Media personality Nana Yaa Brefo recently shared her perspective on the ongoing discourse surrounding the value of a Doctorate of Philosophy (PhD) degree versus the advantages of acquiring a foreign passport.

Brefo acknowledged the academic merit of obtaining a PhD but raised questions about how effectively Ghana has leveraged the knowledge of its scholars. She pointed out that while PhD holders in other nations have contributed significantly to technological advancements like car manufacturing, such feats are not as commonly associated with Ghanaian scholars.

During a live session on TikTok, Brefo emphasized the significance of holding a foreign passport, citing its potential to unlock numerous opportunities for better living standards.

“I’m not suggesting that pursuing a PhD is negative, but we need to see tangible benefits from the educational achievements of our scholars. Considering our current economic challenges, it’s essential to evaluate the contributions of economists in addressing these issues,” she remarked.

The discussion gained momentum following comments from Prof. Kobby Mensah, a lecturer at the University of Ghana Business School, who stated that a PhD might not be the most suitable path for immediate employment needs.

“A PhD is not a quick fix for employment or entrepreneurship. It requires dedication and is more suited for academic pursuits,” the lecturer asserted.
