Top Story: Ghana loses Outstanding International Business & Marketing Prof. to Rwanda's University

Having been recognized in the academic environment as the 2021 leading marketing scholar in Africa, thoughtful academicians in Ghana possibly thought he would perhaps deploy his outstanding talents to champion the progressive agenda of Ghanaian Universities, in the position of a Vice-Chancellor. However, University of Kigali, a Rwandan-based ranking tertiary Institution was faster enough to win the bid, in the face of the intense international competition around Professor Robert Ebo Hinson. Though he is not far away from the African soil, it would have been a more winning game for Ghana, if his service in that high ranking role was retained here. 

The renowned professor on records, has served at the University of Ghana Business School in various capacities, but there is still more he could do for the University, if he chose to stay in Ghana. At UG, Prof. Hinson quadrupled as the Head of Department, Head of Hall, Coordinator of the Master of Science (International Business) Degree Programme and Acting Director of Institutional Advancement. This clearly shows how resourceful he is in the areas of academics and leadership.

Aside being a Chartered Marketer - a qualification he obtained from UK's Chartered Institute of Marketing, Professor Hinson also holds two doctorate degrees (one in Marketing, and another in International Business Development) from University of Ghana and Aalborg University Business School, Denmark respectively.

Just as the conditions of service and other benefits due Lecturers in Ghana are demotivating Top Ghanaian academic stars to move elsewhere, Professor Hinson might have also been triggered by those push factors, or even more hidden ones, not best known by lecturers and teachers here.

If the narrative of disrespect towards lecturers in Ghana do not change, over time, the country will continue to lose top talents in her academic arena, to countries that are willing to serve them better.
