About The Institute

We are a tertiary institution established under the auspices of the Catholic Archdiocese of Accra in 2007. CIBT is accredited by the National Accreditation Board and Affiliated to the University of Ghana. Our first batch of graduates completed their studies at the end of the 2011/2012 academic year. There is something special about CIBT. It is located in the centre of Accra and is compact and not too large. Therefore we are able to maintain a friendly campus community and no student is missing in the crowd.

Students are equipped with the necessary resources to help them respond effectively as leaders in Business, professional and civic life. Being a Catholic Institution CIBT creates a stimulating Christian atmosphere to maintain a Catholic identity but at the same time it embraces all faith traditions. Students have the possibility to choose professional and civic life.

    • Linking strategic planning with outcomes assessment
    • Encouraging strategic thinking
    • Assuring adherence to statements of philosophy (e.g. teaching philosophy) throughannual performance evaluations
    • Obtaining internal and external evaluations from constituents
    • The Institute endeavours to achieve excellence in higher education through professional activity and creative teaching governed by the principles of academic freedom.
