Preparing to succeed in an era of global uncertainty requires developing intellect, building character, and learning practical capabilities.
Your undergraduate education needs to be as multidimensional as you are. It should involve academic rigor, exposure to diverse global cultures, and enable you to develop the broad knowledge and practical skills needed to solve the most complex issues of our time.
Minerva students study in seven different cities (San Francisco, Taipei, Seoul, Hyderabad, Berlin, and London) alongside a small and diverse cohort of over 50 nationalities. Students attend seminar-style classes with no more than 18 peers, receive one of the most effective educations in the world designed by the science of learning, and gain the tools to become the leader of tomorrow.

Minerva University Reviews
Not to even mention the global rotation, which has been terrifying, beautiful, engaging, and an incredible life lesson.
Things to be aware of: small size means fewer choices for classes. No way to opt-out of requirements if you are ahead. Not a research university although a surprising amount of students go on to graduate school.
I would love to see the number of administrators grow to make things like financial aid, visas, and more go more smoothly. I would also like to see more research funding for students and professors as the university grows and becomes more financially independent.
