Accra Business School has held its 6th congregation ceremony with a call on the Academia to make MBA education easy.
President of the Institute, Bishop Gideon Titi-Ofei, who made the call, revealed that 90 students who met the school’s rigorous graduation requirement have graduated out of a total number of 145.
He was proud of the School’s vision to be the preeminent and most preferred Christian Business School in Africa.
“This year we have enrolled over 272 new students who were admitted to our re-modelled 12-month MBA awarded by Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST),” he said.
He said the School’s MBA success is founded on the belief that success is making complex things simple.
Bishop Titi-Ofei announced that the School has for the first time in the history of MBA education in Ghana introduced an MBA top-up specialization awarded by the International School of Management in Paris.
“Students upon successful completion over the 12 months period can now travel to Paris for a 10-day workshop in their areas of specialization plus a thesis to qualify for a second MBA”
He also announced the beginning of a 5-year journey to transform the school into a global one with the introduction of several MSc programs in Accounting and Finance, Human Resource, Marketing and Procurement and the introduction of an Executive Doctorate in Business Administration and Strategic leadership as part of a strategy to compete in a highly competitive knowledge market.
The school he added will collaborate with International Universities such as the University of Lincoln, University of Bolton, and University of Worcester all in a bid to accommodate the anticipated growth.
Expansion project to drive the course he announced is also on the way with the soon to be completed 1st phase of a Six Storey twin tower block comprising state-of-the-art lecture Hall, Library, Computer Lab and a 40 bed 2-star Hotel before the end of the year.
The graduation ceremony was held last week Saturday in Accra on the theme: ‘MBA education and job creation’. The overall MBA Valedictorian award went to Mrs Innocentia Ami Dogbe. It was chaired by renowned Prof. Kwame Omane-Antwi.
