The Department of Economics is one of the largest departments in the School of Social Sciences
at the University of Ghana. Since its establishment, the Department has produced eminent and
distinguished professionals at the international and national levels, both in government and
within the private sector.
The Department’s Alumni Congress initiative was launched in 2007 to establish and engage a
formidable network of current students and alumni to enhance the image of the Department
and the University.
Under the auspices of the Alumni Relations Office of the University of Ghana, the Department
is organizing its second Alumni Congress on 28th July 2021 to continue its efforts in engaging
with alumni and empowering current students to contribute towards national development.
The primary purpose of this second Congress is to strengthen the existing network of alumni
and to engage with stakeholders towards building partnerships aimed at enhancing the skills
of students towards the transformational development of the country in the 21st century era.
The Congress will consist of key activities including an Alumni lecture and an awards ceremony
for alumni. This will be followed on 29th and 30th July 2021 by an international conference,
hosted by the Department of Economics, to showcase current research in Economics in Africa.
In addition, a series of fundraising activities, interaction and socialization sessions between
alumni and current students will be facilitated. It is expected that this second Alumni Congress
will culminate in a more vibrant Alumni base to collaborate with faculty towards the continued
development of the Department.
It is anticipated that all Alumni and current students of the Department will participate in the upcoming event.
