The deputy Minister of Education, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has disclosed that Ashes University College will receive its presidential charter by close of year 2016.
“I am so delighted to announce today that the interim assessment report that we have cited from the National Accreditation Board (NAB), points to one fact.
“That fact, is that for a certainty, before the year 2016 ends, Ashesi University is going to receive its presidential charter! This is a feat worth celebrating,” he said.
This means that the university can begin awarding its own degrees. The award of a charter means the university has met all the quality control checks by the NAB and needs no supervision from an older university.
Ashesi has been mentored for the minimum 10 years by the University of Cape Coast.
The university offers four-year bachelor of science programmes grounded in a liberal core curriculum, featuring degrees in Business Administration, Management Information Systems, Computer Science, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Computer Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.
