The Alumni of Paris Graduate School of Management has been inaugurated in Accra.
The school, which is currently the second-best Private school in France established their presence in Ghana in the year 2003.
Addressing former students on the topic: “Bridging the Gap in Education and Entrepreneurship, The Role of the Alumni”, Acting Director of Public Relations at the Ghana Export Promotion Center, Ruth Maafo, who represented the Chief Executive Officer Afua Asabea Asare – Alumni of PGSM urged members of the group to initiate programmes that will impact on the younger general through scholarships, assisting with capital for job after internship etc.
The Dean of the Paris Graduate School, Professor Mike Wooi, urged the Alumni to use the Platform wisely for the development of the School and the country through Unity, dedication and commitment.
“What actually led you to be here really started with what I call self-belief . But the most important thing of your self-belief now has led you to become a graduate of our school. Now, this self-belief must be translated into Team-belief. Team Belief into the Alumni to make it successful. Any grouping cannot be successful without the input of the people who are in it. And I see hope that you will do so” Prof. Wooi said.
“We’ve had a few attempts before but I have the feeling that this one will work. The Association must reflect its (the school) standing in France. The Association got a role to play in ensuring that its members actually can help its self and at the same time help others.” Prof Wooi added and pledged his support for the group.
The newly inaugurated Alumni received goodwill message from top-class educational bodies including the West African Examination Council which happens to be the Examination conductors for PGSM in West Africa.
Individuals who worked selflessly to see the success of the inauguration were awarded with plaques while fallen Alumni like the late Mrs. Josephine Tandoh Asante, Manager in Charge of Communication at the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA), Were remembered with a minute silence.
