About University of Professional Studies (UPSA)

Formerly known as the Institute of Professional Studies (IPS), the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) is a public institution of higher education in Ghana. The main campus is located in Accra. UPSA is the only institution in Ghana to provide both a liberal arts education and a professional business curriculum. The Institute of Professional Studies was renamed the University of Professional Studies, Accra, according to the University of Professional Studies Act, 2012 (Act 850). The National Accreditation Board (Ghana) and the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) have both recognised UPSA as a legitimate educational institution.

And just before the 2019/2020 school year, it began implementing a dual qualification plan for its students. This system requires students to take and pass a chartered program like the ACCA, ICAG, CIM, CIMA, ICSA, and others, by the end of their degree study, to better enhance their chances of employment in the job market.

History: University of Professional Studies (UPSA)

The Institute of Professional Studies (IPS) Decree, 1978 (SMCD 200), nationalised the institution, which had been formed in 1965 as a private provider of tuition for professional business education. The Institute of Professional Studies Act, (Act 566), 1999, subsequently established it as a postsecondary institution with the mission of providing tertiary and professional education in Accountancy, Management, and other related fields.

The then IPS has been able to provide education for several business-related professional programmes. In order to give effect to the IPS Act 566, the then-institute began offering Bachelor's degree programmes in September 2005. In September of 2008, the university was awarded a Presidential Charter, thus making it a public research institution. The University provides education at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

To keep up with the changing nature of postsecondary education on a global and national scale, it was necessary to revise the original Act 566 of 1999, which had previously regulated the sector. University of Professional Studies, Accra, became its official name once the University of Professional Studies Act, 2012 (ACT 850) was passed (UPSA).

For the 2019/2020 school year, UPSA has implemented a new "dual qualification system" for its students. The goal of the strategy is to have students who enrol in a degree programme also complete a professional programme, such as ACCA, ICAG, CIM, CIMA, or ICSA, so that they may earn both a degree and a chartered certificate upon completion of their studies.

Professor Abednego Feehi Okoe Amartey, the Vice Chancellor, outlined the new regulations during the 11th Congregation of the University.

The UPSA AstroTurf Stadium, with a capacity of 500, was officially opened in September 2020 by President Nana Akufo-Addo. Wembley Sports Construction Company Limited, who are responsible for building the stadium, cut the first sod in July of 2019. The stadium has an artificial football field, as well as locker facilities, showers, storage areas, a VIP viewing section, and the University's Sports Directorate. The Vice President for Academic Affairs indicated that, the building is open to the public.
