The University College of Management Studies (UCOMS) has held its fifth matriculation and admitted 279 fresh students for the 2011-2012 academic year.
The students would be pursuing courses in Accounting, Banking and Finance, Human Resource Management, Marketing, Procurement and Supply Chain Management.
UCOMS runs a morning, evening and weekend programmes and admits students twice each academic year. The first admission is in September and the second in January/February.
At the ceremony, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of UCOMS, Dr Sazrar Opata said the university was one of the best in the country having trained a large number of distinguished personalities who could be found in various sectors of national development.
“No matter a person’s background, UCOMS is designed to give each individual the education and exposure to a world view regardless of a social background,” he said, adding that “our curriculum is designed to give each student a depth of study in their chosen field and to make them prepared for the job market”.
“We advise our students to take seriously the courses in French, Business Ethics, Logic or Critical Thinking, Psychology and Sociology
that help people to distinguish between propaganda and opinion and facts from fiction”.
The Rector of UCOMS, Dr Henry Fram Akplu, noted that UCOMS started as a career college dedicated to the preparation of people for the world of work.
UCOMS, he said, would continue to open its doors to all persons who desired to have higher education, adding that “we believe in lifelong
learning for the entire adult population, especially those who are already employed”.
Consequently, he said, the university had designed its programmes such that students could opt for morning, evening and weekend sessions.
Dr Akplu said UCOMS was lucky to have two affiliated mentors - the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) and the University of Education, Winneba (UEW).
The two institutions, he said, had been supportive and understanding.
He congratulated the students on their admission at the university, and charged them to attend lectures regularly and participate in class
“We are a family here at UCOMS. When you have any challenge or complaint feel free to consult the Dean of Students, the Dean of
Academic Affairs or myself. We want your experience here at UCOMS to be a rewarding and memorable one.
“We want you to feel that your investment in your education at UCOMS has been worthwhile,” he emphasised.
