Ashesi University's mission is to educate a new generation of ethical, entrepreneurial leaders in Africa; to cultivate within our students the critical thinking skills, the concern for others and the courage it will take to transform their continent. Our vision: an African Renaissance driven by a new generation of ethical, entrepreneurial leaders.

Description

Ashesi University Foundation is a public non-profit organization located in Seattle that leverages support for Ashesi University in Accra, Ghana.

Ashesi University in Ghana is contributing to a renaissance in Africa by educating a new generation of ethical, entrepreneurial leaders. Ashesi’s curriculum combines a liberal arts core with practical, high-impact majors in business, computer science, and engineering, and a 4-year focus on leadership development and community service. Ashesi students come from diverse economic, ethnic, religious, and national groups. Women make up 48% of the student body, and 47% of students receive need-based financial aid. Nearly all of Ashesi’s graduates receive job offers, start businesses or enter graduate school within six months of graduation, and over 90% have stayed to work for progress in Africa.
