“As a university, we always seek to offer high-quality programs that meet both regional and global needs. The field of HR is an evolving one and career prospects are not only available but growing as the world of work is constantly changing.

Webster’s classes whether on- or offline are American teaching styles, encouraging engaging discourse between students and faculty, and an international perspective. During the event, Webster Ghana’s Academic Director, Dr. Michael Williams, shared on the 36 credit hours that make up the new HRM degree curriculum, including courses in Organizational Behavior, Training & Development, and Employment Law, to name a few.
