Join the inauguration of our new Engineering building – Saturday, Oct. 3rd, 2015
A timeline of progress in developing a world-class engineering program at Ashesi.
A green tech incubator where entrepreneurs will receive support to develop their ideas into strong and viable businesses.
At the 2014 Clinton Global Initiative meeting, Ashesi announced a bold new commitment.
Ashesi (Ah-SHESS-ee) means “beginning”, and Ashesi is a catalyst for the new entrepreneurs and new leaders that Africa needs.
Since 2002, Ashesi’s pioneering educational model has given graduates the skills and the courage to create solutions for Africa.
Organizations as diverse as GE Africa and Accion International (Microfinance) rely on Ashesi grads to grow and thrive in Africa.
Students and alumni are striving to transform their continent by working for innovation, efficiency, and transparency in all sectors.
Thanks to global partners and donors, 40% of students receive financial aid. Our diverse students come from across Africa.
