We know that systemic change is challenging and unpredictable (because we’ve done it).

Accelerating Institutional Change

Minerva educational programs have been tested in diverse cultural contexts, small and large class settings, and with a range of learners. Our collaborative approach to program development accounts for each institution’s learner population, the specific objectives for the program, practical requirements, and other constraints. By tailoring curriculum, course, and lesson designs accordingly, we help partners achieve their intended learning—and business—outcomes.
