One Hill At A Time

RWANDA – Professor Krishna K. Govender is not your typical rector or university dean, if there is such a thing, nor did his path lead him to the often sought after academic post of a European or North American elite institution. After 15 years working in a “cushy job” at a small university in South Africa, Prof. Govender donned his robe and velvet hat and accepted a position as the head of the Kigali School of Finance and Banking (SFB) in the capital of Rwanda.

He says the hills and weather reminded him of his country and the mix of students struggling with tuition and school fees were reminiscent of his days growing up in a poor family. “I see the students, faculty and emerging economy,” he says, “and have great hope for their future”.
