The president of the Garden City University College wants private universities in Ghana to find their competitive advantage to stay recognized.
Prof. Anthony Apeke Adimado observes the tertiary education space shares similar programmes thereby giving especially public counterparts more advantage.
He was speaking at the GCUC’s 17th matriculation at Kenyase.
The University College admitted 1,450 students across its various disciplines and learning centers.
Prof. Adimado observed a plethora of business programmes running in the various tertiary institutions nationwide. He believes GCUC’s focus on health has been crucial in increasing enrollment.
He therefore urged private tertiary institutions to be innovative to stay in business.
“For the private university landscape every university is pursuing various aspects of business education.
We’ve seen that very few of them are engaged in health-related disciplines and that’s what GCUC is cashing in on. We’re in a competition and it’s a matter of looking for innovative ways to keep our inflows,” he said.
“Having 1,450 matriculants in August admission is very encouraging,” he added.
Prof. Adimado advised the students against engaging in examination malpractices and unhealthy political activism.
He stressed that the university college is working hard to achieve a presidential charter.
“The mandate I have informed council and management is to see how to push from university college status to a university status with a presidential charter. If you have a charter, then you have the room to do more innovative things,” he said.
