MOU with Institute of Directors (IoD)

The Institute of Directors (IoD) - Ghana and the Sunyani Technical University have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to strengthen corporate governance and leadership teaching, learning and research in the university.

MOU with Institute of Directors (IoD)

Under the MOU, the university would be expected to give IoD-Ghana, its members, and the practitioners of corporate governance and leadership opportunities to access and utilize their networks, avenues, and needed resources to advance teaching, learning, and publication or dissemination of research findings about best practices in corporate governance.

Besides, the university will facilitate the formation of students’ associations of governance and leadership on its campus as well as second cycle institutions and also provide the necessary resources to advance the implementation of the MoU.

The President of IoD-Ghana, Rockson Kwesi Dogbegah signed the MoU on behalf of his organization while the Pro-Vice Chancellor of the university, Dr. Justice Solomon Korantwi-Barimah and the Registrar, Mr. Samuel Ankama Obour initialed for the institution at a brief ceremony in Sunyani.

Under the MoU, the Institute of Directors Ghana will, among others, provide avenues for faculty members, administrators and students of the university to conduct the needed research, undertake internships, engage in attachments and national service postings, and the dissemination of knowledge in research findings in corporate governance in Ghana.

Present at the meeting was the Chief Director of the Bono Regional Co-ordinating Council, Samuel Gyimah as well as other dignitaries.

In his brief remarks, the President of IoD-Ghana, Rockson Kwesi Dogbegah expressed grave concern about current practice where the Managing Directors and Chief Executive Officers of state-owned institutions are appointed by the President.

He therefore called for the amendment of the law to ensure that only Boards of Directors are mandated to make such appointments.

Mr. Dogbegah observed that the current practice does not give the boards enough power to hold the MDs and the CEOs accountable arguing that the law must be amended to conform to the principles of good corporate governance.

  2. Salancrete Building Blocks From A Mixture Of Sand, Laterite And Cement For Sustainable Housing Construction In Ghana

    This paper assesses the suitability of Salancrete block – mixture of sand, laterite and cement – for urban housing delivery in Ghana. Three Salancrete blocks were moulded from four lateritic soil samples obtained from Fiapre, Magazine, Kotokrom and S-Poly, all in the Sunyani Municipality. Also, three blocks each were moulded for sandcrete and landcrete (laterite and cement), using 10% cement content in each case. The 28-day compressive strength values were 5.76, 3.78 and 3.09 N/mm2 for Salancrete, Sandcrete and Landcrete respectively. It was concluded that combining laterite and sand will produce a more suitable block input for sustainable housing delivery in Ghana.

  3. Towards A Sustainable Ceramic Industry In Ghana: An Assessment Of The Working Environment Using Five Forces Industrial Model

    This paper discussed ceramics as an industry that is capable of improving Ghana’s economy and providing direct and indirect employment, and penetrating the international market. The working environments of the companies within the local industry were analysed using the Porter’s Five Forces Industrial Model which revealed that the Ghanaian Ceramic Companies are competitively weak in the areas of exports, and not able to compete favourably with new entrants, although, strong in the area of raw materials and resource inputs. Study showed that the challenges within the industry can be nipped in the bud if academia, industry and government work indivisibly.
