faculty, Ghana Military Academy also added that accountants needed globally accepted qualifications, such as the ACCA, to propel them with adequate skills, expertise and the right exposure to tackle global issues, not just in accounting but also management and leadership.
