About: The Central University was founded by the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) in Accra, Ghana. It started off as a pastoral training institute in 1988. It was then known as the Central Bible College by June 1991. It later became the Central Christian College in 1993 and eventually became the Central University College in 1997. Among the stated aims of the university is to provide an "integrated and biblically-based tertiary education with particular reference to the needs of the African continent". It is currently the biggest private university in Ghana
About: The physical facility for the College was initially started as a Students Hostel for the Swedru School of Business (SWESBUS) in 2003. The ground floor with a total capacity for 200 students was completed in 2006. The facility was Christened “Bempomaa Memorial Hostel” in memory of the late mother of the Founder of the College. The patronage of the facility was very low. Consequently financial returns were also very low. The facility was restructured with the construction of two additional floors to start programs in Nursing and Midwifery. Other Investment partners insisted that the name be changed since it seemed to favor one person. Consequently, the name was changed to GLOBAL COLLEGE OF HEALTH SCIENCE. It was also decided that other health science programs should be added including Physician (Medical) Assistants, Disaster Science, ICT, and Medical Laboratory Technology. Later the Investment Partners agreed for the addition of Business and Management programs to better serve the broader interest of the communities in the catchment areas. With the introduction of the Business Programs, the National Accreditation Board requested for a change of the College’s name to reflect the new programs. After much difficulty, BIMAKS College of Business and Health Sciences was selected from among the many suggested names submitted to the Board. The Board finally approved the name on 4th February 2013. BIMAKS is an acronym derived from the letters of the names of Investment Partners. From this an inspiring philosophy has been coined. B – Believe, I— In, M—Mastering, A— (your) Abilities, K— (through) Knowledge, S— (and) Service.
