The University of Ghana Business School-Executive Development (UGBS-ED) re-launched its executive courses on Tuesday, 13th June, 2017, at the graduate building of UGBS. The re-launch is a strategic move to keep the ED courses relevant and up to date to reflect industry needs.
Dr. Kwesi Amponsah Tawiah, of the Department of Human Resource and Organisational Management, and Coordinator of UGBS-ED in his introductory remarks mentioned that the unit is bent on delivering courses that meet needs of their executive students. The re-launch of the courses have been carefully thought through with considerations from past experiences of the ED programme.
Mr. Frank Adu Jr., Managing Director of Cal Bank, who was the chair of the programme, in his acceptance remarks on the theme for the re-launch, observed that there is no doubt good corporate governance practices such as strong controls, independent boards, sound risk management among others, generally increases corporate reputation.
He noted, however, that other schools of thought question how, and to what extent corporate governance impacts company growth, competitiveness or corporate returns. They argue, he said, that exact linkages to corporate valuations and share prices are sometimes not obvious. He declared the ED programme dully re-launched in his closing remarks. Mr Adu Jr. expressed his appreciation for the support participants gave him to steer the programme to a successful end.
Dr. Kobby Mensah of the Department of Marketing and Entrepreneurship played the Master of Ceremony (MC) for the re-launch. In attendance at the re-launch was a cross-section of faculty and staff from the University of Ghana community; the Swiss Development Corporation (SDC) Representative, Mr Daniel Lauchenauer; Head of Programme for Sustainable Economic Development of the GIZ, Mr. Christian Widmann; and some representatives from industry.
