The Council Chair of the Accra Business School is advocating for the integration of integrity and ethos in Ghana’s educational curriculum in a bid to strengthen the fight against the canker of corruption.
According to Prof. Kwame Omane-Antwi, many of Ghana’s problems including the galamsey menace can be traced to corrupt dealings of people in authority hence the call to entrench the training of moral uprightness and integrity especially in schools in the country.
Prof. Kwame Omane-Antwi was speaking at the 10th congregation of the School which saw 122 graduands, awarded with various Masters in Business Administration degrees.
This batch adds to some 1,031 alumni of the Accra Business School.
The journey to an MBA has not been as smooth for this batch due to the advent of the Covid-19 global pandemic. It presented the best opportunity for the graduands to put their training in change management among other modules to test even before leaving the confines of the university.
Aside from being trained to be of topmost quality in the industry, Council Chair of the Accra business school, Prof. Kwame Omane-Antwi said the graduands have been adequately prepared to be the moral standard-bearers in industry, noting that education without values may only make on evil in society.
The special guest of honour to the congregation, Rt. Hon. Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, speaking through a representative, Dr. Ibin Zachariah, charged the graduands to hold fast to the values and ethics contained in the various course modules.
The 10th valedictorian of the school and mother of three, Georgina Konadu Boateng called on Ghanaians to endeavour not to corrupt persons in authority.
In conforming to COVID-19 induced changes in global education, Vice President of the Accra Business School, Prof. Elvis Cornerstone said the school is introducing self-study methods to ensure access to quality MBAs from across the world.
