Graduating Trends

 

B. Post Graduates’ Programmes

Currently, post graduate programmes being run by Regent University are the MBA, MSc in Statistics, Master of Divinity, and the Master of Theology. At the beginning of the year under review, there were 134 post-graduate students out of which 30 (20 for MSc Statistics, 10 for MBA) have graduated. The current post graduate student population stands at about 104 (70 for MSc Statistics, 23 for MBA programme, 4 for MDiv, 7 for MTh) .

During the academic year, 11 students joined the M.Sc Statistics Programme while all those in the pre-MSc statistics completed and joined the main level.

The Accra center has 56 students and the Kumasi center has 14 students.  Currently the programme runs on a Trimester basis in the weekend School.

Discussion with the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology is underway for Regent University to host the KNUST BS.c and MPhil in Statistics programme in Accra.

There was no MBA intake during the year, as a result of a decision by management and programme requirement to allocate the maximum resources and attention to ensure the successful completion of the current students before next intake. Thus, the next academic year will be open for new MBA student intake.
