African University College of Communications
AUCC is a private tertiary institution dedicated mainly to the study, research and teaching of the Media and Communication. AUCC was initially established in 2002 as the African Institute of Journalism and Communications (AIJC) by Hon. Kojo Yankah, a former Editor of Ghana’s widest circulation newspaper, the Daily Graphic, former Director of the Ghana Institute of Journalism, a former Minister of State, and a former Member of Parliament in the Fourth Republic of Ghana. According to the Founder, AUCC was established to “bring to the front row the enormous importance of communication in today’s world.”

Reasons To Study Here
The Mission of AUCC as a higher educational institution is to prepare lifelong learners to become innovative problem-solvers and ethical leaders in the fields of communication, business and related areas through excellence in inter-disciplinary teaching, research, and collaboration at the local, regional and global levels using a Pan-African framework.
Our Vision is to become a centre of excellence in communication, business and related areas by providing opportunities for student learning, research, professional and economic development for the progress of the continent of Africa and the global community.
At the African University College of Communications, our students live, work, and study in the heart of Ghana’s most vibrant and busiest city, Accra. Accra is home to more than 1,000 branches and head offices of well-known businesses from virtually every part of the world.
Located at the centre of the business district is Adabraka, an important town in the history of the city. Built on a tradition of African socio-political disquisition, Adabraka is also home to some of Ghana’s important landmarks (the Kwame Nkrumah Circle, The Holy Spirit Cathedral, etc.), literature, and artistic scenes, making it impossible to run out of things to do!
