The Vice Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast, Prof. D. D. Kuupole has given the assurance that the university is still focused on its core mandate of training manpower for the education sector in Ghana. He said the university’s decision to go into other fields of study was “in response to the clarion call from the market to run other courses apart from teaching”.
Prof. Kuupole made this known when a delegation from the University of Tel Aviv, Israel called on him in his office to establish cooperation between the two universities and the future recruitment of students to participate in a one year M.B.A course at the University of Tel Aviv.
The leader of the delegation, Professor Simon Benninga said they were impressed with what they had seen from their short visit and hoped the discussions would be fruitful and beneficial to the two institutions.
The Dean of the School of Business, Mr. Edward Marfo in his contribution said ‘the School wants to become the Centre of Excellence in Entrepreneurship, Small and Medium Enterprises among others in Ghana’, adding, “since little or no attention has been given to that sector in terms of training”.
Present at the meeting were the Registrar, Mr. John Kofi Nyan, Prof. Isaac Amuah, Director, Centre for International Education, U. C. C, Ms. Julia Mor, University of Tel Aviv and Mrs. Emelia Ampong-Botcwey of the Methodist University College, Wenchi campus who is also an alumna of the Sofaer International MBA programme at the University of Tel Aviv.
