THE University of Education, Winneba, (UEW) has introduced a Master of Business Administration (MBA) Degree to its list of postgraduate programmes.
The MBA, to be tenable at the College of Technology Education (Kumasi Campus) of the University, starts this year with specialisation in two areas – Marketing and Organisational Development and Human Resource Management.
Prof. Emmanuel James Flolu, the Principal of the Kumasi Campus of the University, said , the MBA programme would be expanded next year to include Accounting and Finance.
He said the introduction of the programme was part of the university’s efforts to produce top-level manpower for industry.
Speaking at a meeting with a cross-section of the alumni of the Kumasi Campus of the University in Kumasi to formally introduce himself to them, Prof. Flolu, who assumed office about six months ago, said the UEW was charging affordable fees for the programme.
He said it was the intention of the university to help many workers as possible to access higher education while still working and that was why the MBA programme had been fixed for the evenings to enable workers to attend lectures after work.
The principal said there was the need for the alumni of the university to play a leading role in building their alma mater.
“You’ve been the source of inspiration for our progress”, he told the alumni and appealed to them to initiate programmes and projects that would benefit the university.
