Driving to 1,200 Students


Over the past 17 years, Ashesi has established a reputation as a leader in undergraduate education in Africa, with an educational experience that fosters ethical leadership, an entrepreneurial mindset and the ability to solve complex problems. These qualities are what set Ashesi alumni apart. Every year, nearly 100% of Ashesi graduates find quality placement within six months of graduation. Over 90% of alumni have stayed to work for progress in Africa.

At the heart of the Ashesi experience is our inclusive campus culture. Students come from over 20 African countries to learn, live and innovate together. 47% are women, and 48% come from disadvantaged backgrounds. On campus, students join with faculty and leadership to engage in discussion, civic action and connection under a shared mission to transform the African continent.

Now we are working to extend the Ashesi education to more young Africans by growing to 1,200 students—while maintaining and strengthening this unique campus culture. To serve more students, we must continue to expand our facilities and strengthen our scholarship program. To provide students with the highest-quality education, we must invest in faculty development. And to help scale Ashesi’s model, we must expand our idea-sharing platform, The Education Collaborative. Launched in 2017, the Collaborative brings together African university leaders and stakeholders to collaborate on best practices in teaching, management and administration.

We invite you to partner with us to make this growth possible.
