UGBS Holds Information Session on Special One Year Master's Programmes
Feb 12, 2018

The University of Ghana Business School organised an information session on its one year special master's degree programmes at the British Council on the 16th of January, 2018.  The session was to brief prospective applicants on the various special programmes on offer at the school. It was designed to suit students who qualify and wish to pursue higher education as well as develop critical managerial skills needed to fill more senior roles within various organisations. Present at the event were the various coordinators for the special programmes, Dr. Saint Kutu (MSc. Development Finance), Dr.  Kwasi Dartey-Baah (MA Management and Administration), Dr. Mahama Braimah (MA Marketing Strategy), Dr. James Abugre (MA Organisational Leadership and Governance), Dr. Ibrahim Bedi (MSc. Accounting and Finance), Prof. Robert Ebo Hinson (MSc. International Business), Dr. John Effah (MSc. Management Information System)  and Dr. Patience Aseweh Abor (MSc. Clinical Leadership and Management).

The session commenced with Dr. Mahama Braimah giving a general overview of the programmes. He highlighted on the seven special programmes ran by the School, noting that the special one-year Master's degree programmes will run based on the weekend and modular schedules as well as sandwich. He also took prospective applicants through the mode of application. He added that the programmes are designed to suit qualified and interested workers who, due to their work constraints and obligations, cannot pursue a two-year programme.

Coordinators for the special programmes also briefed prospective applicants on the course structure under each programme. Each coordinator stated the admission requirements for their respective programmes, schedules, registration deadlines, as well as the programme's content. This is to help potential applicants make informed decisions.

The information session was highly patronised by potential applicants who were given the opportunity to ask questions. They later had a one-on-one interaction with the coordinators of the various programmes.
