First Class: The University College aims to provide first class training, excellent facilities and generally good outlook – surroundings; that is, first in everything. Evangelical C… [+] hristian University: By this we mean the University College heralds the good news of Jesus Christ and believes in the historic doctrines of the Christian faith. Moral Uprightness: Conduct based on Christian morality and lifestyle which shows consistent regard to the Word of God and the rule of law. Academic Excellence: Professionally and academically competent and ability to apply knowledge to solving or handling contemporary issues affecting church and society. Passion to Serve: Serving with great zeal and enthusiasm. OUR MISSION STATEMENT The Christian Service University College is an Academic Centre of Excellence for teaching, research and service in Theology, Applied Science and Humanities in an Evangelical and sound ethical environment. A Brief History The College began as a merger of two visions in January 1974. A group of Ghanaian Christians had a vision of an interdenominational, evangelical institution of a high academic standard, which would train men and women for all types of Christian Ministry. The second group comprised expatriate missionaries who had a vision of an institution to train workers from the well-established church in southern Ghana for a thrust into northern Ghana and neighboring countries where the church was relatively very small. Evangelical Christianity in Ghana in the late 1960's and 1970's was characterized, among other things, by intimate interaction and collaboration and blurring of denominational, mission and group distinctions. The Worldwide Evangelization for Christ (WEC), which was one of the missionary groups in the second group of missionaries, had acquired property in Kumasi on which they had built four dwelling houses and a radio studio with plans to construct a large building to serve as the beginning of a training college. Soon the two visions merged. In October 1974, the first residential classes started with four students and the College grew from strength to strength and has now become an Evangelical Christian University College. Our Core Values The Christian Service University College cherishes and upholds the following core values which it deems as central and basic to the institution. They are: The Lordship of Jesus Christ. Integrity Hard Work Good Stewardship of Resources Mutual Support and Care We provide top facilities for students: CSUC places you in an academically stimulating environment that is both spiritually enriching and socially fulfilling. Our comprehensive and innovative approach towards education and research will help contribute to your future success and inspire you to realise your full potential as entrepreneurial and technology-savvy leaders.

GIMPA Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration

Ghana Accra Kumasi Takoradi Tema September 2017

Overview of GIMPA The Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) was established in 1961 as a joint Ghana Government/United Nations (UN) special fund project. Originally named the Institute of Public Administration, it was set up as one of the key strategic institutions to develop the public administrative system, to provide civil servants with administrative and professional competence, and to plan and administer national, regional and local services. In… [+] 1966, the joint sponsorship ended and the UN formally handed over the Institute to the Government of Ghana. In 1969, the Institute was then re-designated as the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration to reflect its expanded functions. For more than 50 years, GIMPA’s activities have been guided by five successive mandates, beginning with the first legislative instrument of 1961 to the current GIMPA Act, 2004 (Act 676). Each mandate affirmed the status of the Institute as the national management development institute to provide for the study of public administration and management of Ghana. By its latest mandate, GIMPA now offers courses in its areas of competence leading to the award of certificates, diplomas and degrees up to the doctoral level. The areas of competence are defined to include training and education in leadership, management, public administration and technology. Today, GIMPA has transformed itself into the leading management development institute and is an independent public tertiary institution with financial and operational autonomy. GIMPA’s mission is to maintain a Centre of Excellence for training in public and business administration, by continuously enhancing the capability of middle and top level executives in public and private sectors as well as non-governmental organisations (NGOs) both in Ghana and internationally, to manage their institutions and enterprises efficiently and effectively. The Institute is accredited by the National Accreditation Board. In addition to the institutional accreditation, GIMPA’s academic programmes are also accredited by the National Accreditation Board. The Institute is made up of four schools, namely: Business School School of Public Service and Governance Faculty of Law School of Technology Vision To be a global Institute of excellence in knowledge development and application.

