Join us for a lively discussion with Ashesi University alumna, Aba Ackun, whose work has improved the lives of impoverished citizens across Africa, and learn how Ashesi University is educating the ethical, entrepreneurial leaders that Africa so urgently needs.
About Aba (pictured above, bottom left)
After graduating from Ashesi in 2007, Aba, a former scholarship student, won awards and broke boundaries as a woman working in the Ghanaian finance industry before choosing to apply her skills to microfinance. She joined an international company and improved their capacity to help impoverished families across six African countries. Aba is currently completing her graduate studies at Darden School of Business, University of Virginia, after which she plans to return to Ghana to contribute her skills to create African progress.
Since 2002, the mission of Ashesi University is to educate a new generation of ethical, entrepreneurial leaders in Africa. Ashesi is a world-class 4 year university with majors in computer science, MIS, and business. Ashesi’s 500+ graduates have a 100% placement rate, and 95% stay in Africa where they create innovative solutions, grow local businesses, and improve lives on a national and regional scale.
