School of Business
My name is Amaka Akinteye, I am proudly Nigerian and a first year PhD student in Finance. My research is focused on FinTech development and the survival of retail banking. This means I spend most of my time learning how these two variables interact, and improving my personal, academic, and professional skills. For me, the journey so far has been incredible because I have ‘the best supervisory team’ and a whole lot of amazing staff at the Business School!
I have an MSc in finance and investment from Sheffield Hallam University UK, obtained a BSc in Applied Accounting from Oxford Brookes University, UK. I am a Fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), UK. Prior to commencing my PhD, I have gained over fifteen years work experience in academia and corporate environment.
My picture shows 50% of my PhD life, while for the other half, I work part-time as a business school administrative assistant, spend time as an ambassador of Jesus Christ, write poems and manage my own blog www.amakakinteye.org. I enjoy gospel music, swimming, playing lawn tennis, cycling, and cooking.
