See the world's youngest continent - and its future - through the eyes of its young people.

Ashesi's impact begins with a personal investment: in our students - Africa's next generation of leaders - and their education. On this trip, you will see the tangible results of this investment as you meet and connect with Ashesi students and alumni and learn about how their work is shaping the continent's future. You will also see how we enable students to take their ideas forward, and contribute meaningfully to the world beyond Ashesi.



Experience Ashesi's teaching and learning model, and hear from the faculty and people who bring it to life. 

As we take the pandemic's lessons forward, Ashesi's faculty continue to grapple with balancing the successes of the last two decades with the new skills required for the future ahead. While on campus, you will hear how faculty combine experiential learning, applied research, and industry insights to bring education to life in our classrooms and beyond. You will also see some of the exciting solutions and ideas coming out of student-faculty teamwork.



Learn about how Ashesi is building partnerships to transform education outcomes for thousands. 

Together with participating universities in our Education Collaborative – an Ashesi-led higher education programme - we have collectively influenced education reforms for some 116,000 students since 2017. The Collaborative has big ambitions to strengthen outcomes for at least 1,000,000 students over the next decade. Deep Dive participants will learn about this approach to scaling impact, and the collective work being done to strengthen African higher education. 



Meet Ashesi's leadership team and founder, and learn about the university's goals for the next decade.

Over the last twenty years, Ashesi has grown from a bold idea launched with 30 students to a globally recognised force multiplier in African higher education changing the lives and work of thousands of people and organisations. What are the learnings from the past two decades, and what will Ashesi's priorities be in the decade ahead? During the Deep Dive, you will meet Senior University leaders - including Founder and President Patrick Awuah - and engage in conversations about these questions.



Previous Deep Dive events have been attended by many individual donors, donor families, as well as various stakeholder organizations. Take a look at our previous Deep Dive Programme for 2021.
