Ashesi University College
Founded by a visionary African, Ashesi empowers young Africans to develop new solutions to the continent's challenges. Ashesi University is an African initiated, world-class, non-profit, four-year university located outside of Accra, Ghana. Founded when Patrick Awuah, a Ghanaian, chose to leave his successful US software career and return to Africa, Ashesi has grown from 30 to 630 students, and has a 13-year record of producing graduates of exceptional integrity and professional ability. The mission of Ashesi is to educate a new generation of ethical, entrepreneurial leaders in Africa; to cultivate within our students the critical thinking skills, and the concern for others and the courage it will take to transform a continent.
