The 4th Inter-Faculty Research Seminar of the Pentecost University College was held on Thursday, 22nd 2012 under the auspices of the Inter-Faculty Research Committee which is chaired by the Vice-Rector, Professor K.B. Omane-Antwi.
The Inter-Faculty Research Seminar is a forum for discussion and interaction among Faculty, Staff and Students at Pentecost University College, Sowutuom Campus – Accra. It also connects the University College to industry, commerce and the academic community in Ghana.
This event was instituted in line with the University’s mission of being on the cutting edge of the dissemination of knowledge, quality education, research and training for the purpose of producing an excellent human resource base to meet the demands of Ghana’s development.
This idea of inter-disciplinary research fosters both a remarkable record of achievement and enables the faculty to leverage the relatively small size of the university to achieve an impact well beyond the sum of its parts.
The series highlights one hallmark of Pentecost University's exceptional faculty, which is its devotion to both research and teaching. At PentVars there is a close link between world-class research and inspired teaching of students at all levels.
The event was attended by staff, students and visitors from sister universities and the general public. The Chairperson for the occasion was Dr. Acheampong Osei from the University of Ghana, Legon.
As a lecturer of the Faculty of Engineering Health and Computing, Mr. Peter Tobin’s research did an expository field study on Factors Affecting the Adoption of Transformational Mobile Banking by the Unbanked.
Mr. Paul Nero Batanye, a barrister-at-law and a lecturer of the Faculty of Business Administration, presented on The Legal Framework for Oil and Gas Activities in Ghana.
Mr. Solomon George Zori from the Graduate School of Management, University of Cologne- Germany offered an Institutional Perspective on the Symbolic Adoption of the Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) in Africa.
