University Of Professional Studies Accra



We strive to provide and promote higher professional education and training in business and other social sciences related discipline by leveraging a structured mix of scholarship with professionalism in Ghana and beyond. We believe our first responsibility is to the students, staff, parents, alumni and all other stake holders. In meeting their need, everything we do epitomize scholarship with professionalism. A scholarship to us means “the pursuit and acquisition of knowledge” and Professionalism means “application of knowledge for development in an ethical way” these two are the key-driven forces of UPSA’s existence.


In achieving its mission and objectives, the University relies on three functional areas which include:

  • Teaching and Learning
  • Research and Community Service
  • Business Development and Skills Training
