Will enhance research by varied interactive sessions

This research programme will initiate the student-faculty exchange, will organise study tours and will also conduct summer school programmes. Additionally, the universities will also be giving the presentations individually.
Well, the two countries come together to resurge themselves politically, economically and most importantly educationally. However, MAHE commits to continue and deepen its engagement with Ghana. Secondly, the partnership will be guided by Ghana’s priorities of building an educated, skilled and confident society, equipped with global competencies.
