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.
