Ghana?s quest into becoming a regional leader in development and social progress as well as address some of its myriad of challenges and problems are finding near solutions in the proliferation of quality private institutions of higher learning. One of them which is the focus for this article is the University College of Wisconsin International University in Accra.

Fees at most of these Colleges are reasonable and moderate. Most of them also offer Advanced degrees and if you are looking for quality education, why don?t you try these quality Colleges:
