Higher Education for the 21st Century. Minerva is a global university program that, in just four years, has reinvented higher education to become one of the most selective institutions in the world.

Meet the Founders. Combining the expertise of former Harvard University dean and renowned learning psychologist, Dr. Stephen M. Kosslyn, and Silicon Valley entrepreneur Ben Nelson, Minerva was designed to rectify the many flaws facing higher education, from unfair admissions practices and rising tuition, to outdated curriculum and ineffective learning techniques. The result is the first liberal arts institution for the 21st century student.

The Minerva Experience:

  • Global immersions – Minerva students live in seven different cities – San Francisco, London, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Seoul, Hyderabad and Taipei – during their four years of study, for a truly global experience.
  • Innovative learning – All classes are highly interactive, discussion-based seminars taught using proven instructional methodologies and innovative technology. Check out our class video here
  • Practical experience – Not only will students develop the transferable skills needed to succeed in the modern world, they will have ample opportunities to apply class learnings in real-world contexts, by working on projects and engaging with top organizations in each city.  
  • Personalized, Lifelong Career Support – Minerva students receive personal coaching, access to publicists and other unprecedented support as students, and throughout their post graduate lives. After just one year at Minerva, students secured internships and research positions at organizations like Apple, Amazon, Airbnb, Uber, IDEO, CalTech, and UCSF.
  • Accessible – Tuition is $12,500/year – a fraction of the cost of other top tier universities. Minerva offers generous need-based financial aid to ensure all admitted students have the opportunity to attend, regardless of where they come from.
