Ashesi University College

About Ashesi University College

Ashesi is a private, non-profit liberal arts university located in Ghana, West Africa. Our mission is to educate a new generation of ethical and entrepreneurial leaders in Africa; to cultivate within our students the critical thinking skills, the concern for others and the courage it will take to transform their continent.We offer a four-year bachelors programme grounded in a liberal core curriculum, featuring majors in Business Administration, Management Information Systems, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. With an academic program designed in collaboration with some of the world's best universities, and in partnership with local and multinational employers across Ghana, Ashesi has pioneered an educational experience like no other in Africa.

Our campus is an inspiring base for learning

Set on a 100 stunning acres overlooking Ghana's capital city Accra, Ashesi's campus is like no other. We have united traditional African design, modern technology and environmental best practices to create an inspiring base for young Africans to live, collaborate and study.

Our liberal education expands minds

Ashesi's core curriculum consists of courses that help students develop the critical thinking and communication skills necessary for a lifetime career of leadership. By teaching students to explore the connections between different information, separate the relevant from the irrelevant, question assumptions and analyse alternatives, the liberal core serves as a foundation for success and influencing the world.

We are a community of trust

In keeping with our values of ethics and leadership, the university community agreed to adopt an Honour Code in 2008, that was voted into force by the student community. Under the Exam Honour Code, students take all their examinations without invigilators, taking on the responsibility to maintain honesty in exams. The code was a step towards sustaining the high-trust community that we continue to build, and puts students in charge of their own ethical posture.

A pan-African university, with global reach

Our community thrives on the diversity of its people. With over twenty countries represented, conversations on campus are rich and full of perspective. Our growing alumni network extends all across Africa, and as members of the Ashesi community, students will find Ashesi camaraderie wherever they go.
