Nationwide Tracer Study on Most Viable Career Pathways Among Ghanaian Graduates

Brighter Investment, a social enterprise that provides full financial support to talented students in developing countries, in partnership with the Ministry for Business Development of the Republic of Ghana, and the Association of African Universities (AAU) will be conducting a nationwide career tracer study on most viable career pathways among Ghanaian graduates  in August, 2020. The study broadly seeks to identify the most viable career paths and factors contributing to career development and success among graduates in Ghana.

Graduates from Ghanaian Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education between 2010 and 2019 are eligible to participate in this study. Respondents will be required to fill a structured questionnaire which will only take five minutes to complete. The outcome of this study will provide policymakers with the needed data to make informed decisions regarding financing education, graduate employability, and business development in Ghana.

Through its partnering organizations, Brighter Investment will be conducting this nationwide tracer study specifically to:

  1. Utilize the results to make informed decisions with regard to higher education in the country and in Africa as a whole.
  2. Determine what education programs hold the highest career prospects for students.
  3. Expand supported programs and institutions and support more students.
  4. Inform decisions and create policies to increase employment and empower individuals to tow the path of entrepreneurship where and when necessary

It is important to note that Information provided during this study will be used for research purposes and to aid informed decision-making for the collaborators involved in the study. All partners hold a data protection certificate and will therefore treat data provided by respondents with anonymity and not use it for any other purposes outside the purposes stated above.

About Brighter Investment (BI): Brighter Investment has tested an investment-led funding model for higher education financing over the last five years in Ghana. The results to date show that BI students have outperformed their peers, increased their incomes and are less likely to be unemployed with their degrees. These positive first results suggest that BI’s investment model is a viable solution to improve access to higher education in Ghana. By providing financial support with income-based repayment, more brilliant but needy students in some Ghanaian universities have been supported in their University education.
