A statement issued in Accra by Benjamin Larbi, the Acting Head of Communications of Regent University, and copied to the Ghana News Agency, said the finalists were select from 41 universities by a jury.
The Regent Team was the only group from an African university at the competition.
It said the top six finalists included university teams from London School of Economics, Cambridge University, University of Warwick, University College of London, all from the United Kingdom, Regent University College of Science and Technology, Ghana, and the University of Monterrey, Mexico.
It said the finalists would have the opportunity to participate in the Hult Business Accelerator Programme in Ashridge Castle, UK, later in the year.
