The University of Professional Studies (UPSA) has graduated its first batch of students as Doctors of Philosophy in Marketing and Postgraduate Diplomas, in its Leadership and Organisational Development program.

The ceremony was the fifth session of the 14th congregation for 4,360 final year students of the 2021/2022 academic year cohorts which also includes 18 postgraduate Diplomas, 951 Masters, and nine PhD students.

The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Abednego F.O. Amartey who spoke during the graduating ceremony, said the university was committed to making a difference and impacting society adding that, “we do this by producing quality graduates who contribute to changing the world.”

“The world had changed and it had challenged leaders to be creative and innovative explaining that its graduate programs bridge the gap between academia and industry needs.

“The postgraduate Diploma in Leadership and Organisational Development was purposely developed in response to the demands of the cooperation between the University and AngloGold Ashanti.”

Explaining further, Prof.Amartey said it was evident that the key to sustaining the business and operations of AngloGold Ashanti, was its people.

He stated that at the time when gold prices took a downturn affecting profitability, they did not lay off workers, rather they invested in building the capacity of its human resource.

He also mentioned that its Master of Arts in Peace, Security, and Intelligence Management program was timely because the country needed security operatives with keen intellectual and analytical skills to identify, tackle and respond to emerging security challenges in the sub-region.

“In partnership with National Security led by the hardworking Mr Kan Dapaah, this program was developed to equip graduates with specialized skills set in research, innovative thinking in growing fields of peace, security, and intelligence management,” the Vice Chancellor said.

According to Prof.Amartey, UPSA for decades had built a formidable reputation for imparting professional skills training in marketing, accounting, banking, finance, and others.

He added that the PhD program leverages incorporating theoretical and practical teaching and research training in the design, execution, and presentation of original research.

Prof.Amartey mentioned that the university had received accreditation for the introduction of the Master of Business Administration in Corporate Communications, Master of Philosophy in Accounting, and Doctor of Philosophy in accounting programs in the 2022/2023 academic year.
