A place to belong

Though our scope is global, Knowledge Enterprise is headquartered in Arizona on ASU’s Tempe campus, and we’re proud to call the Valley of the Sun home. Three additional campuses — Downtown, Polytechnic and West — as well as a number of other locations comprise ASU’s footprint in the Phoenix area, with additional locations throughout the state. As one of the fastest growing urban areas in the U.S., the Phoenix metropolitan region enjoys sunshine year-round and is a great place to live, work and play, with diverse cuisine and ample opportunities for recreation and leisure.

But there’s more to ASU than just the Grand Canyon State — our reach extends throughout the U.S., with opportunities in Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and Hawaii. Learn more about ASU’s many locations.

Being a part of the KE team has been a tremendous experience and allows me to learn and strengthen the many facets of my skills in social media and communication."
