A proven innovator in higher education, KGI created the first-of-its-kind professional science master’s degree in 1997, which has been replicated nearly 300 times by more than 130 institutions. Establishing the Minerva Schools at KGI is another step in advancing learning for the twenty-first century.
Minerva is dedicated to ensuring our students are equipped to fulfill their enormous potential. By combining a rigorous interdisciplinary curriculum, advanced learning technology, and immersive cultural experiences, we teach our students to solve the most complex global challenges. Our expert instruction, based on the science of learning, instills the fundamental cognitive skills and critical knowledge needed for success in any field.
All our courses are taught as intimate seminars, with direct professor engagement. Because rigorous, active learning is central to our pedagogy, there are no large introductory classes, nor lectures of any kind. Every class involves face-to-face interaction between classmates and their professors.
A Minerva education is highly selective and uniquely accessible. Our demanding admissions process, including a series of assessments and interviews, ensures all admitted students meet the highest levels of individual drive, commitment and academic achievement. This entirely merit-based admissions policy and our distinctly scalable approach, allows us to accept all applicants who qualify.
This unparalleled education, together with our Professional Development Agency, positions graduates to thrive in an increasingly interconnected global context.
