Millar Open University introduces 6 post-graduate certificate courses

The Millar Institute for Transdisciplinary and Development Studies (MITDS) also known as Millar Open University has designed and is ready to mount 6 post-graduate certificate courses.

The courses are; Policy and Strategy Studies, Information and Informatics, University Administration, Advance Business Administration, International Relations, and Agribusiness Studies.

These courses according to the President of MITDS, Prof. Dr. David Millar arose from persistent demands made to the institute to have career-oriented short courses for those already gainfully employed.

He said the institute is currently sourcing funds to kick start Post-Doctoral and Post-Master research programmes. These programmes mentioned are meant to upgrade the research skills, techniques, and knowledge of young academics who will want to conduct cutting-edge research of international quality.

The president of MITDS made these disclosures at the institute’s 4th congregation held at the Yikine community, a suburb of the Bolgatanga Municipality of the Upper East Region. The fourth congregation of the institute saw 4 PhDs, 3 MPhils, and 6 BSc students graduated.

Prof. Dr. Millar added that the institute has set up a unit that edits, proofreads, and re-structures final post-graduate thesis Works (especially Ph.D. Thesis) into Published Books, as it is done in Europe and other Advanced Countries.
