The Nduom School of Business and Technology (NSBT) on Saturday, 27th April 2019 inducted into office its new Rector, Rev. Prof. Daniel Adjepong Nyarko. He took over from Prof. James Hawkins Ephraim, the first rector of the School. The event also saw the matriculation of 20 students made up of 13 males and 7 females. They were admitted into the three degree programmes of the School which are BSc. Banking and Finance, BSc. Information and Communication Technology, and BSc. Information Technology Management for Business.
The event was attended by the Board Chairman of the School, Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom and other dignitaries including the managers of the various Groupe Nduom Companies. In his address, the Board Chairman challenged the students to go beyond excellence in whatever they do. Dr. Nduom encouraged them to be engrossed in their studies in order to harness their potential for the best outcomes. “We have made it possible for all of you to have accommodation on campus. It is for a very good purpose. We want you to get focused in the reason why you are here,” he posited.
The Rector of the School, Reverend Professor Daniel Adjepong Nyarko, in his address, made known to the public that in addition to the degree programmes run by the School, the National Accreditation Board has given approval to offer four Diploma programmes leading to degrees. The programmes are Diploma in Management, Diploma in Accounting, Diploma in Information Technology and Diploma in Banking and Finance.
Rev. Prof. Nyarko further indicated that in order to reach out to the teeming youth, who are yearning for quality higher education, the institution is vigorously working on curricula for new, demand-driven programmes for consideration by the National Accreditation Board. Such planned programmes, he said, include, Marketing, Procurement, Cyber Security and Medical Engineering. In addition, the Rector stated that the institution is collaborating with the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) for approval to run two of its flagship programmes, namely, the International Professional Certificate in Logistics & Transport and International Professional Diploma in Logistics & Transport.
Prof. Nyarko noted that these programmes are aimed at equipping participants with requisite knowledge and skills to manage transport and logistics operations. He, therefore, appealed to the youth, particularly, those within the Cape Coast Metropolis and KEEA Municipality as well as its environs to take advantage and enroll on the programmes. He assured prospective applicants that such programmes have ready job markets for successful graduates.
The Rector, in his concluding remarks, urged the students to make better use of the opportunity given to them in order to add value unto themselves. He thanked the Chairman of Groupe Nduom for his magnanimity in granting GHS80,000 for the pioneer students to start their own businesses and also for donating a brand new 17-seater minibus to NSBT to help in their activities.
