It is my great pleasure to welcome you to GIMPA Business School.
GIMPA, and the Business School, in particular, have a long-standing reputation for providing high-quality business and management education, knowledge development and application. The Business School builds on this strong foundation to set itself apart as the Business School of choice in Ghana and beyond as well as the preferred partner in tackling relevant business and societal challenges. The vision of the GIMPA Business School is to be a centre of excellence in the development and application of business, management and entrepreneurial knowledge.
This vision manifests through a three-pronged strategic objective that seeks to:
- develop and design transformative business, management and entrepreneurial programmes, create a supportive learning environment, attract diverse and talented students, and produce reflective leaders and managers of businesses of today and the future,
- pursue globally excellent research and training programmes to transform the way resources, individuals, and organisations are managed so that businesses of today and the future can thrive, and
- engage meaningfully and build strategic partnerships with the business community, governmental and civil society stakeholders, and institutions in Ghana and beyond for the advancement of students, faculty and the school.
The GIMPA Business School’s vision reflects the needs of the world of business and society that require leaders and managers who are enterprising, reflective, adaptive, and resilient, in response to the constantly changing and evolving needs and requirements of businesses and society. Our vision contributes to GIMPA’s vision and strategic plan to become “a global Institute of excellence in knowledge development and application”.
This is an exciting time for the GIMPA Business School, as we innovate to provide more flexible and relevant programmes and delivery modes that meet the varying needs of our diverse working and regular students.
