"KGI merges business with science, which gives us a clear understanding of the industry and teaches us how to turn the research into real products. As a small school, students have close contact with professors that have experience and expertise in different biotech fields. KGI also offers huge opportunities and facilities to international students."

Admitted International Students

Some take the world as they find it. KGI students and graduates find ways to improve on it. KGI has devoted 20-plus years to the creation of new models of thinking and doing, rooted in technology, science, and entrepreneurial innovation. Models that incorporate the worlds of applied life sciences and healthcare education, revitalizing them through a unique approach that rewards students with something more than a degree: A clear path to success.

Our teaching emphasizes active learning, provides unprecedented access to industry, and never settles for the status quo. Innovation may be rooted in the past, but it drives unceasingly toward the future. Are you ready to take the next step?
