Zenith_University_CollegeThe Zenith University College would soon offer a two-year General Diploma programme in Business Administration and a joint Bachelor of Law Degree Programme with the University of Cape Coast.

Mr Stephen Takyi-Aseidu, the Rector of the University College, who announced this, said the institution was working towards introducing Nursing, Computer Science, International Relations and Development, Web Design, Web Production and Web Development, soon.

He was addressing the first Graduation ceremony to be held this year, in Accra.

On the existing Academic Programmes, Mr Takyi-Aseidu said the University College was in the process of undertaking a comprehensive review of the structures and content of its Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes.

“To be relevant as a tertiary educational institution, we believe there is the need for periodic review of our curricula with the object of redesigning, reshaping, revamping and modernizing our programmes so that our students will be competitive in the global work place,” he said.

Mr Takyi-Asiedu challenged graduands to be good ambassadors of the school wherever they find themselves and said the least they could do for their alma mater was to keep the Zenith University College’s flag flying by behaving responsibly and making the most use of their opportunity.

“In any organisation, there are three categories of people: the few who make things happen, the many who watch things happen and the overwhelming majority who have no idea what happens.

“I expect you to belong to the first category, that is the few who make things happen,” Mr Takyi-Aseidu said.

He also urged the graduands to seek excellence wherever they would find themselves either in the lecture room again or in the world of work.

A total of 268 students graduated, out of which 21 candidates made up of 13 males and eight females were awarded Master of Business Administration degrees.

Professor Josephus Anamuah-Mensah, the Chairman of the Council of Zenith University College, said lifelong learning was a cardinal orientation in education, and urged the graduands to continue to learn to improve their knowledge and skills.

“It is said that information doubles every 5.5 years, technical information doubles every two years, while electronic information doubles every hour. Being a lifelong and digital learner will enable you to keep up to date with issues in your profession,” he said.

Prof Anamuah-Mensah expressed happiness about the success chalked by the School over the years, but mentioned flooding at some parts of the La Community as a major challenge and concern to the College.

Therefore, he said, a professional engineering solution had been sought to resolve the perennial problem.
