Mountcrest University College


MountCrest University College (MCU) was established by Mr and Mrs Kwaku Ansa-Asare in August 2008. It was granted accreditation by the National Accreditation Board to run both graduate and undergraduate programmes on 1 January 2011.

MCU intends to become an institution of first choice for both staff and students by providing cutting-edge research, relevant teaching and learning, and proactive extension activities through its vision of becoming ‘a world-class teaching and research university, educating for life and addressing the challenges facing contemporary society’ and its mission of ‘training and preparing a new generation of graduates in body, mind and spirit, for the transformation of society’.

MountCrest University College currently has four Faculties and Schools:

  • Faculty of Law
  • School of Medical and Health Sciences
  • School of Publishing and Communication Studies
  • School of Research and Graduate Studies.

MCU is the only private university in Ghana which has mounted a programme in Law at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

In the near future we will open new campuses and launch new faculties and programmes in arts and social sciences, business administration, agriculture and science and the built environment.

Our student population, which is currently about 1,000, is from both Ghana and other African countries and there are excellent opportunities for teaching, learning and research for career development. We intend to increase the number to 5,000 within the next three years.

MCU has links with the Michigan State University and Fordham Law School in the US to promote staff-student exchange and research collaboration. Other links are in development.
