See Africa through the eyes of Ashesi

Get an insider’s view of a new Africa through our 9th Annual Trip to Ghana, October 7-15, 2017.
Over this 9-day journey, participants will experience Ashesi’s campus in Berekuso, as well as the capital city of Accra and coastal Ghana.

By connecting with our students and alumni, you’ll see what makes the Ashesi Experience so special. On campus, pair up with students to attend class and learn about upcoming initiatives from university leadership. Then, visit graduate workplaces to see our core values of ethical leadership and innovative entrepreneurship in action.

Of course, no trip to Ghana is complete without exploring Accra, Elmina and Cape Coast—we’ll traverse a rainforest, visit a historic slave fort, stroll through museums and art galleries, and relax on the beach. This trip is for anyone who wants to see beyond the tourism and news headlines, to the promise of today’s Ghana and the bright future for Africa that Ashesi students and alumni are working to create.

We hope you will join us!
