Hearts of Oak executive board member Alhaji Akambi has bagged an advanced certificate in football business management and football scouting and talent ID from the Valley View University.
The hard-talking administrator graduated alongside other top-ranking football administrators, coaches and broadcast sports journalists.
Christine Enyonam Zigah, who is the the chairperson of the Referees Committee of the Ghana FA, also graduated with honours from the Football Scouting and Talent ID Course.
Akambi, who has been serving as a board of director of the former African champions since December 2015, has now been academically equipped to purse a diploma programme.
The graduation ceremony took place at the Valley View University Accra campus – Dodowa on August 28, 2022.
Akambi prominently featured in the graduating class of the 28th Graduation band after completing a 3-month program in advanced sports executive certificate put together by the Valley View University and Linked Sports & Business College.
He is expected to bring the knowledge he has acquired from the intensive theory-and-practical academic exercise on board to help the 2000 CAF Champions League winners to professionally run their affairs.
Linked Sports & Business College has partnered Valley View University to introduce the sports executive programs as a pilot to the specialised growing industry sports diploma and degree programs.
