Master of Science in Corporate Planning
Objectives of the Programme
The main objective is to produce highly qualified professional corporate planners who would be capable of applying the knowledge and skills gained to further contribute to the training of corporate planners; and to meet the planning needs of governments, organisations, and businesses at the local, national and international levels.
Uniqueness and Justification of Programme
The programme is very unique because it covers both theoretical and practical workshop sessions where students will prepare Corporate Plans and make presentations. The programme is highly needed in Ghana, where economic crisis, structural adjustment, competition, technological innovation, public, private and non-governmental organisation (NGO) and civil society organisation (CSO) sector reforms require corporate organisations to change and develop on on-going and sustainable bases.
The instructors on the programme are very experienced and have strong theoretical and practical corporate Planning backgrounds, having taught and occupied key managerial positions for several years. The programme is the first of its kind in Ghana at the graduate level.
Applications are invited from holders of undergraduate degrees, not below Second Class Lower division (i.e., First Class, Second Class Upper and Second Class Lower) in the Social Sciences, Business and Public Administration, Agriculture, Building Technology, Architecture, and Planning from recognized universities with at with at least a minimum of two years working experience.
Matured applicants who are over 35 years and are in managerial and executive positions can also apply provided they have Third Class division or its equivalent in the respective degrees in areas mentioned.
Duration of programme
The MSc Corporate Planning is a fifteen (15-months) programme, comprising course work and dissertation writing. The programme is run on a three-semester basis.
The course work comprises core courses, elective courses, and a practical course involving field work and workshop presentation. A student is also expected to pass all first semester course work before being allowed to start writing the thesis.
The Corporate Planning Programme seeks to address corporate level planning and development through a holistic approach to resource mobilisation and management; with a view to improving organisational, human resource, financial, marketing, and technological needs of governments, institutions, organisations, and businesses.
The Programme therefore prepares students for employment within and outside the country at the local, district, regional, national and international levels upon completing their study including; Corporate institutions/organisations, Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), Community-based Organisations (CBOs); and Self-Employment.
