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.

About: All Nations University College (ANUC) was established by the All Nations Full Gospel Church (ANFGC), Toronto, Canada through the All Nations International Development Agency (ANIDA). The Progenitor of the vision, Dr. Samuel Donkor challenged the African diaspora in North America to support the development of Africa by investing in Human Resource Development through quality higher education. The mission was to develop a new breed of leaders for the continent with holistic education that emphasizes academic excellence, Christian values, discipline and ethical values in a Christ centered environment. The government of Ghana readily embraced the idea in 1988, when Dr. Donkor sought permission for the All Nations University. But it was not until 1996 when the master plan was presented to the National Accreditation Board (NAB). Upon the advice of NAB, the University was incorporated in April 1996 and subsequently received the authority to establish the All Nations University in May 1996. After years of preparations, the University opened its doors to 37 pioneering students on November 4, 2002 for the Business and Computer Science undergraduate programs. Today ANUC has 12 accredited programs and over 2500 students

About: JAYEE is the acronym of ‘JOHN EMMANUEL’, the initials of the names of the founder and President, Mr J E Donkoh, of the JAYEE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE. The University College started modestly as a secretarial school with eight (8) students at YMCA, Adabraka – Accra in 1988. With time, the students’ number grew, and it became necessary for a more spacious campus. Jayee consequently, relocated to the Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra. The name was changed from Jayee Secretarial School to Jayee Professional Training Institute. The programmes that were run included English and French Languages (beginner, intermediate and proficiency), Computer programmes, Computer Integrated Secretaryship and Bi-lingual Secretaryship. The desire to expand and include marketable and more preferred programmes led to the acquisition of its present campus at Royal Palm Avenue, McCarthy Hill on the Mallam – Kasoa highway in 1999. Jayee got affiliated to the University of Education, Winneba in 2004 and re-named as Jayee Institute. The Institute was accredited by the National Accreditation Board to run a 3-year Advanced Diploma in Journalism (with options in Sports Reporting, Political Reporting, Environmental Reporting, and Economic Reporting) and Business Administration (with options in Accounting, Secretaryship and Management, Public Relations and Marketing). There is a 2-year Non-Tertiary Diploma in Office Management and Secretaryship. Since then Jayee’s academic affairs have been monitored by her mentor, the University of Education, Winneba. In 2008, the National Accreditation Board re-accredited Jayee to run 4-year degree programmes.
