Minerva students bring global perspectives, adaptive mindsets, and practical knowledge to organizations of all types and sizes. Beginning in their first year, undergraduates engage in term-time and summer work with partners across private, public, and social sectors.
Through co-designed programs, from research labs to innovation hubs, partners provide students with valuable professional experiences, while their organizations benefit from inexpensive individual and team-based project work which is aligned to their strategic objectives. As students develop their skills, the value they provide increases in kind. Minerva students are also uniquely prepared for remote work opportunities because of their daily experiences with self-directed assignments and classes in Forum™, Minerva’s virtual learning environment.
These professional engagements with students ultimately allow partners to identify exceptional prospects and to establish a highly-skilled, culturally-savvy talent pool.
Minerva designs and implements a range of customized Professional Learning & Development programs for employees at all organizational levels. From established courses to customized curricula, partners can provide continuing education to develop skills and deepen knowledge in a variety of critical areas, including understanding complex systems, managing biases, data-informed decision making, and digital transformation. Ongoing training of this kind can be a powerful tool for attracting, retaining, and improving high-performing employees and leaders.
