Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration - GIMPA • Accra, Ghana
Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), a public university consisting of four campuses, was founded in 2004 through an Act of Parliament. Its campuses are located in Accra – the capital of The Republic of Ghana (this campus is also known as the Greenhill Campus quite literally due to the look of the surrounding area), Tema, Kumasi, and Takoradi. The university boasts four schools and four research centres.
Originally the ‘Institute of Public Administration,’ the institution began in 1961 and was run by the Government of Ghana and aided by the United Nations Special Fund Project.
Today, its four schools are; GIMPA Business School, the School of Public Service and Governance, the Faculty of Law GIMPA, and the School of Technology. At GIMPA you can earn masters and executive masters degrees in areas such as public administration, governance, business administration, development management, technology, and leadership.
GIMPA employs 600 people, teaches an impressive 10,000 students, and has amassed a 15,000-strong alumni network. Languages at the university are English and French.
On the Greenhill Campus a branch of UniBank has been on site since 2012.
GIMPA has been and continues to be an essential part of Ghanaian infrastructure thanks to its training of public servants.
