The School of Research and Graduate Studies is the newest school at GIMPA which became operational in 2018, with a twin focus on research and graduate studies. Its goals are to facilitate research activities by the faculty and students by providing a scholarly and conducive environment for interdisciplinary team work; and enable students to engage in critical analysis, grasp theoretical perspectives and demonstrate knowledge of methodologies and relevance of scholarly endeavors to practical situations. One other key responsibility of the School is to ensure the maintenance and coordination of high standards and quality graduate programs offered by the various Schools/Faculties at GIMPA. The School has prominent scholars committed to achieving these goals.
The School’s vision is to become a leading national research Centre, recognized locally and internationally, as an effective contributor to development in Ghana, the sub-region and across the world; and leader in Ghana’s graduate education in management; public administration; law; information and communications technology; and liberal arts and social sciences.
The School’s mission is to promote a conducive environment for research by faculty and students to impact national policy and development; teaching and learning at graduate level; and general acquisition of knowledge.
