The School of Research and Graduate Studies is the newest school at GIMPA. It 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. A 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 also as a leader in Ghana’s graduate education in management, public administration, law, information, 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.
