Reuters has reported that the Ghanaian economy expanded by 4.8% in the second quarter of 2022, spurned by growth in the fishing, manufacturing, and education services sectors, making it one of the top destinations for people searching for work in West Africa.
Jobs abound in Ghana, but sadly many of them are not being filled because many of the growing youth population are still struggling to gain access to internationally recognized universities and earn degrees that will allow them to land high paying jobs in global companies.
Although there has been an increase in the number of higher education facilities in the country, the obstacle remains the cost of education.
The average Ghanaian cannot afford to pay the annual cost for their annual university tuition up front for the year, and far less can afford to travel overseas to earn an American degree. This is something that global companies value when looking at potential job candidates, as well as obviously the real-world skill sets necessary to do the job at hand.
An international American university degree is now within reach of Ghanaians
- An American MBA 100% online in Ghana for $180/month (average total cost $3,240).
- Leaner-centric, mission driven, 100% online, offering a next-generation learning experience.
- Build a network of global professionals from 95+ countries working at firms like Google, Deloitte, and Microsoft
Ghanaian learners at Nexford University, such as Richard Yeboah, are finding that they can earn an internationally recognized degree from an American university without having to leave their country or jobs and, not have to pay a fortune to get their BBA or MBA.
With an ever-growing presence in Ghana, Nexford University is an inclusive university licensed by HELC in Washington DC with international accreditation from ASIC whose mission is to enable greater social and economic mobility across the world by providing learners access to high-quality, affordable, dynamic online education that prepares them for the global workplace.
Nexford’s competency-based curriculum prioritizes skills over theory, so more of its graduates are coming onto the radar of global companies such as Microsoft, Facebook, and for Richard Yeboah, DHL.
Of his Nexford MBA education to date, Richard Yeboah says, ““I was with the export department at DHL when I started learning with Nexford. At the time I spotted a position for the branch manager in Kumasi which I applied for. Of course, I included on my CV that I was doing and MBA with this progressive online university. I have no doubt that putting Nexford on my CV made me a standout candidate to get the initial meeting, and then with my newfound skills and confidence procured from the university, land the job.”
But it’s not just that a degree from Nexford is highly affordable that is making it a very attractive proposition to Ghanaians like Richard Yeboah, it is also that unlike traditional universities, the university offers flexible learning so learners can learn from anywhere in the world and not have to quit their jobs.
Plus, Ghanaian learners are also loving that although they are learning 100% online, they are never alone as they enjoy 24/7 support from a team of Success Advisors and faculty.
