School of Business Achieves Another Milestone for UEW

Another academic milestone has been achieved by the School of Business, University of Education, Winneba (UEW) at the second edition of the Tertiary Business Sense Challenge organised by Graphic Business in partnership with the Ministry of Business Development and the Institute of Chartered Accountants, Ghana.  

The UEW School of Business placed fourth out of 19 participating institutions across the country. The Business School eliminated well known institutions such as University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA), Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) and African University College of Communications (AUCC) at various stages of the competition. The UEW team was beaten in the semi-finals by the eventual winners, University of Development Studies (UDS).

The contest was to test the business knowledge of tertiary students and how they could apply what they learn in school to real life experiences.

On Wednesday, 11th March, 2020, the team paid a courtesy call on the Vice-Chancellor, Rev. Fr. Prof. Anthony Afful-Broni to report on its performances at the competition.  

The Dean, School of Business, Dr. Braimah Awaisu Imurana leading the team to the Vice-Chancellor expressed the team’s heartfelt appreciation to Management for the immense support offered and enabled them to perform better than they did in the first edition of the competition. He assured the Vice-Chancellor of concrete measures to be put in place to ensure that UEW wins the third edition.
