Professor Yayra Dzakadzie, Deputy Director-General of the Ghana Tertiary Education Commission (GTEC), actively champions the need for tertiary institutions to regularly update their curricula. This direct approach is vital to align academic programs with the evolving demands of industries, equipping graduates with essential skills for today’s competitive economy.

At the Nobel International Business School (NiBS) graduation ceremony, Prof. Dzakadzie addressed the rapid changes in the global landscape. “To ensure our students receive the best education, we must stay ahead of the curve,” he stated, focusing on the theme “Creating Tomorrow’s Workforce.”

The ceremony at NiBS, Africa’s premier doctoral school, celebrated the accomplishments of several graduates. Twelve individuals received their Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) degrees, 27 earned Certified Innovation Professional (CIP) status, and 14 attained Certified Strategy Professional (CSP) degrees. Awarded in partnership with the SBS Swiss Business School in Zurich, Switzerland, these degrees mark significant milestones in their academic and professional paths.

According to a report by the Daily Graphic, the event also featured the induction of new CIPs into the Certified Innovation Professional Association (CIPA), highlighting the importance of continuous professional development.

In his address, Prof. Dzakadzie motivated the graduates to embrace leadership roles, foster innovation, and drive change, emphasizing humility and integrity. He underscored their potential to significantly influence Ghana’s economy and society.

Simon Giger, the Swiss Ambassador to Ghana, also spoke to the graduates, urging them to apply their skills to address global issues like climate change and environmental degradation. “Your NiBS education has armed you with critical thinking, analysis, and synthesis skills essential for confronting future challenges,” she pointed out.

Finally, Prof. Kwaku Atuahene-Gima, Executive Dean of NiBS, counseled the students to view their graduation as the beginning of ongoing learning and adaptation in a swiftly changing world. “Continuous up-skilling and re-skilling are essential in our evolving global environment,” he advised.
