THE 11TH CONGREGATION OF KAAF UNIVERSITY COLLEGE

The much-anticipated moment is here. The 11th congregation of KAAF University College is scheduled on December 9th, 2022. Due to the pandemic, the university’s previous graduations were held online, to block the chain of the spread of the Covid-19 virus. It was in alignment with strategic plans that had been put in place by the government, the Ministry of Health and other stakeholders. After a long wait, the University is set to organize its first in-person graduation post covid.

For the past years, the school has delivered its mandate and commitment to producing well-rounded employable graduates with high intuitive capacity and innovative tendencies and several others performing well in their fields of interest. The school has spearheaded this cause and continues to.

Staying true to our core mandate of producing and unleashing well-trained entrepreneurs, this year will not be any different as we are poised to commission dynamic and astute young professionals who are ready to launch into the cooperate world to cause positive change in every sphere.

Join us on our main campus at Gomoa Fetteh Kakraba, off the Winneba Highway as we usher these young, energetic, intelligent, creative, innovative and talented young men and women into the cooperate world. Many dignitaries and notables are set to grace the occasion and make it a memorable one. Come and make a genuine connection. Let’s all come and share in the happiness of those who have successfully completed their years of study. Make a date!
