The Nana Korsah Memorial Award:


​In memory of Dr. Nana Korsah, the MSA Program and the College of Graduate Students are soliciting contributions to support a student award.

A scholar and educator, Dr. Korsah served as director of the Master of Science in Administration Program from June 2009 to June 2012.  A native of Ghana, he was fiercely proud of his country and actively recruited Ghanian graduates student to come to CMU.

Dr. Korsah was equally as proud of the MSA Program and plans that he initiated for new concentrations and international initiatives continue.  A warm, generous and caring man who called everyone "friend", he is missed by his colleagues and students.
