The maiden Fellowship Conferment Ceremony was to duly recognise some members of the revered Accounting body as fellows for their dedication, discipline and industry-wide contribution to accounting in both Ghana and globally. The fellowship status is the highest designation a member can attain in his or her professional career as a Chartered Accountant.
Professor Mohammed Amidu is a Chartered Accountant with many years of experience. He has over 17 years of experience in teaching both local and abroad at the university level. He has taught a wide range of courses in both Accounting and Finance. They include Accounting Theory, Accounting for Sustainability, Principles of Taxation, Taxes and Business Strategy, Financial Services Management, Bank Management, International Banking among others. Prof. Amidu’s contribution to accounting and finance literature, in areas of Financial Inclusion and Literacy, Development Finance, Accounting Information Quality, Corporate Governance, Banking Market Structure and Stability, and Corporate Tax Policy, is a very significant one.
In an interview with Professor Amidu, he spoke about how proud and privileged he is to be honoured as a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants, Ghana, especially with it being the maiden edition. He stated, “From a humble beginning, I chartered almost 17 years ago, that is 2005, and conferring fellowship to me in 2022, I think it is an honour and a privilege and I am very grateful”. He believes being a Chartered Accountant and for that matter a Fellow, he owes the Department, the Business School and the University more responsibility. He will therefore continue to put more professionalism into his job and do his best to honour his responsibility as a Fellow of the Institute.
The University of Ghana Business School is proud of Professor Amidu and wishes him well in all his endeavours.
