The University of Ghana Business School (UGBS) launched a new strategic plan at a colourful ceremony held on Friday, 9th December 2022, at the R.S. Amegashie Auditorium to serve as a guide for the School for the next three years.
Professor Justice Nyigmah Bawole, Dean of the Business School, in his welcome address, reiterated his assertion that the Business School is a world-class institution that provides top-tier management education. He however added that the School must reassess and reposition itself to remain dedicated to its values.

In his remarks, the Chair of the event and the Provost of the College of Humanities, University of Ghana, Professor Daniel Frimpong Ofori said, "Strategy gives you discipline, focus, and structure. If you do things according to a certain structure, along that route, success will come." He thanked the Strategic Planning Committee for their efforts and expressed his delight about the Business School's plan. He further urged the School’s Management to ensure the implementation of the plan.
The highlights of the Strategic Plan were presented by Dr. Justice Mensah, a lecturer with the Department of Organisation and Human Resource Management and a member of the Strategic Planning Committee. Speaking in the stead of Professor Obi Berko Darmoah, the Chair of the Strategic Plan Committee, Dr. Mensah revealed that the strategic plan is anchored on eight pillars which were derived from the engagements with the relevant stakeholders.
