The findings established that the factors that influenced postgraduate students in their brand selection of Ghana‘s Premier Business School included; Good image/reputation, Knowledge about UGBS, tuition cost, emotional bond / attachment, premiership of UGBS, expert/knowledgeable faculty, conducive environment/ availability of educational facilities, proximity / convenience and course content/ career prospects ranking and that they go through a decision making process during their brand selection and that the decision process is based on a combination of information, word of mouth, individual attitude and institutional reputation at each stage.
