THE PENTECOST University College has started a new programme that gives aspiring students the opportunity to access education at the postgraduate level.
Pentvars Graduate School is projected to be the best Business School in Ghana offering courses like Master of Commerce with options in Taxation, Applied Accounting and Microfinance as well as Master of Business Administration with options in Entrepreneurship, Human Resource Management, Project Management, Marketing and Logistics and Supply Chain Management.
At a short programme to open the city campus which is located in the Kama Building at Labone, the Chancellor of Pentecost University College, Apostle Opuku Onyina, in a speech read on his behalf, said the school is part of the Pentecost University College’s 10-year strategic plan.
‘The various inter-institutional collaborations established between Pentecost University College and other sister universities such as the Institutional Mentorship agreement with the Saginaw Valley State University- Michigan, U.S.A, and the various M.O.Us with Buckinghamshire University, the Oral Roberts University and the Galilee Institute of Management are very commendable,’ said the Apostle who noted that an MBA programme in Finance and Master of Arts in Theology would come on board soon.
The leadership of the Pentecost University College Graduate School was optimistic that the several innovations put in place, would help the students who enrolled in the school of higher learning to have a smooth sail in their academic journey.
The chancellor noted that a Practitioners Forum, which is part of the curriculum for the Graduate School, has been developed to give students a hands-on encounter with key personalities in commerce.
‘This will present our students with the opportunity to quiz various players in today’s world of business on the modern trends in solving the various challenges that confront us,’ he said and noted that a pool of professors and academicians has also been put together, known as the ‘Pentecost University Professional Advisory Committee’ to assist students in their various areas of research.
Also, he mentioned that a ‘Thesis Guideline’ which is geared towards helping and guiding students in writing their various dissertations has been put in place to help in the areas of research and publication.
Rev. Dr. Peter Ohene Kyei, rector of Pentvars Graduate School, gave assurance that the school is committed to empowering students to be transformational servant leaders who would go out into the world to make a difference through service.
‘We want our products to be empowered to ask the right, new and varied questions to redress the forces of mediocrity, corruption and bad leadership that have bedevilled Africa and seek practical solution to the problems themselves and not being part of the problem but the solution,’ he said.
Since the students would be taught by the best scholars and practitioners from both abroad and locally, he said ‘they must and will meet the highest level of academic rigour.’
