Marysons College is a private tertiary institution registered in Ghana with the Registrar General’s Department in 2009 to offer degrees and diploma programs through Training and Research.
The college is located in the heart of the educational city of Ghana: Cape Coast, on the Starlets 91 Street in the former Agric Bank premises next door to IBB Centre for Computer Studies..
Currently, the college operates 2 Academic Faculties: Business Research Institute and IBB Centre for Computer Studies. The college is in collaboration with African Footprints and other International Universities to establish a third faculty in a few years namely: Institute of African Studies & Development. A brief introduction of all three faculties shall be given under the appropriate headings.
Our philosophy is in tune with that of Dr. James Kwegyir Aggrey of blessed memory, that the only way to play good music on a piano is by combining effectively both the black and white keys. We at Marysons believe in multi-racial inclusion and cultural diversity. We combine both international and local methodologies in training and research but we analyse each situation in its own local context. In future multi-lingual education shall form the bases of all our educational programs because we are convinced that it is the only way Africa can improve upon its regional integration and development.
At Marysons we train you to become a certified problem-solver, researcher and innovator not just an employee.
OUR AIM & OBJECTIVES
Our main aim and objectives as an Educational Institution is to be able to achieve the following:
To give our students academic excellence in their knowledge areas as well as to make them lifetime researcher in promoting teaching and learning.
To make our graduates employable by giving them the vocational skills and personal competences in their areas of specialisation. This we offer through the delivery of weekly seminars and industrial practice attachments, internships and projects abroad.
Above all, to make our graduates come out with proficiency in at least in two international languages as a ticket for international mobility, scholarship and or an extra opportunity for employment in a foreign environment. Through this we shall perform our quota to the integration and cooperation of the world at large and Africa in particular.
Finally we are here as a school to train and develop Graduate Entrepreneurs as the “Innovators of a New Africa”.
The role of the JTI is to promote effective judicial training for judges, magistrates and judicial staff. It is also strategically positioned to play a supporting role in the judicial reform effort in this contemporary era. Its vision is meant to galvanise it towards seeing itself in the next five years as organisation that can expand its horizon and realise its goals especially in the Sub-Saharan Africa.
Historically, like the case in common law jurisdictions, judges in Ghana received no additional training on appointment to the Bench from the Bar. The Judicial Service Act of 1960 (and Judicial Service Regulations) provided for the establishment of a training school for registrars and allowed for the training of other judicial staff. The Act provided legislative backing for judicial education in Ghana which began in 1965 when the Judicial Service Training School (JSTS) was established and given the mandate of providing training and education for the staff of the Judicial Service of Ghana (JSG). By then training for judges was limited to ad hoc seminars and mentoring by senior judges for junior and newly-appointed judges. Training was extended in the mid-1970s for magistrates, and in the late 1980s to cover continuing education for judges.
In 1995, the JSTS was transformed into the Institute of Continuing Judicial Education of Ghana (ICJEG) to reflect its new mandate of offering continual judicial education to judges and magistrates. In 2004, judicial education in Ghana underwent further transformation, marked by the renaming of the ICJEG as the Judicial Training Institute (JTI) and the appointment of a full-time Director. Since then the JTI has developed and delivered training programmes for new and current members of the Judicial Service with the broader objective of using education and training for developing the human resource needs of the Judicial Service of Ghana, for judicial reform and ensuring judicial efficiency in Ghana.
The JTI recognises the fact that individuals with prior experience and expertise at the Bar require additional training in order to make the transition to the Bench. In addition, the JTI acknowledges that social and technical norms in Ghana are constantly evolving, creating an ever-changing set of demands on the judiciary. Supplementary education and training programmes are needed to enable the judiciary to meet these demands and function efficiently and effectively in Ghanaian society.
The Institute of Public Relations, Ghana (IPR) is the sole professional body for Public Relations practitioners in Ghana. Amongst its roles, IPR exists to provide a professional structure for the practice of Public Relations and enhance the ability and status of its members as professional practitioners.
To run a respected institution training PR professionals and strengthening the professional capabilities of members to effectively take on the PR needs of corporate institutions, government and high profile individuals. We aim to make PR and communications the most fashionable, must have profession in Ghana by working towards rigid recruitment processes which will employ the right people in the right jobs.
In October 1997, Commonwealth Heads of State met in Edinburgh, Scotland and resolved to promote good corporate governance within the Commonwealth. The Commonwealth Secretariat was requested to implement the initiative of the Heads of State. In April 1998, the Commonwealth Secretariat held a workshop in London on corporate governance. Twenty four (24) nations were represented. The Commonwealth Association for Corporate Governance was formed as an umbrella body and the medium to achieve the initiative. In June 1998, the Commonwealth Secretariat, The Commonwealth Association for Corporate Governance and the State Enterprises Commission of Ghana organised a three-day workshop in Accra. At the end of the workshop participants unanimously agreed on the need for the formation of an Institute of Directors-Ghana. A Task Force was set up to prepare the grounds for its establishment. The Institute was registered on 21 st May, 1999 with an eleven member Council.
From its founding in 1948 as the Department of Extra-Mural Studies, the School of Continuing and Distance Education (SCDE) has been the centre of excellence in providing university-based adult education, continuing education, as well as distance education across the country. In a competitive market-driven, technological, global environment of the 21st Century, the University of Ghana has positioned itself in educating the youth, training new entrants into the work force, and continuously educating and re-training those already in the work force for the acquisition of new knowledge and appropriate skills. Using interdisciplinary, comparative, gender-sensitive, community-based, interactive learning perspectives, and technology, the SCDE’s highly motivated and committed faculty and staff apply their specializations in all fields of study to illuminate the relevance of higher education for empowering individuals, families, communities, and the nation for development and poverty reduction.
