Welcome to King’s College!
As you embark on your educational, personal and professional growth, we’re happy to share what we have in store for you at King’s College.
As an educational institution, we work to remove the walls between communities and classrooms. We weave the knowledge and wisdom of the real world with academic education. Leading and supporting the innovation of innovative communities, our vision is to build an education ecosystem where communities, industries, students and educators come together in the learning environment to bring entrepreneurial mindset, co-creation and co-learning to action.
In short, we make learning “real and relevant” - beyond books, classrooms and exams that develop an entrepreneurial mindset. To engage you in this fun, engaging and challenging learning, we offer you a range of interdisciplinary programs:
These programs are internationally affiliated - our courses are affiliated to Westcliff University, California, US. These are approved by the Ministry of Education, Government of Nepal and also recognized by Tribhuvan University, Nepal. The programs are ACBSP and WASC accredited.
Our well stocked on-site and digital libraries have sufficient books along with dozens of national and international journals including a rich collection of 1000+ reputed titles and periodicals.
As a part of your academic programs, you will also have the choice of joining a number of continually developed and updated professional development modules that will help you enhance your professional and employability skills. We have industry experts develop these modules on basis of the skills and aptitudes that employers and the professional world most seeks out. Keeping in mind real and relevant learning, we keep these modules relevant to your interests - for example, students taking MBA Entrepreneurship will also take modules on startup valuation, networking and human centered design that help them relate learnings to their own startups.
Your experience at King’s College will of course, not only be limited to academics. For this, you will always find a safe and engaging space for you to pursue your interests and passions at the campus. We have established a number of “Centers” over the years that lead projects in various areas including student engagement, education innovation, knowledge creation, community & industry engagement and entrepreneurship.
King’s Incubator can help you in your journey to become an entrepreneur. The center supports aspiring entrepreneurs through training, mentoring, networking and seed-fund. Even entrepreneurs outside King’s College can participate in the Incubator’s programs. The center has helped incubate over 43 ventures, created over 198 jobs and supported over 1000 jobs.
Empowerment Academy, as a communication and empowerment wing, organizes a number of workshops and trainings on writing, presentation, designing and storytelling to help you grow in collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking skills. In addition to this, EA works continuously to innovate in educational practices and conducts teacher trainings that help advance your learning experience.
DoLAB merges education, design and entrepreneurship to make learning, innovation and growth hands-on. The center develops and runs design thinking courses for students from King’s as well as beyond King’s. DoLAB’s processes are based on the LAB Studio Model developed by OamkLABS at the Oulu University of Applied Sciences (OAMK) in Finland.
Demola is an international innovation challenge platform, which works to bridge the long-existing gap between companies and university students. Demola Global, established in Tampere, Finland, brings a team of multidisciplinary university students and company’s experts to work together and co-create a solution for an innovation challenge set by the company.
Center for Research and Development (CERAD) is an autonomous research wing at King’s College. CERAD undertakes research, develops academic case studies, conducts research training, and other research-related activities within and beyond King’s College.

Growth & Innovation Studies uncovers growth stories of informal and formal ventures including small and medium enterprises, startups, and corporates. The studies explore local innovations and disseminate the learnings to a wide range of audience including students, policymakers, professionals, and business leaders. GIS has been collaborating with CERAD to develop academic case studies for educators, within and beyond King’s College to bring you real world and local knowledge and cases into your learning spaces.
The Center for Professional Development at King’s works to make meaningful connections between the students at King’s and the industries they work in. The Insight Series, for example, brings the richness of knowledge and experience from notable industry professionals into learning spaces for students through interactions.

By placing the community at the center of the learning process, CSLP facilitates the service-learning projects of the students, helping them immerse meaningfully in their communities while critically analyzing communities’ issues from a wide range of perspectives and conceptualizing entrepreneurial solutions to those issues. Some notable service learning projects include supporting community schools as teachers, door-to-door canvassing about various social issues and assessing gender equality and social inclusion at King’s College, among others.
