Mission Statement

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 is a private, non-profit university that features a four-year bachelor’s program grounded in a liberal arts core curriculum, offering degrees in Business Administration, MIS, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.

Ashesi began instruction in 2002 with 30 students in crowded rental buildings. Today, 679 students from 22 African countries live, work, and study together on our world-class campus in Berekuso, Ghana. Ashesi students come from diverse economic, ethnic, religious and national groups. Women make up 47% of students and 55% of students receive need-based financial aid. To date, Ashesi has given over $5M in scholarships.

Ashesi graduates work for progress in Africa: 100% of our graduates have found quality placement within six months of graduating, over 90% have stayed in Africa.
