The President of PUG emphasized that the introduction of the “The Project in Mind, Product in Hand Concept” will help the students enroll with a project in mind and graduate with a product in hand. This concept will support developmental research that focuses on providing timely and relevant solutions to the many problems facing the country.

In his speech, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Right Reverend Professor JOY Mante, and Chancellor of the University, called on the graduands to make a difference in society by exhibiting high moral standards and discipline.

For the most part, the introduction of the PhD programme in Development and Management by PUG is a welcome development that will enable the University to produce more experts in the field. The University is also expanding its programmes to meet the ever-changing demands of society.

It is important for students to pay critical attention to issues of integrity, selflessness, emotional intelligence, and hard work to be successful in all endeavors. The call on graduands to exhibit high moral standards and discipline is a reminder that education goes beyond the acquisition of knowledge to developing character and contributing positively to society.
