Prof Afrane shared that the main focus of their visit was to explore collaboration with WOU in developing their Business School. 

According to Prof Afrane, KNUST, a high-ranking university in West Africa established 60 years ago, is currently organised into six Colleges. It has a total of 27,000 students, of which the majority (22,000) of students study via the face-to-face mode, and the others via distance learning.

He stated that the College of Arts and Social Sciences receives the highest number of students, accounting for some 35% of total student enrolment. The Business School – established six years ago – is one of the five faculties under the College.

Meanwhile Prof Frimpong said that KNUST’s Business School currently offers BSc Business Administration – with options in specialisations like Human Resource Management, Accounting, Banking and Finance, International Business, Hospitality and Tourism Management, and Marketing – and an Executive MBA programme (since 2008).
