The Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Prof. K.T. Oduro, has received a delegation from the Copenhagen Business Academy in Denmark.
The delegation is in the University to foster collaboration between the Copenhagen Business Academy and the Department of Environmental and Laboratory Technology.
The Director of the Centre for International Studies, Prof. Rosemond Boohen, who spoke on behalf of the delegation, said the Copenhagen Business Academy started collaboration with the University through the School of Business in 2013. She said the Academy later collaborated with the Department of Tourism and Hospitality to enhance further collaboration in the areas of tourism and hospitality.
Prof. Boohen briefed the Pro-Vice- Chancellor on the collaboration between the Academy and the Departments of Environmental Science, and Laboratory Technology. She announced that the Departments of Business and Tourism and Hospitality had won the Erasmus Mundus staff and Mobility award through the collaboration.
For his part, Prof. K.T Oduro, after welcoming the delegation, conveyed to the delegation the greetings of the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Joseph Ghartey Ampiah, who was on an official assignment. He said the University was open to international collaboration.
Prof. Oduro indicated that the University was of the belief that “knowledge is like the proverbial baobab tree which no single individual can embrace”, hence there was the need for complementarity so far as knowledge, including science, was concerned.
He lauded the Centre for Education for creating linkages between the University and other international organisations.
