    Minerva is a pathbreaking educational innovator, preparing exceptional, lifelong learners to address the most complex challenges of our time. Minerva’s mission, to nurture critical wisdom for the sake of the world, is being pursued through its flagship university programs and select strategic partnerships.

    By providing a transformational higher education to the world’s top students, the Minerva Schools at KGI prepare future generations of purpose-driven leaders, pragmatic innovators, and informed global citizens. Recognized as the most selective undergraduate program in the world, the Minerva Schools is also the exemplar of the new model of learning that Minerva has pioneered.

    The global network of mission-aligned partners that Minerva is building expands its ability to design and deliver transformative learning and talent development programs to learners at multiple stages—from secondary school students to undergraduate and graduate degree candidates to working professionals and executive leaders—and promotes the comprehensive reform of educational systems.

    In this way, Minerva is extending the benefits of its educational model to a broad collective of individuals, institutions, organizations, and governments, enabling the widespread development of adaptable skills that can be applied across contexts, and paving the way for expansive societal change and the improvement of life on earth.
