A research workshop has been held to equip graduate students of the University of Cape Coast. The three day workshop, an initiative of the executive council of GRASAG UCC was done in collaboration with the research committee of the association.
The research seminar which was on the theme, Deepening Understanding in Data Analysis was aimed at equipping graduate students with the requisite skills needed to advance their research work. The workshop among other things was to expose the graduate students to the technicalities of data analysis in a practical way.

Students were introduced to Data analysis software, statistical tools of analysis, and reporting output in APA format. Data analysis software were also installed on individual computers.
Speaking at the workshop, the research committee head, Prince Yeboah Asare, a second year Ph.D Management Education student said, as part of the committee’s resolve to ensure that graduate students complete their research work on time, series of such workshops will be organised to enhance the early completion rate of graduate students.