Presbyterian University College

Ghana Abetifi Akropong Agogo Tema Kumasi September 2017 + 1 more

About PUCG HISTORICAL BACKGROUND According to the church history, in 1843, the Presbyterian Church of Ghana established the first primary school in the country. This sparked off a series of bold, visionary and pioneering initiatives in the development of education in the country. Five years later, it established the Presbyterian Training College (PTC) at Akropong, the second higher educational institution in West Africa after Fourah Bay College in Sierra Leone. Since… [+] those early beginnings, the Presbyterian Church of Ghana has established and managed, in partnership with the Government of Ghana, hundreds of primary schools, many high schools and colleges of education. These schools and colleges, guided by the proverbial Presbyterian discipline, set very high moral as well as educational standards, which have characterized the Presbyterian Education tradition. Also in partnership with government, the church has provided and managed Professional, Technical and Vocational Institutions in a wide range of fields including Agriculture and Health. Specifically, the church has established 1,886 schools comprising 490 Nurseries, 973 Primary Schools, 388 Junior High Schools, five (5) Vocational Institutes, five (5) Colleges of Education and 25 Senior High Schools. With the establishment of the Presbyterian Training College (PTC), it was hoped that, like the Fourah Bay College in Sierra Leone, it might one day be upgraded to a university. However, after several years, it was not until 1996 that the Synod of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana at that time took the bold decision to initiate steps into establishing a university. The body charged with pushing forward this initiative, the Presbyterian University Implementation Committee, was formally established in 1998. It is through these efforts and the determination of the Church that the Presbyterian University College, Ghana has come into being. THE VISION This Presbyterian University College, Ghana, is envisaged as “A University of excellence which blends modern trends that reflect Christian principles”. THE MISSION The mission of the University is ‘‘To design and implement relevant academic and Professional programmes of teaching, research and outreach for a global population within the context of Christian ethics that produce holistic human development.’’ OBJECTIVES The objectives for which the University is founded are: To provide for and promote University education, learning and research, To acquire and disseminate knowledge and information, To foster relationships with other institutions of higher learning, per sons and bodies. To produce disciplined, self-motivated individuals and leaders with moral and intellectual values in the realization of their responsibilities to God, fellow citizens and the state. Without prejudice to the generality of its powers, the University shall be guided by the following principles in the realization of its objectives: that in determining the courses and programmes to be taught emphasis shall be placed on a balanced pursuit of the humanities, the basic sciences, the development, application and management of technology, which are of special relevance to the needs and aspirations of Ghanaians in particular, and others in general; that higher education in this University shall be available to all Ghanaians and others who are capable of benefiting from it; that research shall be undertaken in all courses which are taught in the University but with attention to courses which relate to the social, cultural, economic, scientific, technical and other problems which exists in Ghana or elsewhere in Africa; that the fruits of research and knowledge generally shall be spread abroad by the publication of books and papers and by any other suitable means; that students shall be taught methods of critical and independent thought, while being made aware that they have a responsibility to use their education for the service of the Church, country and humanity; that as far as practicable the students shall be trained to be innovative and entrepreneurial to enhance socio- economic development; that the University shall operationalize local, regional and global needs assessment as the basis for practical and multi-disciplinary outreach programmes in the local and regional communities; that the University shall inculcate in the student ethical, moral and intellectual values that manifest in courage, discipline, fair play, self motivation and respect for the dignity of an honest life. THE CONCEPT The Presbyterian University College is conceived as a response to the challenge presented by the high demand for student admission in Ghanaian Universities (low access), the perceived lowering of academic standards and the erosion of moral and ethical values in the Ghanaian Society. It will relate its programmes to the developmental needs of Ghana in the 21st Century and beyond, in terms of training, research, extension and service. It will identify and fill important niches in the development of higher education in the country. The main concepts are as follows: The College is open to all students and staff without discrimination on the basis of religion, race, ethnic origin or gender. It is a fee-paying institution, with a mechanism to promote sponsorship for needy students. It is a multi-campus university. The College will take advantage of the cool, semi-temperate weather in some of its locations to attract external students and to promote a broad agricultural programme. Owing to the location of some of the Campuses, the College will be residential for both staff and students; the university will however promote the development of hostels for students and staff housing through private enterprise. The College will gradually introduce programmes in the social sciences, the humanities, science and technology, languages, theology and mission studies, health and medical studies such as nursing, medicine and dentistry (as indicated elsewhere in this handbook) in accordance with the University’s Strategic Plan.

