The University of Professional Studies, Accra, put up a gallant display of academic showmanship in its maiden appearance at the grand finale of the 2022 Tertiary Business Sense Challenge (TBSC).
UPSA, which broke its three-year jinx of not making it to the finals of the inter-university competition, emerged 2nd runner-up in the fourth edition.
The UPSA team, which began the opening round on poor footing, quickly bounced back in the second round with a slim lead and maintained a consistent performance throughout the third, fourth, and fifth rounds.
At the end of the contest, KNUST emerged winners with a point tally of 53.2, followed by UCC with 47.7 points and UPSA with 30.2 points.
UPSA was represented in the competition by Sunday Solomon Awaah, Kweku Berkoh and Lawrence Benson from the faculties of Management Studies, and Accounting and Finance.
