UGBS Organises MA Management & Administration Information Session
Feb 19, 2015

University of Ghana Business School’s (UGBS) Organisation and Human Resource Management Department (OHRM), last Thursday, 26th February 2015, organized an information session on its Master of Arts (MA) in Management & Administration programme at British Council, Accra.

Addressing the hall of prospective students, Dr. Olivia Anku-Tsede, the Programme Coordinator, said the objective of the Department is to explore Ghana’s untapped human capital.
This, it does by offering students in-depth training in management and administration and human resource management amongst others.

The MA in Management & Administration programme, therefore, comes as a direct response to market trends and the need for specialization and professionalism in administration and management roles, she said.

She informed the gathering, majority of whom were prospective students, that the programme is designed to meet a number of critical objectives which include equipping students with skills in developing and managing processes and procedures as well as meet the needs of persons holding key administrative and managerial positions.

According to Dr. Anku-Tsede, students will be required to take various courses specially tailored to the worker with lecture days averaging 3 per week over a year (full time).
Students will then be required to write a long essay in a number of formats after which they will be awarded a MA Degree in Management & Administration.

Dr. Anku-Tsede answered a number of questions on the minimum entry requirements, tuition fees, mode of application to the Programme, and on other graduate programmes the Department runs.

Participants at the information session comprised personnel from various security services including the police, fire and immigration services as well as some members of the media.
Also present were Prof. Dan Ofori, Head of the OHRM Department, who fielded questions as well, and Mr. Aaron Makafui Ametorwo, facilitator of the event.
