Ashesi University was formed on a foundation of creative thinking and entrepreneurship, with a goal of educating ethical leaders and business builders. In preparation to become problem solvers and employment creators, entrepreneurship is integrated throughout the Ashesi curriculum.
Research is an integral component of the educational process at Ashesi, in addition to providing world class teaching and continuing to evolve an innovative curriculum tailored for Africa. Student and faculty research addresses Africa’s most challenging issues and is guided by a desire for impact in scholars’ fields of study, their communities, and across the continent.
As Ghana’s first liberal arts college, Ashesi University offers students a broad intellectual grounding and seeks to provide them with the skills and depth of perspective needed to become ethical leaders in their communities. Our interdisciplinary liberal arts program is the heart of the Ashesi Education.
The success of our graduates as innovators tackling the continent’s toughest problems is proof that a university can effectively model, foster, and instill a culture of ethics and leadership. Here is how we do it.
