Mr Carlos Ahenkorah, Member of Parliament, Tema West, commended GIMPA for upholding the standards of excellence in the pursuit of higher education.

Professor Charles Amoatey, Director of GIMPA Training and Consulting, said since the introduction of the programme in 2004, 4,000 students had graduated, making a meaningful impact in society.

He said the graduates were taken through artificial intelligence, digitization, machine learning, and entrepreneurship, among others, to be abreast of new developments and ensure efficiency in the sector.

Mr Felix Osei Tutu, on behalf of the graduates, commended the faculty and all who supported them to reach the pinnacle of success.

He appealed to the leadership of CILT to expand the programme across the country, pledging to contribute their knowledge to the development of the sector.
