Regent University Maastricht Graduation 2014

The Vice President of Institutional Advancement, Dr. Stanley Moffatt, and the Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS), Dr. Franklin Glozah, on Thursday, September 4th 2014, represented Regent University College to participate in the just ended Graduation Ceremony of the Maastricht School of Management (MSM).

A large number of ambassadors and dignitaries from across the world were in attendance to congratulate students from their countries. Among the dignitaries included Ghana’s Ambassador to The Netherlands, Dr. Tony Aidoo.  Students were awarded with Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) certificates. Maastricht DBA is ranked 2nd in the world.

Two former students, Mr. Joseph Sedina Quist and Mrs Harriet Tenge, who graduated from the Regent-Maastricht MBA programme were also present for the graduation. They were presented with MBA certificates in Corporate Strategy and Economic Policy. In all, thirteen (13) students graduated from the programme at Regent-Ghana during its 7th graduation ceremony held at the Accra International Conference Center April this year.

The Regent-Maastricht MBA programme was one of the flagship postgraduate programmes at Regent University College that was highly rated in Ghana. Over 80 students have graduated from the programme at Regent-Ghana since its inception in 2009.

Currently, talks are underway with Maastricht School of Management to acquire the exclusive right of running the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) programme at Regent University College.

RAPS donation

On the 23rd of May 2014, the Regent Association of Psychology Students (RAPS) together with some students from the theology department made some donations to the Autism Awareness Care and Training (AACT) Centre and the Accra Psychiatric Hospital. This kind gesture was extended to these two health centres because the Association appreciated the effort being put in by the management of these centres and decided to show some support. Again, the exercise was in fulfillment of a green book requirement which stipulates that students of the University should engage in community services so as to contribute their quota to national development.

They first visited the Autism centre where they donated items such as exercise books, story books, colour pencils and other learning and writing materials. The managing director of the centre, Mrs. Serwah Quaynor expressed her deepest gratitude for the kind gesture. She however lamented that, most people were ignorant about Autism and its attendant challenges and therefore urged the students to create more awareness about autism so that the general public will be well informed and appreciative of autistic children. That was the only way society will learn to accept children with autism and show them the necessary love and care, she maintained. She also stressed that as a mother of an autistic child she was aware of the challenges parents faced in taking care of such children and called for more support for the Autism centers in Ghana.

Their next destination was the Accra psychiatric hospital. The students donated several items which included toiletries, fruits, board games and cleaning equipment. The items which were presented to some senior staff at the hospital were received with so much joy and appreciation. They were particularly excited about the fact that we included diapers since some psychiatric patients had babies. This, they believed was testament to the fact that we were aware of the pressing issues facing the hospital. They however called for more pragmatic measures by government in addressing the mental health issues in Ghana. After the presentation the students were given the opportunity to meet some patients .This was indeed a life changing moment for some of the students.

The president of RAPS, Mrs Awoenam Aidam-Gabla was hopeful that RAPS will continue to put smiles on the faces of people. She maintained that even though the items presented may not satisfy every need, it will go a long way to help provide some relief, joy and satisfaction to persons with psychological problems. Finally she stressed on the need for students to engage in activities which will transform lives and in effect bring about development and positive change in our societies.

Sod Cutting Ceremony

On April 2, 2014, Regent University College of Science and Technology, was led by its Founder & President, Prof. E.K Larbi and the Senior Vice President, Mr. Albert Amonoo to cut sod for the commencement of construction of its ultra-modern purpose built campus project at McCarthy Hill, Accra. This exercise marks a new chapter in the university’s history as it commits to becoming a leading, cutting-edge university in Africa, producing purpose driven human resource with science and technology expertise to function as change agents in our competitive global environment.

Amid shouts of joy, praises, and appreciation to God for how far the good Lord has brought the University, Prof. E.K. Larbi, led the gathering to read Deuteronomy 8: 1-19; 28:1-14. Inspired by these texts, he reminded the gathering of the numerous promises of God concerning the university, with particular emphasis on the hope that God is taking the university to a place of great prominence.  

Professor Larbi said that with “increased commitment and dedication we can expect and experience prosperity in abundance.” He was in high spirits as he encouraged a cross section of students, faculty members and staff with tales of the audacious beginnings of the university when they faced a plethora of adversity but still triumphed.  He said “we faced all sorts of challenges like law suits and family feuds but in all that we overcame the challenges.”


Among the special guest and dignitaries in attendance was Apostle Michael Aseidu, Witness Director of the Church of Pentecost, and a Member of the Council of the University. He prayed and committed this project and the university into the hands of God. Also in attendance was the Municipal Chief Executive Officer of Weija Municipal Assembly, Honorable Jerry A. Thompson. He was accompanied by other friends from the Municipality to witness the ceremony.

The Lead Engineer for the project, Eng. George Kwabena Asiedu assured the university of his team’s capacity to deliver high standard buildings and on schedule. He assured that they have assembled the best in the industry to lead the project and that the project upon completion can withstand any storm or earthquake.

A Chinese construction firm, Happy Check Company Ltd, has been contracted to build the structures. On his part, Mr. Hao Ye, Managing Director for the company said, “I am very grateful to God that we can be involved in this project. We will work hard and do quality work and finish on time”

The first phase of the project is expected to be completed by December, 2014 to facilitate the movement of the University to a central location. It is the hope of the university that once this project is completed more courses will be introduced with resulting increases in overall student enrolment.
