During the past few decades, globalization and cross-cultural interactions have
significantly transformed the Ghanaian society, making it a site of contestation,
of conflicting business interests and the struggle for economic and social power.
It is within this perspective of the transformation of the indigenous Ghanaian society
that the Catholic Institute of Business and Technology (CIBT) emerged.
The vision of CIBT is to become a leading Institution devoted to providing an intellectual,
moral and social environment that responds to the needs of a diverse and rapidly
transforming society. CIBT is committed to providing both the intellectual and social
environment that responds to the needs of a diverse and rapidly transforming society
in which graduates are prepared, not only for a promising and productive career
or participating in the global economy, but also for promoting the growth of socially
responsible and ethical leaders.
The mission of the Institute is to create a distinctively Catholic institution in
which Catholicism is effectively operative and education is truly geared to modern
society. CIBT therefore provides a professional education that opens doors in any
area of human endeavour through the combination of business, arts and science courses,
so that students can gain a comprehensive understanding of the social, cultural,
economic and political environment in which they live. Students also have the opportunity
to expand their horizon by exploring other areas of study, outside their specialized
fields, which will help them develop that flexible thinking critical for successful
leadership in any organization.
Through an innovative curriculum, CIBT aims at producing graduates of the highest
caliber who are committed to service and leadership in both the private and public
sectors of the national economy. CIBT education trains students to be analytical,
communicative, problem solving and decision making oriented – the kind of intellectual
skills needed by leaders who are solution-creators and critical thinkers in any
CIBT’s classes are designed to be INDUSTRIAL based – blending intellectual rigour
with collaboration with industry, motivating students to explore their goals and
strength both inside and outside of the classroom. CIBT focuses on learning through
hands-on experiences with up-to-date high-tech tools, using a variety of teaching
methods and practical experiences to challenge the student and prepare him/her to
excel in any career. The student may wish to work for a major corporation, enter
the Public Service or even dream of transforming his or her passions and interests
into career opportunities in the future. Through a wide range of required and optional
courses offered at CIBT, students develop fundamental intellectual and professional
skills while exploring all their options and interests. There are endless career
possibilities for which the student may prepare himself/herself.
