Minerva Schools prepare students to become innovators and global leaders in a wide variety of disciplines. Our aim is to reinvent higher education at every level, from how we equalize access to talented students from around the world to how we teach. All Minerva classes are seminars, not lecture courses, and use active learning to help students learn to think critically and creatively as well as to communicate and interact effectively with others. Students live together in residence halls, traveling to 7 different cities over their four undergraduate years of study. We teach using Forum, a web-based platform that supports real-time, synchronous seminars (ranging from 15-19 students) with high levels of student-faculty interaction. The majority of our students are undergraduates pursuing four-year degrees. We offer a Master of Science in Decision Analysis which we hope to scale over the upcoming few years and also develop other academic programs of study.

The Global Director, Marketing plays a critical role in leading the development and execution of marketing strategy and plans for Minerva Institute and its portfolio of program offerings through Minerva Schools at KGI. This role collaborates closely with the Global Director, Outreach to act as a leadership bridge across the Discovery Team, ensuring alignment across the teams in strategy, plans, and execution. Through initiatives to grow global awareness and inspire the appropriate audiences to apply and enroll in or partner with Minerva, the Global Director is responsible for achieving annual student matriculation targets.

This role is for someone who thrives in an entrepreneurial environment, likes to think out-of-the-box to solve challenges, and is motivated to deliver impressive results. We want someone who cares deeply about the future of higher education with a desire to build something lasting from scratch. The ideal candidate has deep brand, product, and higher education enrollment management knowledge to confidently lead a team to deliver effective marketing and communication plans that truly move the needle. You are a good fit for this position if you are excited about leading an unconventional and creative marketing team and attracted by the opportunity to radically innovate in higher education.
