Speaking to The New Finder at the Accra fair, Director, International Operations of TIES Global, Mr Suresh Anand Mani said the feedback from the students had been impressive and promising.

Touting the credentials of educational institutions in India, Mr Mani said India boasts of some of the best public and private universities in the world. He noted that India had public universities which are among the first engineering institutions established outside Europe in 1794.

All the Indian universities represented at the fair, he disclosed, “are well reputed and offer various programmes in engineering, technology, health sciences, medicine, management, law and agriculture among others at the undergraduate, postgraduate and research levels.”

He added that “all these programmes are available for Ghanaian students and they have different scholarships also.” 

Making a case for Indian universities, Mr Mani said, “Indian degrees are recognised across the globe while the cost of education in India is very affordable.”

“If you take any top multinational company, in the world, the Chief Executive Officers are from India and had their first degrees from India. All the top CEOs of the world had their educations in India. This shows the quality of education in India.”

Mr Mani was impressed with the support provided by the Indian High Commission in Accra and the Ghana Education Service saying, “with the incredible support we continue to receive from our partners we will continue to do this in the coming years.”
