The Department of Organization and Human Resource Management (OHRM), UGBS on Thursday, April 23, 2015 held its second colloquium at the R.S. Amegashie Auditorium on the theme: Addressing Contemporary Business Challenges through Practical and Inter- Disciplinary Research.
Professor Daniel Ofori, Head of the department of OHRM said the OHRM-UGBS colloquium was initiated two years ago to fill the gaps in research and expand the form and nature of research.
According to him, the colloquium also creates a platform where ideas on research can be shared in order to augment peoples’ knowledge in research.
Professor Joshua Abor, Dean of UGBS who commended the department of OHRM for the initiative, said the colloquium sits in line with the university’s goal of engaging and promoting strategic and objective research that will impact and uphold both theory and practical development.
According to him, the colloquium would serve as an opportunity for networking and as an avenue for students and faculty to share ideas in the area of research.
He pledged the University’s support for the initiative and to draw people from all over to contribute.
