At Obokese University of Excellence, African Culture is a part of the curriculum. As such this certificate studies the best practices of traditional leadership and governance models of African Chieftaincy as well as traditional forms of democracy. We will ensure each model is studied to maximize development in Africa.

Being a university founded by Chiefs, Chiefs throughout Africa are welcomed at Obokese University of Excellence. The university recently launched Ghana’s first Chieftaincy Development Seminar and this certificate follows up on the development role of Chiefs.

The symbiotic and dual relationship of the Chieftaincy and Elders combined with traditional democracy is a unique governance model that this certificate will explore.

This certificate will be taught for free in OUE’s online digital platform as the university. In the near future, the certificate will expand offerings to include two and four year degree offerings.

Practice without thought is blind. Thought without practice is empty.
