Ghanaians’ Study Tour Includes GWSB Stop

Representatives from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) Business School in Kumasi, Ghana, visited GWSB last week as part of their U.S. study tour of business institutions in the northeastern United States.

The group included 13 Ghanaian MBA and Executive MBA students; the Dean of the KNUST school, Joseph Magnus Frimpong; the university registrar and a representative from Education USA, a global network of more than 400 advising centers supported by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the U.S. Department of State.

KNUST representatives participated in Financial Management and Managerial Accounting classes with Global MBA students at GWSB, attended a lecture on “Business & Society” by Associate Dean for MBA Programs Liesl Riddle and joined faculty and students for a lunch discussion.

The visit grew out of a relationship that developed during the Global MBA Consulting Abroad Program (CAP) in Accra, Ghana, last May, when Riddle and Bryan Andriano, director of International Education and Programs, met with representatives of Ghanaian universities.

Joseph Magnus Frimpong, the dean of a Ghanaian business school, and others visited with Associate Dean for MBA Programs Liesl Riddle at GWSB.