University Of Professional Studies

Ghana Accra September 2017

HELLO, AND WELCOME TO UPSA As one of the fastest-rising young universities, our core values are Respect, Service and Integrity. From faculty, through non-teaching staff, students, the business community, we strive to be professionals. ABEDNEGO FEEHI OKOE AMARTEY Vice Chancellor of UPSA Professor of Management HISTORY OF UPSA The University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) is a public university that provides both academic and business professional… [+] education in Ghana. With fifty (50) years of experience, the University has gained a reputation as the oldest professional accountancy and management tuition provider having many of its products in key leadership positions in Ghana and elsewhere. The University was the first and is still the only public institution with the mandate to offer both academic degrees and provide training for higher Professional education in Ghana. The University currently has a student population of about eleven thousand three hundred (11,300). The University was founded in 1965 as a private professional business education tuition provider and was taken over by government in 1978 by the Institute of Professional Studies Decree, 1978 (SMCD 200). It was subsequently established as a tertiary institution with a mandate to provide tertiary and professional education in the academic disciplines of Accountancy, Management and other related areas of study by the Institute of Professional Studies Act, (Act 566), 1999. The then IPS had been offering tuition for various business professional programmes that were internationally recognized. In this respect, the University has contributed immensely to the teaching and practice of Accountancy and Management in Ghana. In September 2005, the Institute introduced Bachelor Degree Programmes in its various mandated disciplines to give meaning to the IPS Act 566. It received a Presidential Charter in September 2008, conferring on it the status of a full-fledged public university. The University currently offers Undergraduate and Master’s Degrees in several programmes. The combination of scholarship with professionalism is the foundation of the university’s unique profile. The development of the initial and new range of academic programmes coupled with trends in tertiary education at both local and international levels called for an amendment of the existing Act 566 of 1999. Subsequently, the University of Professional Studies Act, 2012 (ACT 850) was enacted to rename the Institute as a University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA). VISION To be the world class education provider in both academic and professional discipline, nationally entrenched, regionally relevant and globally recognized. CREDO Knowledge, a basis for development is relevant when shared and used. MISSION STATEMENT We strive to provide and promote higher professional education and training in business and other social sciences related discipline by leveraging a structured mix of scholarship with professionalism in Ghana and beyond. We believe our first responsibility is to the students, staff, parents, alumni and all other stake holders. In meeting their need, everything we do epitomize scholarship with professionalism. A scholarship to us means “the pursuit and acquisition of knowledge” and Professionalism means “application of knowledge for development in an ethical way” these two are the key driven forces of UPSA’s existence. VALUES Integrity, Respect and Service are the key Values of UPSA’s Code of conduct. INTEGRITY UPSA is determined to act consistently in accordance with its principles and espoused values. RESPECT Respect in the University’s community means respect for one’s self, others and the University’s values. SERVICE Service in the UPSA community means recognizing social needs and applying our strengths and knowledge to address those needs. NORMS Developing a system that focuses on the head, heart and hands within an intensive teaching, learning and research environment is the stream flowing through UPSA’s Code of Conduct. We consider the norms stated in the Draft Policy for tertiary education in Ghana as our minimum target to be responsive to and operate within the norms and ethical guidelines of all relevant professional bodies. Continual Improvement is the Hallmark of UPSA’s Vision and Mission. These are what the “People of UPSA” that is Students, Staff, Alumni, Parents; other Stakeholders- strive for always. QUALITY STATEMENT “Superior Educational Value” STRATEGIC FOCUS The strategy is to position UPSA as a unique business education and research model that blends Scholarship with Professionalism and a University of excellence in Africa and beyond.

