Prior to this, Nii studied Visual Arts at Accra Academy in Ghana and went on to China to pursue Petroleum Engineering Oil and Gas at Liaoning Shihua University where he graduated with a GPA of 3.54.
In between his studies in China and the United States, Nii returned to Ghana for six months and worked as an MC hosting events with the likes of Fiifi Forson and Dela of GHOne and now TV3.
Speaking of how he was able to combine different responsibilities during his MBA in the U.S., Nii mentions he had to combine them during night and day. In his own words,
"While doing my masters I worked as a Teaching Assistant with the Math and Science department where I taught General Physics and Physical Chemistry in the morning."
"At Walmart, I worked as a truck unloader in the afternoon, attended classes in the evening and drove Uber and Postmates after classes," he continued.
Nii Djormor Sackey is also a talented artist and still draws as well.
