It has emerged that since its inception, Ghanaian private university, Ashesi University, has had all of its students obtain meaningful placements in a maximum of six months after graduation.
In a statement by the school, it is indicated all the young graduates either got meaningful employments, started their own businesses or went into graduate school within this timeframe.
This is in sharp contrast with students who graduate from other private and public institutions all over the country who struggle to start anything for themselves or even get jobs.

In an article published by citifmonline.com, it was confirmed that Data from the Institute of Statistics, Social and Economic Research (ISSER) of the University of Ghana revealed only 10 per cent of graduates find jobs after their first year of completing school.
The data also indicated that it sometimes take up to 10 years for a large number of graduates to secure employment due to varied challenges that ranged from the lack of employable skills, unavailability of funding capital for entrepreneurship, poor attitudes of graduates towards job opportunities, as well as the low capacities of the industry to absorb the huge numbers.
This information suggests that Ashesi University may be doing something right to train its students to become more than simply academically inclined.
Ashesi University was founded in 2002 by Ghanaian engineer, educator, and entrepreneur Patrick Awuah.
