Dear Alumni,  

       The Economics Department seeks to invite you to join us for the “Department of Economics International Conference” which is a three-day programme organized for Economics alumni as a way of reconnecting old friends and course mates from undergraduate or graduate days and also learning about the economy as we have it now.  

The Conference is going to be available both virtually and in person from the 28th of July to the 30th of July, 2021. With the in-person conference, the date and time will be communicated in due time. With regards to the virtual invitation, the link will be made available for all interested alumni to join us from the comfort of their homes. We urge all alumni interested in the program to register via our links especially if they want to be there in person. 

The President of the Republic of Ghana will be making an appearance at the event to grace it as well as other distinguished alumni of the department who form the movers and the shakers of the country.  

There will be an award ceremony during the Conference. Certain alumni will also be presented with awards during the course of the event to acknowledge their contribution to the economic society.  

This conference promises to be very interactive and exciting, one you wouldn’t want to be miss. All COVID-19 protocols will be strictly adhered to. Let us all stay safe and make plans to meet at the Conference. Registration is absolutely free.
