GE Partners with Ghanaian Universities on Capacity Development

One hundred students of the University of Ghana will have their tuition fully paid by General Electric (NYSE: GE) until they complete their studies. Ashesi University College has also signed on to a partnership with GE and the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) to build capacity for Ghana's young Oil and Gas industry. Both initiatives are part of a broader collaboration between GE and tertiary institutions in Ghana on capacity development.
