We are here to ensure that you get the best of education”.

He further urged the students to respect each other as they all will have to work hand in hand during their online studies. The Dean concluded by stating that the students should count themselves lucky for making it into UGBS and should be proud of that.

Mrs Selina Saaka, the Assistant Registrar at UGBS, presented on the Academic House Keeping Issues of the School. She gave a brief history of the University of Ghana and indicated that the University’s mandate is to provide education and facilitate research for all people. She revealed that the University is currently made up of four colleges, which includes the College of Humanities, and UGBS is one of the schools domiciled in the College of Humanities. She further took the students through the academic activities of the Business School and advised them to adhere to the rules and regulations stipulated in the student’s handbook. She further instructed students to try and adapt to the teaching platforms that the university will be using for teaching, such as Sakai, Zoom, YouTube, among others.
