IE and the University of Ghana Sign Memorandum of Understanding


The memorandum of understanding (MOU) has been signed with the University of Ghana in Rhode Island.

IE University has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the University of Ghana. The agreement is designed to foster research collaborations, the development of faculty and student exchange programs.

The signing occurred during IE’s 10th annual Reinventing Higher Education Conference, held this year at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, between Ebenezer Oduro Owusu, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ghana, Robert Ebo Hinson, Acting Dean at University of Ghana Business School, and Santiago Iñiguez, President of IE University.

IE University has been present on the African continent for more than ten years and this agreement with the University of Ghana is among the latest initiatives from the new IE Africa Center. The Center, which operates under the auspices of the IE Foundation, seeks to change how executives around the world understand African business and history.

“We are thrilled to formalize and deepen our collaboration with the University of Ghana, one of the oldest and largest of Ghana’s public universities. It is a partnership that will strengthen our efforts to showcase African innovation as well as integrate more philosophical and economic understanding of the continent in all academic programs taught at IE,” said Felicia Appenteng, Chair of the IE Africa Center.
