By Joyce Boahemaa Fosu
The Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration, GIMPA is delighted to be working with Carleton University, Canada to offer exchange programmes and joint classes for the beneficiary students by the close of 2023.
The partnership, which is yet to be finalised, will enable GIMPA and Carleton students to travel to Canada and vice versa on exchange programmes and also engage in joint classes online.
This was mentioned at a meeting with some officials of Carleton University and GIMPA on possible collaborative engagements between the two Universities on February 20, 2023.
The meeting which was held at the Rectorate, Greenhill was attended by the Rector of GIMPA, Prof. Samuel Kwaku Bonsu, the Deputy Rector, Prof. Martin Morgan Tuuli, Mrs. Victoria Kunbour, the Secretary of the Institute and Prof. Samuel Famiyeh, the Dean of Business School on the GIMPA. From Carleton were Dr. Dana Brown, Dean of the Sprott School of Business, Prof. Isaac Otchere, Professor of Finance, Sprott School of Business, and Ms. Mawuena Torkornoo, Manager, External Relations.
Prof. Bonsu noted that the online joint classes especially would help build the capacity of students at a minimal cost and was worth exploring.
Among other things discussed was the possibility of Carleton helping to sponsor the upcoming free tuition of the 100 brilliant but needy students’ project that GIMPA is about to roll out, reviving the modular programme by making it a joint programme between GIMPA and Carleton with a double certificate, joint faculty and facilitation of exchange programmes for GIMPA faculty.
‘This is an excellent partnership with great benefits for both our students and yours. It is a nice idea and we need to start mapping out the guidelines to support it,’ said Dr. Brown.
