AUCC Launches International Graduate Programmes

ADABRAKA -- Beginning in September 2017, the Sam E. Jonah School of Business at the African University College of Communications (AUCC) will be offering exciting new master’s programmes. This is made possible thanks our collaboration with the Arthur Lok Jack Graduate School of Business at The University of the West Indies. The programme will be delivered via multi-modal technology, allowing enrolled students to “attend” actual classes taken at the Lok Jack Graduate School of Business in Trinidad from the comfort of their homes.

This programme is accredited by the prestigious Association of MBAs, the gold standard for MBA accreditation, making AUCC one of only two universities in Ghana offering a programme with this internationally recognized accreditation.

Classes are interactive and practical and Ghanaian students will “attend” and participate in LIVE classes with students from Trinidad & Tobago, Guyana and other countries through the multi-modal platform. The interactive tool will allow the student in Ghana to be seen and heard by the students and faculty in the class, allowing for a personal, authentic and interactive classroom experience. The courses will feature international Faculty with a wide range of industry and academic experience, exposing Ghanaian students to authentic business teaching and learning methods that will help them jumpstart their careers in a global context. 

Dr. G. Koryoe Anim-Wright, President of the African University College of Communications shared her enthusiasm about the partnership.

“This is a unique opportunity for AUCC to provide master’s programmes to our talented graduates who are eager to continue their studies with us,” she stated. “And what better way than to partner with a world-class institution such as Lok Jack Graduate School of Business?

“While employees and businesses appreciate the flexibility of online programmes, many find the experience impersonal, isolating and non-interactive,” Dr. Anim-Wright continued. “Our programme combines the best of both worlds — allowing students to immerse themselves in a classroom experience by attending actual classes using the interactive educational technology tool.”
