The Global College is one of the newest IB schools in Madrid set to welcome its first batch of students in September 2022. The Global College is a co-educational day and boarding school for 15 to 18-year-olds, offering an innovative IB Diploma Programme, anchored in the history and values of IE University. The college is right in the heart of Madrid in the Charmatin district within walking distance of Madrid’s UNESCO-recognised Retiro park.
“At The Global College, we offer a personalised education, built around the International Baccalaureate, so that all students can achieve their full potential, preparing them for access to leading universities worldwide. Our curriculum is designed to provide coherence, balance and breadth, generating an appetite for learning and discovery in our students. Providing solid academics is not the only goal of our College. We encourage our students to develop a strong cultural and environmental awareness, a responsibility to the international community, as well as a capacity for teamwork, collaboration and leadership.
The future working environment will be global, digital and enterprising, with technology creating new jobs that don’t exist yet. Students, therefore, need to be creative, resilient, entrepreneurial and open-minded.” Diego del Alcázar Benjumea, The Global College Co-Founder
