    Keck Graduate Institute (KGI) Graduate Reviews

    15 reviews
    KGI has provided me with some of the best learning experiences of my life. In addition to emphasizing the importance of innovation in healthcare, the faculty/staff focus on inter-professional development. It is truly outstanding that this institution can provide such growth and promise to each student who walks in the door - which is polar opposite to larger public institutions. Each student is treated with the upmost respect and it is evident that each faculty/staff member genuinely cares about each student. For any person looking into any field in either healthcare or industry, please apply to KGI!

    Overall my experience at KGI was excellent! The MBS program gave me the knowledge and context of the life science industry to help me make an informed career decision after graduation. The professors and staff truly care for the students and only want everyone to succeed. Also, the school is very well connected with the industry which can only get stronger as the years go on with more and more amazing graduates exiting their programs and entering the work force.
    Very collaborative environment and the faculty really care about your success! The school sets you up to succeed in the job force and help you network. KGI faculty and advisors really care about your success and will guide you to find internships and jobs.
