The goal is that Ashesi's business graduates will be capable of playing active, diverse roles, to shape the growth of African businesses and organisations.
Management Information Systems
In today’s rapidly changing business world, a company’s ability to compete depends on how quickly that enterprise can respond to change. Central to this ability, is the successful use of information, and by extension, the appropriate deployment of information technology.

This interdisciplinary program trains graduates who are uniquely empowered to enhance the competitiveness of enterprises in the new knowledge economy.
