The University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) formerly the Institute of Professional Studies (IPS) was birthed out of a dream of a young man in 1965 as a private business professional institution. By dint of hard work, the founder, Nana J.K. Opoku Ampomah successfully carved a niche for the Institute as the only tertiary educational institution to train professional accountants and administrators in the whole of West Africa at the time. The institution has undergone a lot of restructuring over the years through to where it is today.
UPSA remains the only public institution in Ghana with the mandate to offer both academic degrees and provide tuition for business professional qualifications.
To be a world class education provider in both academic and professional disciplines, nationally entrenched, regionally recognized and globally relevant.
We strive to provide and promote quality higher education and training in management and other related disciplines by leveraging a structured mix of Scholarship with Professionalism in Ghana and beyond.
