GHANAIAN UNIVERSITIES FAIL IN WORLD RANKING

By MG-David Y.B. Osei

Of the about 9,760 Accredited universities in the World.Ghana's prominent Universities including LEGON UNIVERSITY and KWAME NKRUMAH UNIVERISTY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY only managed to place 5,702 and 6,703 positions respectively in the World University Ranking.While they wabble to secure 43rd and 63rd positions in Africa University Rankings.

University of Cape Town ranked 1st in Africa and among the top 500 with 356th position in the World University Ranking.

Is this listing important? Does it reflect the caliber of Leaders been produced in Ghana? If so what is the cause and the solution to this shame that our Universities has incurred upon us.

Who is to be blamed, the Students? the Government? the Teachers ? or the Educational structure of our country?
