The Ghana Campus of Webster University has held a commencement ceremony at its East Cantonments’ campus in Accra to graduate its fifth batch of students.

Seven students graduated at undergraduate level with 20 also graduating at post-graduate level.

The graduates completed 14 months of study, graduating with a Master of Arts in International Relations or a Master of Business Administration, while the undergraduates completed a four year course in Bachelor of Arts in International Relations, Bachelor of Arts in Management or Bachelor of Arts in Media Communications.

The graduates are now part of the elite network of over two hundred thousand alumni across the world.

Stephanie S. Sullivan, United States of America (USA) Ambassador to Ghana, encouraged the graduating Class of 2019 to use the ideals that were instilled in them at Webster University to solve challenges of the world – from economic development and trade to regional security and strengthening good governance.

"I call on you to make your unique contributions to investing your time and energy – and, as your financial circumstances permit, your generosity – in Africa’s burgeoning youth population, especially in advancing economic growth," she said.

Madam Farida Nana Efua Bedwei, Co-founder of Logicel Limited and Guest Speaker at the ceremony said today’s globalised economy and African economy needed the inputs of forward thinking graduates.

"Use the lessons learnt in the classroom, into everyday practice and also use that to encourage a healthy debate of important things in the society, to employ a critical mindset in evaluation of opportunities and proffer respect for diversity and justice throughout the world. The education you have received has provided you with an opportunity to not only improve your own lives and the lives of your loved ones, but also to play a role in improving the lives of countless others. Our graduates are innovators, change makers, problem solvers," she said.

Ms. Christa E. Sanders, Webster Ghana Campus Director, said that Webster University had impacted quality American education in the graduates and are equipped to meet the challenges and demands of the 21st century.

"There is a hope that our graduates will depart our gates today here at Webster Ghana, feeling inspired encouraged by all they have learnt in the classroom and beyond. We believe that our graduates leave well equipped for what lies ahead and we challenge you graduates make your own mark on society and as we often hear, be the change that you wish to see. A new chapter has just begun and that chapter is full of promise and endless opportunities," she said.

Webster University, is an American University based in St. Louis, Missouri, and has a network of American-style residential international campuses in nine countries spanning over four continents.
