The University of Ghana Business School (UGBS), on Monday, March 9, 2015 held an opening ceremony at its graduate building to commence the Global Network for Advanced Management (GNAM) week.
In welcoming participants to the programme the Coordinator of UGBS Marketing and Communications Unit, Dr. Kobby Mensah, said GNAM is a network of 27 business and management schools around the globe, of which UGBS is a part, that seeks to connect member schools from various regions, countries, cultures, and economies to interact on issues that challenge management and the business environment.
He continued that 650 Master of Business Administration (MBA) students are currently undergoing one week study tours in the various schools within the Network, with UGBS hosting 7 students from Yale University’s Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) programme and an MBA graduate from Brazil.
The students, he said, will participate in a number of activities including excursions and lectures on an array of topics spanning public administration, finance, human resource development, and marketing within the Ghanaian and African context.
Speaking on behalf of the Dean of UGBS, Dr. John Effah, Coordinator of the School’s International Relations Office, spoke briefly about UGBS, including its various programmes and campuses.
He said the School underscores internationalisation as important to its growth strategy and has thus established relationships with a number of partners across Europe, Asia, the Americas and Africa.
He also expressed the hope that the visit proves fruitful to the visiting students and helps shape their perceptions about Ghana, and Africa in general.
Also present at the event were members of faculty, the School Administrator, Mrs. Stella Dovlo and the School’s International Relations Officer, Ms. Betty Brew.
