The Dean of the University of Ghana Business School, Professor Justice N. Bawole has emphasised the need to create businesses that would outlive political regimes and traditions, grow to become multinationals and create a vibrant business environment in the country.
The Dean said this during an educational event organised by the Society Influencers Foundation (SIF) in partnership with UGBS, at the R.S. Amegashie Auditorium, the theme "Trans-Political Business in Ghana." He used the opportunity to brief the participants on the various initiatives ongoing at the Business School. He also informed the participants of the numerous revisions to the curriculum to ensure that students are well-equipped and remain relevant.
Professor Bawole further briefed the gathering about the newly opened innovation and incubation hub at the Business School. He indicated that the hub is to equip students with innovative and entrepreneurial skills. The Dean stressed the efforts being made by the Business school to ensure that the students graduate to become business owners.
Professor Bawole also advised Ghanaians to view all businesses as part of the engine of economic growth and not align them with any political party. He added that by doing that there will be the possibility of businesses transcending every political regime.
In attendance were dignitaries from political and business institutions such as Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketia (National Chairman, NDC), Dr. Hassan Ayariga (Chairman and CEO at Haulage Company, APC Flagbearer), Mr. John Appiah (CEO, E-Transact), Dr. Anthony Obeng (Former CEO, Minerals Commission), and Mr. Frank Adu (Former CEO, CAL Bank).
