Our History

By 2009 Pan-African Institute of Governance and Leadership Studies had become a leading training organization in Ghana, meeting the training needs of most of Ghana’s leading public and private Institutions.

In 20014 Graduate School of Governance and Leadership (GSGL) became the graduate division of Almond Institute. This was a new strategic direction that allows for the introduction of undergraduate and other innovative programmes

The mission of ALMOND INSTITUTE is to discover, develop and mould an elite group of leaders into global servant leaders, educated to global standards, who will lead change, drive innovation and solve complex problems. In the process, we redefine leadership to mean service, a new definition that moves leadership from the top of the pyramid to its base.

We achieve this mission through the provision of technology-driven world class education, taught by a world-class faculty in a Christ-centred scholarly environment that integrates faith and learning.


ALMOND INSTITUTE aspires to create a technology-driven global centre of excellence in Africa that will serve as a hub for research into new leadership thinking, providing solutions to the leadership crises in Africa and the rest of the world.


ALMOND INSTITUTE develops servant-leaders in the manner of Jesus Christ who live out their daily life with a deep and profound commitment to:

  • Leadership with integrity
  • Service with humility
  • Discipleship with love
  • Scholarship with ethics


At Almond we believe that education must not only inform the mind, it must also transform the heart. When the mind is informed a knowledgeable person is developed; when the heart is transformed character is developed. People with both knowledge and character are needed to transform society. That is why at Almond we inform the mind and transform the heart. This is what we call the ALMOND EFFECT.
