Ebenezer Akesseh is a priest from the archdiocese of Accra, Ghana. He served as the Catholic Chaplain at the University of Ghana between 2006 and 2013. He obtained his first degree in Sociology and Religions from the University of Ghana in 2000. His love for teaching made him pursue a Post-Graduate Diploma in Education at the University of Cape Coast in 2001. He pursued a Master of Philosophy (MPhil) degree in Sociology in 2008 and a Master of Philosophy (MPhil) degree in Business Management in 2011 at the University of Ghana. His interest in bridging Sociology and Business Management with Theology led him to Notre Dame in 2013 to pursue a Master of Theological Studies (MTS) and a Ph. D. with Moral Theology as his area of concentration. His dissertation focused on applying Aquinas’ treatment of the virtue of justice to contemporary discussion of corruption.
