Ashesi University’s mission is to propel an African renaissance by educating next-generation ethical, entrepreneurial leaders and raising the bar for higher education in Africa. Located in Ghana, this non-profit, multidisciplinary university combines a rigorous liberal arts core with degree programs in Computer Science, Business Administration, Management Information Systems, and Engineering. A student-led honor code, hands-on learning, integrated community service, and real-world projects prepare students to develop solutions for the challenges facing their individual communities, countries and the continent.

Ashesi is now recognised as a leader in higher education in Africa, In 2018, the President of Ghana granted the University a Charter to operate as a fully autonomous institution; no longer to be supervised by a public university under Ghana’s accreditation system. Only 5 out of Ghana's 86 private universities have a charter, and Ashesi is the youngest in Ghana to have achieved such recognition. In 2020, Ashesi was ranked among the world's top 400 universities in the Times Higher Education University Impact Rankings; a ranking based on measurement of actions being taken by universities to help achieve the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. The university ranked highest in Ghana, and ninth in Africa.
