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.

DR. OTENG GYASI KWAME
Lecturer

My name is Oteng Gyasi Kwame and I hail from Ejura in the Ashanti region. I completed Prempeh College in 2006 and received my B.Sc. degree in Telecommunication Engineering at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi, Ghana in 2011. I received my M.Sc. and PhD degrees in Communication and Information Engineering from the University of Electronic Science and Technology, Chengdu, China, in 2014 and 2018 respectively. I worked as a teaching assistant at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology from August 2011- July 2012. I also worked at Christian Service University College as a lecturer in the department of computer science and IT from 2018-2019. My hobbies are playing and watching football, playing FIFA, reading academic papers and watching movies. My research interests include modern telecommunication, electromagnetic field theory, wireless communications, circularly polarized antennas, printed wideband antennas, planar monopole antennas and slot antennas. I hope to build long-lasting friendships with everyone here at GIMPA and be a model lecturer by conducting lots of helpful researches in addition to teaching at the SOT.

MR. EMMANUEL AYITEY DJABA
Assistant Lecturer

Emmanuel Ayitey Djaba, proud alumni of the Ghana Institute of Management & Public Administration (GIMPA) has been involved in using and teaching about technology since the early days of his undergraduate degree at Ghana Technology University College (GTUC). There he served as a Google student ambassador and held various training sessions on Google products and services. After his first degree, he worked with The Softtribe – a software development company. There, he served as the lead developer of various software applications for clients such as MMC Property Management Ltd and Star Ghana. Subsequently, he proceeded to work in digital marketing at Viva Global where he developed bespoke digital applications to enhance the marketing campaigns of brands like Samsung Ghana.
During his time at Viva Global, he enrolled at the School of Technology (SOT) for an MSc and
(later), an MPhil in I.C.T. If the name sounds familiar, it is probably because you have encountered him working or teaching at the School of Technology (SOT) during his just-ended sponsorship bond.
In his short stay at GIMPA, he has been able to contribute to the Women in I.T & Engineering (WITE) initiative of SOT by fostering a relationship between WITE and other technology advocacy groups such as Women Tech Makers and Facebook Developer Circles. Through these relationships, WITE successfully organized and held the International Women’s Day celebration where various female students in secondary and tertiary educational institutions were mentored by experienced women in technology.
When he is not teaching, engaging in research or performing other duties as assigned to him by the institute, Emmanuel spends his free time taking pictures and writing poetry.    edjaba@gimpa.edu.gh
