Background & Rationale

ABS is a prestigious Christian Business School accredited to offer a range of globally recognised postgraduate, undergraduate and professional programmes in a Christ-centred scholarly environment that integrates faith and learning. The institution dates from 2004 when it was founded as a training institution by Bishop Gideon and Lady Olivia Titi-Ofei. It has enjoyed three separate name designations prior to assuming its current name, each reflective of its educational journey. First, it was founded as the African Centre for Leadership and Human Resource Development (AFRILEAD) to provide quality affordable short-term training to very busy professionals. Second, in 2010 it became the Graduate School of Governance and Leadership to coincide with its expansion into undergraduate programmes.

Our new name – Accra Business School – emphasizes the importance of our location, specialty and specificity of education provision. In a short period of less than 20 years, we have established ourselves as one of the most successful providers of private sector higher education in Ghana with a stellar reputation in both Ghana and internationally as evidenced by our portfolio of collaborative partnerships that we have secured.
