Q1. What is the Minerva Training Institute training approach?
A: The Minerva Training experience is rigorous. At Minerva, we strive for both structured and informal peer learning opportunities — workshops, participant lectures, study groups, topic tables at meals, exercises and simulations, to name just a few. We also work to ensure that the people attending our courses are of comparable managerial and experience levels.

During evening study-group sessions, participants can exchange ideas and perspectives from the day are learning with their fellow participants.
