The National Multiplication Training (NMT) Project for 2023/2024 in Ghana, generously funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), marks a significant achievement in the realm of higher education. This prestigious grant has been awarded to four senior faculty members from four renowned universities, a testament to their expertise and commitment to educational excellence. The distinguished awardees include Dr. Mrs. Vida Korang from the Catholic University of Ghana, Dr. Sewoenam Chachu from the University of Ghana, Professor Anthony Amoah from the University of Environment and Sustainable Development, and Professor Joseph Adjei from the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration.

During a detailed interview with the media, the project's leader, Dr. Vida Korang, elaborated on the goals and structure of the NMT. This project falls under the umbrella of DAAD's 'Dialogue on Innovative Higher Education Strategies' (DIES), an initiative designed to enhance higher education management in developing countries. The focus of this year's programme is on the "Adoption of Effective Internationalisation Strategies in Technical Universities in Ghana". Its primary objective is to augment the internationalization strategies of these institutions, ensuring they are well-equipped to engage on a global platform.

The project is structured as a comprehensive two-phase training program, encompassing aspects of Project Management and the Internationalisation of Higher Education Institutions. Scheduled for February and June 2024, these training sessions are meticulously planned to offer immersive, hands-on experience. Participants will benefit from interactive training sessions, enriched with discussions led by experts and opportunities for peer learning. The first phase of this training is set to take place from February 23 to 26, 2024, at the Catholic University of Ghana in Sunyani. This will be followed by the second phase, which will be hosted by GIMPA in Accra. This project not only signifies a leap forward in higher education strategies for Ghana but also fosters a collaborative and innovative approach to learning and internationalization in the academic sphere.
