PRESBYTERIAN UNIVERSITY COLLEGE
PRESBYTERIAN UNIVERSITY COLLEGE
About: According to the church history, in 1843, the Presbyterian Church of Ghana established the first primary school in the country. This sparked off a series of bold, visionary and pioneering initiatives in the development of education in the country. Five years later, it established the Presbyterian Training College (PTC) at Akropong, the second higher educational institution in West Africa after Fourah Bay College in Sierra Leone. Since those early beginnings, the Presbyterian Church of Ghana has established and managed, in partnership with the Government of Ghana , hundreds of primary schools, many high schools and colleges of education. These schools and colleges, guided by the proverbial Presbyterian discipline, set very high moral as well as educational standards, which have characterized the Presbyterian Education tradition. Also in partnership with government, the church has provided and managed Professional, Technical and Vocational Institutions in a wide range of fields including Agriculture and Health. Specifically, the church has established 1,886 schools comprising 490 Nurseries, 973 Primary Schools, 388 Junior High Schools, five (5) Vocational Institutes, five (5) Colleges of Education and 25 Senior High Schools. With the establishment of the Presbyterian Training College (PTC), it was hoped that, like the Fourah Bay College in Sierra Leone, it might one day be upgraded to a university. However, after several years, it was not until 1996 that the Synod of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana at that time took the bold decision to initiate steps into establishing a university. The body charged with pushing forward this initiative, the Presbyterian University Implementation Committee, was formally established in 1998. It is through these efforts and the determination of the Church that the Presbyterian University College, Ghana has come into being.

CHRISTIAN SERVICE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE
CHRISTIAN SERVICE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE
About: he college began as a merger of two visions in January 1974. A group of Ghanaian Christians had a vision of an interdenominational, evangelical institution of a high academic standard, which would train men and women for all types of Christian Ministry. The second group comprised expatriate missionaries who had a vision of an institution to train workers from the well-established church in southern Ghana for a thrust into northern Ghana and neighboring countries where the church was small. Evangelical Christianity in Ghana in the late 1960s and 1970s was characterized, among other things, by intimate interaction and collaboration and blurring of denominational, mission and group distinctions. The Worldwide Evangelization for Christ (WEC), which was one of the missionary groups in the second group of missionaries, had acquired property in Kumasi on which they had built four dwelling houses and a radio studio with plans to construct a large building to serve as the beginning of a training college. Soon the two visions merged. In October 1974, the first residential classes started with four students and the college went from strength to strength and has now become an evangelical Christian university college.

HERITAGE CHRISTIAN COLLEGE
HERITAGE CHRISTIAN COLLEGE
About: Heritage Christian College (HCC) is a higher educational institution sponsored by the Churches of Christ. It has its roots in the establishment of the National Bible Institute (NBI), a two-year preacher training school established in January 1982 by the Nsawam Road Church of Christ, Ghana, to train gospel ministers. Daniel Ampadu-Asiamah served as the pioneer Director of NBI until December 1984 when he moved to Togo as a missionary. Following that, Dan L. McVey, then resident American missionary served as NBI Director until June 1999 when Samuel Twumasi-Ankrah was appointed as Principal of NBI. In 2001, Twumasi- Ankrah’s proposal to transform NBI into an accredited liberal arts college received an enthusiastic support by the oversight elders of the Nsawam Road Church, and based on their wise counsel, the then National Bible Institute was integrated into the Heritage Christian College system in December 2001. Thus began the long process of developing HCC to become an accredited Christian university college affiliated with the Churches of Christ. Through the generosity of several individuals and congregations in Ghana and the United States, HCC was able to purchase a piece of land at Afiaman, Accra, and develop key infrastructure as well as distinctive academic programmes which were required for the grant of accreditation by the government of Ghana. In February 2012, HCC received affiliation status from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology (KNUST), Kumasi; a mentorship status which by law is required in order that KNUST shall award certification to HCC graduates till HCC eventually becomes an academic institution chartered by the President of Ghana. Finally, in March 2015, the National Accreditation Board of Ghana granted HCC both institutional and programme accreditation certificates. A particular mention ought to be made of the inestimable contributions made by certain groups of people as a result of which HCC has obtained its reputable accreditation status: Douglas & Margaret Boateng who paid for the cost of the land that serves as HCC campus; George Chisholm and the Traverse City Church of Christ, Michigan, whose initiative and sacrifices made it possible to raise the funds needed for the construction of the initial HCC buildings; Deon & Susan Fair who along with others set up the HCC Foundation and continue to provide financial, technical and academic support; Shane & Melissa McClung whose continued support remains pivotal ; and the Nsawam Road Church of Christ, Accra, Ghana whose support and oversight role is the bedrock of HCC

