According to a World Economic Forum publication originally published on The World Bank’s Education for Global Development blog, academic rankings now form an important part of the tertiary education ethos, both locally and globally. These rankings have evolved to possess commercial value, and, as such, companies and organisations responsible for the development of these rankings have also become more sophisticated. These rankings also serve as reference points for prospective students, parents, employers, and the government regarding the quality of tertiary institutions in the country, and across the globe.
A recently published 2021 AD Scientific Index has ranked six (6) University of Ghana Business School (UGBS) faculty as part of the top 100 lecturers in the country. The World Scientist and University Rankings 2021 ranked the lecturers for their research work and impact of their various universities, with three (3) of UGBS faculty making the top fifty (50) list. Professor Joshua Y. Abor, former Dean of UGBS and with the Department of Finance, ranked 8th in Ghana. Professor Robert Ebo Hinson (Department of Marketing and Entrepreneurship, UGBS) ranked 20th in Ghana. Professor Richard Boateng (Department of Operations and Management Information Systems, UGBS) ranked 35th in Ghana, while Professor Mohammed Amidu (Department of Accounting, UGBS) placed 60th. Professors Bedman Narteh (Department of Marketing and Entrepreneurship, UGBS) and Kwasi Dartey Baah (Department of Organisation and Human Resource Management, UGBS) ranked 70th and 95th in Ghana respectively.
These rankings are a testament to the Business School’s resolve to become a world-class business school that develops leaders for the global stage through the provision of superb management education, and dissemination of pertinent cutting-edge research that address national and global development needs.
We say “ayekoo” to them and congratulate them for being pacesetters and trailblazers for other faculty members.
