The Sam E. Jonah School of Business at the African University College of Communications (AUCC), will be offering a new master’s programmes.

This follows collaboration with the Arthur Lok Jack Graduate School of Business, at the University of West Indies.

A release from the AUCC said the programme would be delivered through multi-modal technology, allowing enrolled students to participate in actual classes taken at the Lok Jack Graduate School of Business in Trinidad, from the comfort of their homes.

It said the program was accredited by the prestigious Association of MBAs, the gold standard for MBA accreditation, making AUCC one of the only universities in Ghana offering a program with this internationally recognised accreditation.

“Classes are interactive and practical, and Ghanaian students will attend and participate in live classes with students from Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana and other countries through the multi-modal platform, the release said.

The release said the interactive tool would 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.

It said the courses would 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.

The release quoted Dr. G. Koryoe Anim-Wright, President of AUCC, “this is a unique opportunity for AUCC to provide masters programs to our talented graduates, who are eager to continue their studies with us, and what better way than to partner with a world class institution such as Lok Jack Graduate School of Business?”

The release said that whilst employees and businesses appreciated the flexibility of online programs, many found the experience impersonal, isolating and non-interactive.

“Our program 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,” it quoted Dr. Anim-Wright.

Under the partnership, the AUCC has received approval and authorisation from the National Accreditation Board to offer programs in International MBA, International Master of Strategic Marketing, Executive MBA and MBA in Sustainable Energy Management, the release said.
