The Knowledge Exchange Institute (KEI) was founded in 1997 on the belief that study abroad should go beyond liberal arts education and cultural exchange to include discipline-specific studies and professional development.

From the beginning, KEI worked to develop affordable comprehensive programs that integrate courses, internships and cultural interaction. Our goal was, and continues to this day, to provide education abroad programs that allow students to complete major-specific and general education requirements, gain practical experience and enhance their understanding of the world through cultural and social immersion.
