HA NOI (Biz Hub) – A ranking school official and an outstanding Vietnamese student will share their insights on The Minerva Project, an innovative educational experience, in seminars here and in HCM City.

Kenn Ross, Managing Director for Asia at The Minerva Project, will be in HCM City on August 16 and Ha Noi on August 17 and 18 to discuss Minerva and the future of higher education with students, parents, educators, and interested parties.

Minerva Schools at Keck Graduate Institute is a startup online for-profit university based in San Francisco, California.

Created using a model crafted by leading experts in American education, Minerva has been described as a re-imagined university experience designed to accelerate the life trajectories of the world's brightest and most motivated students by educating them to become global thinkers, innovators and leaders.

The unidentified student joining Ross at the seminars has earned the distinction of being one of 32 students, from 10 nations across five continents, in Minerva's Founding Class. The two will share their stories and ideas about Minerva and its implications for Vietnamese students.
