After his visit to Ghana, James Emman Kwegyir Aggrey arranged for Achimota College to be mixed (men and women). He was also the Deputy Director of Achimota College. In the following sentence we can see his vision regarding the education of women:

“The surest way to keep people down is to educate the men and neglect the women. If you educate a man, you simply educate an individual, but if you educate a woman, you educate a whole nation” James Emman Kwegyir Aggrey

Many Africans consider him one of the fathers of the new African educational system. The University endorses this principle, which is why one of our priorities is to facilitate the access to higher education for the African women (Mission of EENI Business School & HA University).

The following sentence of James Emman Kwegyir Aggrey is a personal positioning to the colonial powers, very daring in full colonial era:
