Your education begins today. By qualifying for the program through a series of aptitude exams which measure your fit for the KIVER path, you also gain your first college credit towards your degree.
Your admission course, Developing Effective Teams, will prepare you to be a leader in your industry. Whether you're on the ground managing a multi-billion dollar construction project or in the lab discovering new ways to cure cancer. Your leadership abilities will shine as you delicately maneuver through the fine details of developing a team which delivers consistent qualitative results.
The first 12 weeks are dedicated to completing your general education requirements which are required to graduate from every Bachelor's degree program in the U.S.
Prepare to study courses ranging from Microeconomics to Government and Science, while strengthening your core educational foundation.
Here are some courses from the curriculum

You choose two concentrations which will shape the course of your studies and eventually your thesis. Each concentration is a mix of both lower and higher level classes. Here are some popular areas you can choose to focus in:

The last weeks of the program can be accelerated through a series of language exams for students that posses fluency in a second language or through creating a portfolio which demonstrates proficiency in an industry skill. All other students are welcome to take a variety of other courses which suit their individual interests and future professional goals.

After you've completed 105 credits towards your degree you can begin working on your capstone. Here are some informational gems about the capstone:
- It's heavily based on one of your two concentration areas which you completed in week 13-22.
- It can take up to eight weeks to complete and you correspond with your professor for the capstone project virtually.
- You'll be writing extensively about ethical dilemmas which require you to weigh multiple perspectives for an issue or a problem that has no clear right or wrong.
