Samuelle Asante ’21 had a foolproof plan after high school, which did not include studying Business Administration at Ashesi. Her goal was to choose law as a major and work towards becoming a lawyer someday. What she thought was a foolproof plan changed. Instead, she, with her parents, decided on a Business Administration major in Ashesi.

This change, her new reality, took some adjusting. In the first few months of the first year, her interest in entrepreneurship piqued. She came to love her Foundation of Design and Entrepreneurship (FDE) course, which helped her unearth her drive for entrepreneurship.

In her first year at Ashesi, like several students at Ashesi, Samuelle Asante ’21 caught the entrepreneurship bug. The Design Thinking and Entrepreneurship class required for all students had helped her uncover a drive for problem-solving. Even though she had to do some adjusting from her original plan to study law and be a legal professional, she found herself enjoying her classes as a Business Administration student at Ashesi.
