What makes Adenike Macaulay a stand-out MBA candidate?

As the first female general manager of sales at Lufthansa Group for Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea, and the first Nigerian in the role, Adenike is forging the way for change. Identified last year as one of Leading Ladies Africa’s annual 100 most inspiring women, and selected as Woman of the Week by The Guardian, Nigeria, Adenike continues to be recognised for excellence. Since graduating from the University of Lagos in Systems Engineering, Adenike has become an airline sales expert, amassing over 10 years’ experience in the industry, primarily managing aviation sales and marketing. Alongside her current role leading all sales, marketing, servicing and commercial activities for Germany’s largest airline, Lagos-based Adenike embarked on the Distance Learning MBA, all while raising three young daughters. One year later and she’s still soaring; we spoke to Adenike to find out more.
