Project Report | Jun 3, 2019
Summer School & New Business Challenge

By Dr. Peter Carlos Okantey | Project Leader


On the 1st June, 2019, our summer students arrived on campus to begin summer school as scheduled on the Academic Calendar for the 2018/2019 Academic Year. Our summer school students enrolled into Palm Institute in February of 2019. The summer students will be on campus from June 6th to August 14th, 2019. During their stay on campus, they will take courses that were run during the first semester of the 2018/2019 Academic Year to enable them catch up with colleagues who enrolled in September, 2018. The lectures are intensive, packed with activities and projects designed to give our summer students an excellent experience similar to what their counterparts who enrolled in September experienced. All our summer students are beneficiaries of the $1/Ghc 1 for Higher Education Project Funds.


On May, 24th, 2019, Two (2) Palm Institute students; Sandra Ohenewaa Djan and Samira Awal were selected to participate in the Kickoff Ceremony of the New Business Challenge (NBC) organized by the Ghana Netherlands Business Culture and Council (GNBCC). Samira Awal was selected as one of the twenty (20) finalists nationwide to travel to the Netherland for Ten (10) days. Palm Institute wishes Samira Awal well during her travels to the Netherlands. The GNBCC is a Dutch Ghanaian-based organization that organizes and oversees a competition dubbed the “New Business Challenge” (NBC). This competition has been in existence since 2015. It is organized annually between top universities colleges in Ghana and Netherlands. Palm Institute happens to be one of the Five (5) colleges and universities in Ghana that participated in this international competition this year. Finalists of the New Business Challenge (NBC) competition get to travel to the Netherlands for Ten (10) Days visiting and working with their Dutch university counterparts with all expenses paid for by the Dutch Embassy.

Thank you for your continued support.
