The Vice–Chancellor of the University for Development Studies, Professor Gabriel Ayum Teye, has advised tertiary institutions to develop effective management strategies in order to be more competitive.

The effective management of any system, he said, enhanced communication, propelled leadership skills and also encouraged institutions to adapt to current trends in their field of operation.


“Ghana will continue to attract foreign students and, for that matter, foreign earnings if we all come together to foster the effective management of our universities and university colleges,” he stated.


Prof. Teye made the call at the ninth congregation and 49th annual graduation ceremony of the Ghana Christian University College (GCUC) at Amrahia in Accra at the weekend.

Speaking on the theme: “Celebrating Excellence in Transformational Service,” Prof. Teye said tertiary institutions, as part of their transformation strives, must contribute towards the country’s economic development in diverse ways.


He commended the GCUC for being the forerunners in introducing other academic programmes in addition to traditional programmes in Theology.

“In a very short time, the GCUC has introduced a degree course such as Bachelor of Science in Nursing and diploma courses in programmes such as Oil and Gas Management and Journalism,” he said.
