Joseph Budu
Lecturer

    josbudu@gimpa.edu.gh

MPhil in Management Information Systems Univ. of Ghana, Legon (2013)
BEd. in Information Technology, Univ. of Education, Winneba. (2009)

I am currently a doctoral researcher in Information Systems at the University of Ghana Business School (UGBS). Before now, I graduated with an MPhil degree in Management Information Systems
from UGBS in 2013, and a B.Ed Information Technology in 2009. Since 2010, I have been interested in two main domains. The first is the relationship between information systems and individuals,
organisations and the general society. The second is the teaching and learning of information systems. These interest domains have been the foundation of my research endeavours which have
resulted in several refereed journal articles, book chapters, and AIS-affiliated conference articles. I have also been involved in research projects funded by the UNDP and Microsoft. My current doctoral thesis which seeks to explain the impact of digital platforms on individuals and society is the beginning of a research programme on the digital economy of the global South.
