ICM appoints International Coordinator for Ghana

9:18am GMT, Thursday, 15 November 2007

ICM is pleased to announce that Getrude Nyarko has been appointed our new International Coordinator for Ghana.

As a former ICM student and Ghanaian, Getrude is an ideal candidate for the role. She first studied for an ICM Graduate Diploma in Marketing in Ghana, and then went on to write a dissertation in Market Research which enabled her to complete an Associate Degree in Marketing in September 2006.

With her ICM qualifications, Getrude was then accepted to study a Master of Arts in Business Management at the prestigious University of Liverpool which she completed in 2006.

Getrude will be based in Accra and will have a range of responsibilities, including the facilitation of correspondence between Ghana and the UK, and consulting with national executives on behalf of the Institute.

She also plans to establish a new learning resource centre in Accra, which will provide Ghanaian ICM students with access to computers, books and learning equipment.

Commenting on her new appointment, Getrude said: “This is an excellent opportunity for me to lead and coordinate an organisation which is at the forefront of management development in Ghana.

“I hope to centralise the administration of ICM with effective management reviews to make registering and sitting examinations more accessible, as well as working in partnership with higher learning institutions to maintain the high standards of ICM’s accreditation scheme.”

Getrude has previously undertaken roles as Senior Marketing Officer at Agapex Worldwide in Ghana and part-time Support Worker for The Disabilities Trust in the UK.
