Radford University College will soon introduce a Bachelor of Laws programme (LLB) into its academic curriculum.
Executive Chairman of the school, Nana Dwomoh Sarpong, announced this at its 5th congregation and 9th matriculation ceremonies in Accra.
He indicated that management of Radford has sought approval from the Board of Trustees and work is progressing steadily for the Law programme in collaboration with its mentor institution, the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
Nana Dwomoh Sarpong indicated they are committed to introduce curricula which will reflect the present-day knowledge needed to transform the country and Africa at large.
He said Radford has introduced a ‘Catch the Youth’ initiative as part of the school’s strategy to catch students young and develop their entrepreneurial abilities.
The Radford Executive Chairman noted that the College has decided to set aside some seed-money for students with bankable projects, to ensure they bring their dreams to life.
“As a university college, we will invite banks to identify and support students and help them shape their concepts into full-blown business plans,” Nana Sarpong stated.
He added that investors will also be invited to see the project-work of students and finance them to cut down the growing unemployment rate in the country.
This plan, Nana Dwomoh Sarpong said, is to reinforce their commitment to train entrepreneurs so as to help boost Ghana’s economy.
Meanwhile, a total of 183 students from seven departments graduated. 19 representing 10 percent first class; 96 representing 52% got second class upper; and 64 representing 35%, and 4 representing 2% got second class lower and pass respectively. President of Radford Dr. Paul Effah charged the graduates to be good ambassadors and put whatever they have learnt into practice.
“Radford has prepared you to be entrepreneurs for society and the world of work. Go out there and create jobs for yourselves and others to demonstrate that you are a different breed of students, equipped to help in the country’s socio-economic transformation” he stated.