ADVANCED BUSINESS COLLEGE
ADVANCED BUSINESS COLLEGE
About: The present Advanced Business College (ABC) was formally launched in September 2005 as a Ghana educational institution to admit students to courses leading to certificates, diplomas and degrees. However, ABC was given birth to by an earlier Information Technology (IT) educational institution from which it derives its spiritual strength and inspirational impetus. Both the mother institution, Soft warehouse International Limited, and the present ABC were founded by the same person, Mr Ebenezer K. Ampiah, an entrepreneur and a leading Computer Analyst. The objective of the Soft warehouse International Limited was two-fold; namely, software development and manpower training. Mr Ampiah’s long-term vision was to produce highly qualified middle-level manpower for business and industry in Ghana and the African region as a whole. After running this institution for a while, he realised that although it was adequate for present needs, his objectives were too narrow to help him achieve the more comprehensive educational goals that would benefit his country and its neighbours. His intuition told him that his new, somewhat limited, creation could open up whole new vistas if he moved one step further to widen the scope of the objectives of Soft warehouse International Limited by evolving a connecting superstructure for human resource development. The hallmark of this would be relevance. Relevant human-resource development, in his conception, meant the creation of potentially unlimited but accessible opportunities for training in human development for sectors of the economy. Such a programme required that ICT and other disciplines should be brought together to create a unified educational programme whose output of trained professionals and business students would be relevant to economic development. After a period of careful planning and feasibility studies whose results assured him of the viability of his proposed course, he took the vital step of registering the Advanced Business College as a tertiary educational institution under the Companies Code 1963, Act 179 as a body corporate limited by shares with perpetual succession and a common seal. At this point in the evolution of the institution educational consultants and other planners were requested to prepare the necessary documents for the launch of teaching programmes. After a number of checks and trials, ABC was registered by the Ghana Education Service to run the Advanced Business Certificate Examination (ABCE) in 2006 with registration number GES/GAR/PT/BS/01B/2006. Having run the ABCE programme for a test period, an application was made to the National Accreditation Board (NAB) to start a Bachelor’s degree programme. Applications were made to some universities in the country to be affiliated with. In the end it was decided to affiliate with the University of Education, Winneba (UEW). There were a number of reasons for choosing UEW as ABC’s mentor, but the main reason given by the founding fathers was that the mission of the new college – which is manpower training and development – would be best served by initial association with a university whose objective was the training of teachers and educationists for development. Another reason was that UEW ran all the programmes which the new College planned to teach. The College’s application to NAB was granted in January 2007 with registration number NAB/IAc/000086. It was granted programme accreditation in September 2008. The ABC signed an affiliation instrument with the University of Education, Winneba, in 2008. In addition to the University of Education, Winneba, the College is currently in affiliation with the National Board for Professional and Technician Examination (NABPTEX). Since its inception, the College has earned recognition over the years as a result of its association with a number of internationally recognised institutions. These include the London Centre of Marketing (LCM), the Institute of Commercial Management (ICM), the Association of Business Managers and Administrators (ABMA), the Institute of Professional and Executive Development (IPED), and ACCA. These granted ABC affiliation to run professional courses for their various qualification categories. The College, thus, currently serves as a learning centre for students pursuing programmes with these international bodies. It also collaborates with E-partners in practical business training programmes which prepare ABC graduates for the job market. The College is also in a process of starting, in the immediate future, a joint programme with Texila American University which will train students in nursing and the medical sciences.
