IPMC Ghana: Admission, Courses, Fees, and More
Education, they say is the key to success but over the years, the number of unemployed graduates in Ghana keeps on increasing. This could be attributed to several factors and one of them includes the lack of practical education in some of the public and private universities and tertiary institutions across the country.
Due to the introduction of technology and its global advancement, the need for quality and practical ICT education has become very necessary. In Ghana, IPMC is a leading name when it comes to the study of quality and highly practical technology-related courses/programmes.
IPMC which stands for Intercom Programming and Manufacturing Company has existed for over a quarter a decade (25 years) and has during this period imparted knowledge to many Ghanaians across all the tech fields. IPMC has over the years partnered with some of the leading companies in the tech space like Oracle, Microsoft, Pearson, Lenovo, Huawei, CISCO, Citrix, DELL Technologies, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, IBM, ETC.
Through these partnerships, IPMC has brought its students closer to achieving their goals by providing them with hands-on experience with some of the tools they will use when working after school. This is exactly what makes IPMC Ghana stand out from the rest.
