May 2019 SolBridge Alumni Highlight: Fabrice Ekra
This month we recognize Fabrice Ekra, a SolBridge alumnus from Côte d’Ivoire. Currently a Senior Project Assistant at the International Organization for Migration (IOM), Côte d’Ivoire the UN agency in charge of migrations. IOM is committed to the principle that humane and orderly migration benefits migrants and society.
Fabrice currently works on an Italian funded project that supports local capacities to manage migration through community-based initiatives in Côte d’Ivoire effectively. This project was launched to support the Government of Côte d’Ivoire in its efforts to tackle irregular migration by facilitating access to local economic opportunities for disadvantaged people between 18-35 years of age.
Fabrice completed his MBA at SolBridge in June 2012. With minimal professional experience, he entered a Seoul based International company by the name of MK International Inc. where he worked for five years as the Manager of the International Business Department. Fabrice gained practical knowledge and a set of skills in the trade of goods, facilitation of negotiations, management of personnel, business etiquette and visual content production.
Armed with the SolBridge spirit and Asian thought leadership, he is now able to thrive in his work at the service of the IOM.