The mission was to develop a new breed of leaders for the continent with… [+] holistic education that emphasizes academic excellence, Christian values, discipline and ethical values in a Christ centered environment. The government of Ghana readily embraced the idea in 1988, when Dr. Donkor sought permission for the All Nations University. But it was not until 1996 when the master plan was presented to the National Accreditation Board (NAB). Upon the advice of NAB, the University was incorporated in April 1996 and subsequently received the authority to establish the All Nations University in May 1996. After years of preparations, the University opened its doors to 37 pioneering students on November 4, 2002 for the Business and Computer Science undergraduate programs. Today ANUC has 12 accredited programs and over 2500 students. Degree programs are in the following disciplines: School of Business Business Administration in Accounting Business Administration in Banking Finance Business Administration in Entrepreneurship Business Administration in Human Resource Management Business Administration in Marketing - School of Engineering Bachelor of Engineering( Oil & Gas) Bachelor of Engineering(Biomedical) Bachelor of Engineering (Electronics & Communications) Bachelor of Engineering(Computer ) Bachelor of Engineering Science((Hons) School of Humanities & Sciences Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies with Business Administration BSc. Nursing Short-Term Courses: Managerial Decision Making: The Role of Case Teaching and Writing in Business Management Education (Course duration: Month of May each year) Due to the University’s high academic standards, many graduates excel both in the field of work and academia. As a result, ANUC has attracted students from many countries such as Angola, Benin, Cameroon, Canada, Chad, Congo Brazaville, Democratic Republic of Congo, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Liberia, Niger, Nigeria, Romania, Rwanda, South Sudan, and Togo.

The Akrofi-Christaller Institute of Theology, Mission and Culture is a postgraduate… [+] research and training Institute fully accredited by the National Accreditation Board of the Ministry of Education as a tertiary institution with a Presidential Charter to award its own degrees. It is a research university promoting African innovation and excellence and dedicated to the study and documentation of Christian history, thought and life in Ghana and in Africa as a whole, in relation to their African setting and to world Christianity. ACI seeks to strengthen Christian witness in the modern Africa and world context through Christian scholarship. Named after two past great scholars of the Twi language and pioneer figures in the cultural witness of the Church in Ghana, Clement Anderson Akrofi and Johannes Gottlieb Christaller, the Akrofi-Christaller Institute of Theology, Mission and Culture (ACI) (formerly Akrofi-Christaller Memorial Centre for Mission Research and Applied Theology, ACMC) seeks to be at the cutting edge of the church’s mission and encounter with society and culture in Ghana, Africa and the wider world. The Institute stands in a tradition that combines piety, creativity and academic excellence in the furtherance of the witness to the gospel in Ghana and across Africa. This was the hallmark of the training given in the historic Akropong Seminary whose buildings, (Basel House in Akropong-Akuapem), constructed in the 1840s and 1860s but renovated in 1992, and expanded in 1996-1998, the Institute now occupies. The Institute has modern and well-maintained residential and catering facilities, a significant and up-to-date specialist library, and lecture and study facilities in a historic setting where issues of gospel and culture are a day-to-day concern. The 40 staff members seek to model Christian community, meeting for daily worship as the accompaniment of academic and pastoral activities. The Institute was formally established in 1987 as an independent body, a company limited by guarantee and registered under the Companies Code as a charity. The legal and administrative structures of the Institute were designed with a view to creating an institution that would be sustainable, financially self-supporting and sufficiently open to serve also the needs of the wider Christian and academic communities. Vision To be a pace-setting academic and pastoral institution, training Christian workers and leaders for effective mission in the African Context. Mission The Institute seeks to: 1. Develop academic programmes that provide adequate tools for serious and creative research into African Christianity and the African contribution to world Christianity, as well as to offer new opportunities for meaningful and relevant theological research and publication. 2. Serve the wider Christian community in Ghana, Africa and world-wide, by focusing its research and training on issues of Christian mission in the African context, in order to help the Christian community in Africa better understand its task and witness more effectively to the Kingdom of God in Africa and in the wider world. Our Objectives i. To provide training in mission research methods, recording of local history, contextualization and other relevant subjects for those interested and engaged in situations of mission, evangelism and socio-political and cultural transformation. ii. To co-operate with other academic, church and mission institutions, agencies and departments within and outside Ghana, concerned with identifying important missiological issues for study, research and documentation, and training and action in mission. iii. To facilitate study and continuing education for ministers and other church personnel, students and researchers in mission-related subjects from both within and outside Ghana. iv. To assemble relevant literature, documentation and information for theological reflection on the church’s life and mission, develop library, microform and computer facilities, disseminate ideas and information through audio-visuals, publications and a journal. v. To maintain a community life marked by Christian worship and commitment to Christian mission and service. vi. To be as much as possible a living laboratory in mission and to partner with other institutions, agencies, centres and committees, both within and outside Ghana, engaged in reflection and action in the church’s mission, through mutual [-]
