It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the GIMPA Business School.
GIMPA and the Business School in particular, have a long-standing history and 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 GIMBA Business School is to become a centre of excellence in the development and application of business, management and entrepreneurial knowledge.
This vision manifests through a three-pronged approach that seeks to:
• develop and design transformative business, management and entrepreneurial programmes/curricula, create supportive learning environment, attract diverse and talented students and produce reflective leaders and managers of businesses of today and the future,
• pursue internationally 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 GIMBA Business School’s vision reflects the needs of the world of business and society, that requires 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. This 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 GIMBA Business School, as we innovate to provide more flexible and relevant programmes/curricula and delivery modes that meet the varying needs of our diverse working and regular students. The School is also well positioned through our outstanding faculty and students, to pursue internationally excellent research and training programmes that address relevant problems, policies and challenges of businesses of today and the future.
To put the GIMPA Business School on the pedestal of international recognition for its excellence in business, management and entrepreneurial knowledge development and application, we are constantly extending our international reach and status, building meaningful and credible networks, collaborations and partnerships to extend the research, knowledge dissemination/application and enhance the impact of the GIMPA Business School in Ghana and beyond.
You are welcome to contribute or engage us in our continuous journey to develop business, management and entrepreneurial leaders to “change the future, not simply cope with it.”
