Lancaster University Ghana has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) to develop the accounting and finance profession in Ghana.
As part of the MOU, the two educational bodies will be collaborating in the areas of professional accountancy training, education, examinations and continuing professional development.
It will also offer opportunities for members of ACCA and Lancaster University Ghana to share ideas in areas of common interest through conferences, seminars, training programmes and workshops.
At a brief ceremony in Accra, both ACCA and Lancaster University Ghana expressed their confidence in the partnership.
Provost, Lancaster University Ghana, Professor John Grainger said the partnership with ACCA will help “strengthen our support of the accounting profession both in Ghana and West Africa.”
He noted that “students will join research and knowledge exchange not just in the country but regionally and globally”.
On his part, Head of ACCA Ghana, Norman Williams stated that the MOU sets the stage for similar collaborations with the partners in the sub-region, which will bring value to the development of human capital and socio-economic development.
“Today accountants have a major role to play in businesses both locally and internationally and therefore they have to equip themselves with the latest knowledge in their respective fields of expertise” he added. Story by Ghana/Myjoyonline.com/ Adwoa Gyasiwaa
