We collaborate closely with teams across your institution to create transformational new programs, while building internal capacity. Focusing on high-quality learning experiences, we help you modernize your curricula to impart durable, transferable skills, and provide better value to your learners.

Together, we can create hybrid programs with coherence across diverse modalities to better address the needs of the modern workforce and society.

New Universities

Our experience establishing Minerva University gives us profound expertise in every aspect of institutional development. Recent partnerships include the disruptive Universidad de la Libertad, a new business school in Mexico City that we are helping to create.

Building new universities is a complex undertaking and Minerva is the only partner equipped to support you at every stage.

Our Approach
Institutional Transformation

Minerva helps you translate your strategic vision into operational reality by engaging teams across your institution. Partners like Zayed University, one of three large state institutions in the UAE, are using program innovation to drive broad institutional change.

In addition to our deep design and implementation expertise, we provide critical change management support, helping you achieve much more than you could on your own.

Our Approach
Colleges & Degrees

Minerva can help you create distinctive new colleges and interdisciplinary degree programs. Recently, our collaboration with the University of Miami led to their first truly interdisciplinary degree, the Bachelor of Science in Innovation, Technology, and Design.

By partnering with institutions around the world, we have become adept at tailoring our integrated solution to diverse learners and learning environments.
