MASTER OF ADR PROGRAM

Many organizations, homes and the society, in general, experience conflicts daily but it appears are incapacitated in the handling of such conflicts, which often escalate into crisis – hence the level of instability seen around.

Appropriate Dispute Resolution (ADR) (others use the term “Alternative”) - we prefer the former term because we believe ADR can offer more appropriate procedures according to the needs of the dispute and the parties and hence able to produce better outcome than the traditional adversarial system.

Dr. Dan Dana was right in saying that “In the life cycle of every conflict, there is a point when it’s large enough to be recognized, but small enough to be resolved.”

The level of conflicts the world is experiencing lately compelled Gamey and Gamey Group to introduce the Master of ADR programme to equip professionals with practical tools for a period of twenty-five weeks on Saturdays and so prepare them to use the PULSE Discovery process of ADR.

The areas we cover has been carefully chosen to make the learning complete.  They are:

ACCREDITATION 

The question most often asked by those who wish to participate in the Master of ADR Programme is whether the course is approved by the National Accreditation Board (NAB) of Ghana. The answer is that when Gamey and Gamey Group attempted to obtain accreditation from NAB, the Group was told that, being a private professional institution which is not offering degree courses, there was no need for any approval from the Board.

The other important information is that we admit participants who are high level professionals with varying backgrounds like engineers, medical doctors, lawyers, human resource practitioners, accountants, lecturers, top military officers, police officers, and other professionals.

The academic partners of Gamey and Gamey Group are accredited in their respective countries and our courses are patronized by participants from other African countries. The project works of participants are submitted to the partners.

The program is for those from age 28 years and over.
