On behalf of the Governing Council and the Management of the University, I warmly welcome all freshmen and women of the 2021/2022 academic year to the Akenten Appiah-Menka University of Skills Training and Entrepreneurial Development (AAMUSTED), formerly the Kumasi and Asante Mampong Campuses of the University of Education, Winneba.
