TAKORADI TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY
About: The Takoradi Technical University was established in September, 2016, as a result of the government’s policy to convert Takoradi Polytechnic, among five other Polytechnics, to the status of Technical University. In effect, since April 1954, Takoradi Technical University (formerly Takoradi Polytechnic) has existed as a Government Technical Institute under the Ghana Education Service of the Ministry of Education. During that period, the institute offered programmes mainly at the Craft and Technician Certificate levels in commercial and technical subjects, awarding Royal Society of Arts (RSA) and City and Guilds of London, United Kingdom. However, in 1990, the Ghana Education Service took over the awards of the above-mentioned certificates. As part of the Ghana Educational Reforms which began in the 1980s, the Takoradi Technical Institute and five other similar institutions were upgraded by the Polytechnic Act 321 (PNDC Law 1993) to become part of the Ghana Tertiary Education System. The Polytechnics, per the law, began to offer Higher National Diploma (HND) programmers in the 1993/1994 academic year. These reforms mandated the polytechnics to compliment the role of the Universities to increase access to tertiary education for the training of middle and higher-level manpower. A Bill proposed by the Ministry of Education and considered by Cabinet of Government in 2014 was passed by Parliament as an Act in August 2016 with the assent of the President, converting some polytechnics into technical universities as full-fledged technical universities. In view of that, the Takoradi Polytechnic Council adopted the name “Takoradi Technical University” which has been duly registered with the Registrar General’s Department of Ghana. Currently, Takoradi Technical University has three (3) campuses: Effia Kuma (Takoradi), Butumagyebu (Sekondi) and Akatakyi (Agona-Nkwanta). The Akatakyi Campus is the largest of the three, with an acreage of 152.3

BIMAKS COLLEGE OF BUSINESS AND HEALTH SCIENCES
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.

ALL NATIONS UNIVERSITY COLLEGE
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
