About UGBS

The University of Ghana Business School was established as the College of Administration by Executive Instrument – (E.I.127) at Achimota, Accra in January, 1960.  The School was renamed School of Administration (SOA) and University of Ghana Business School (UGBS) in 1962 and 2004 respectively with six departments listed below:

  • Department of Accounting
  • Department of Finance
  • Department of Marketing and Customer Management
  • Department of Operations and Management Information Systems (OMIS)
  • Department of Organization and Human Resource Management (OHRM)
  • Department of Public Administration and Health Services Management (PAHSM)

 

In addition to the teaching departments, UGBS also has the following:

Centre for Management Research and Professional Development (CMRPD)

As the premier school of business in Ghana, the University of Ghana Business School has set the pace for quality management training across a wide range of business disciplines. It’s Centre for Management Research and Professional Development (CMRPD) undertakes applied training of financial practitioners and professionals in the sub-region. CMRPD also provides specialist services including research, financial analysis, financial modelling and forecasting, change management, environmental audits, team building and assessments, performance management, organisational restructuring, and strategic plan developments.

Enterprise Development Services (EDS)

The Enterprise Development Services (EDS) was established in 2008 by the University of Ghana Business School with International Finance Corporation (Private Enterprise Partnership for Africa) support. EDS was set up to play a galvanizing role in transforming Ghana’s largely informal Small and Medium Enterprises into a sector of well-structured, profitable businesses through SME policy research, entrepreneurial training and Business Development Services.

UGBS’s business degree programmes focus on developing students that aspire to be business leaders. Students are trained at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels and in addition completing several semesters of course work, have to also complete a research report during their final year. This enables them acquire critical analytical skills, which is invaluable to further research in higher levels of education or career enhancement.

With regards to academic standing and pragmatic business acumen, UGBS prides itself in producing high-achieving and successful experts in every sphere of management endeavour. The School has links and strategic partnerships with the business community. Manifestations of these partnerships are seen in various chairs and endowments financed by players in local and international business that the business school has benefitted from over the years. Prominent industry practitioners are also frequently invited as guest lecturers to give talks on topical business issues in their various spheres of business endeavour.

To help students make the most of their future careers, the School provides the opportunity for personal development and career planning. UGBS, through its student representatives, organises job fairs, motivational seminars and workshops on career-related issues. Executive students also have the opportunity to travel overseas to participate in conferences and workshops, for networking and enhancing their career opportunities.

The school has over the past few years experienced an increase in the number of foreign students for our degree programmes. UGBS also has international affiliations with other schools scattered all over the globe with important synergistic benefits accruing to the business school as a result of these international linkages. Our students also have the opportunity to travel overseas to participate in conferences and workshops.
