In 2013 Macalester established an exchange program with Ashesi University College, located outside Accra, Ghana. Ashesi is a private liberal arts college whose goal is to educate African leaders of exceptional integrity and professional ability. Ashesi's exchange program provides a unique opportunity for international students to experience life and learning in Ghana. Its unique academic program blends the liberal arts and Africana studies with professional fields such as business administration and computer science. From cultural classes in Africana studies, to courses in economics, creative writing and design, Ashesi provides an opportunity for international students to experience and reflect upon a wide array of issues and ideas that have shaped Ghana and the world. Ashesi's core values - scholarship, leadership, and citizenship - parallel Macalester's educational mission.
