The Global College, the IB® international high school where students start their own businesses.

Global College is an international secondary school with boarding school in Madrid, which offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program® (IBDP) in English students aged 16 to 18 years. The IB Diploma Program offered at The Global College is rooted in the history and values ​​of University IEsuch as innovation, technology and entrepreneurship.

Thanks to its strategic alliance with the prestigious Spanish university, students at The Global College follow beyond their IB program, an entrepreneurship program led by the Center for Entrepreneurship at IE University, a university ranked number 1 in Europe in this field. Accompanied by experts, they must work on a project that allows them to develop skills such as teamwork, critical thinking, learning to test and validate their ideas, assessing the risks and benefits of their project, as well as its impact on society. In short, a real springboard to the business world for these students, many of whom have already set up their own start-up.

Students also benefit from a highly personalized program, support from academic tutors and advisors, and a curriculum focused on acquiring the skills needed for an ever-changing world.

This unique approach by The Global College prepares students from around the world for top universities. In addition to their academic tutor, each student has regular meetings with the director of the guidance department in order to better guide students according to their university and professional project. The aim of the “College”, in the British sense of the term, is for its students to enter the best universities in the world, whether in the United States, England, Europe or elsewhere. Strongly interested in these young people with an international profile and in search of new challenges, universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, New York University, Vanderbilt, Georgetown, among others, have already passed through the campus to introduce themselves. Impressed with the students’ profile, the University of Toronto even offered four scholarships.

The application period for the 2023 academic year is open. Last year, a very high number of files were received and a waiting list had to be opened very early.

In order to select the best students among candidates with a very international profile and fluent in several languages, in addition to English, the official language of the program, the admissions team regularly organizes admission days.

For external students, application forms must be submitted by January 31, 2023. Internal students have a little more time, although it is better to book in advance if you want the chance of getting a place at the boarding school because places available are limited, or opt for a scholarship.
