The Nduom School of Business and Technology (NSBT) at Ayensudo in the Central Region will now serve as a satellite campus to the University of Cape Coast beginning the 2021/22 academic year.
Management of the University of Cape Coast (UCC) led by the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Johnson Nyarko Boampong has thus inspected some facilities at the school aimed at ascertaining the readiness of the facility to accommodate some of UCC’s first year students, specifically those who will be admitted into the School of Business.
The facilities inspected included two hostel that will accommodate about 800 students, a library, a 1200 capacity auditorium, a cafeteria and an infirmary.
Speaking in an interview with ATLFMNEWS, the Vice Chancellor of UCC, Prof. Johnson Nyarko Boampong indicated that, the collaboration between UCC and the Nduom School of Business and Technology will help UCC realize its aim of increasing intake of students at the beginning of the academic year.
According to him, UCC has limited residential facilities but with the collaboration, additional facilities can be obtained to accommodate some of its fresh students.
He also noted that, the admission of more students into UCC will help the free SHS policy of government which has produced more SHS graduates who have ambitions of pursuing higher education in various tertiary institutions across the country.
“During my investiture I mentioned that we want to increase intake of students, and looking at the limited facilities especially residential accommodation for students at UCC, we decided to partner with the Nduom School of Business and Technology and have it as a satellite campus to accommodate the large number of students expected in.”
On his part, the Rector of Nduom School of Business and Technology, Rev. Prof. Daniel Agyapong Nyarko also expressed gratitude to both the immediate past and the current Vice Chancellor for accepting their proposal for a collaboration and revealed that the Management of Nduom School of Business and Technology is ready to receive UCC’s first year students who have been assigned accommodation there.
