Under the visionary leadership of Managing Director Antonio Rodriguez, the Institution has forged a path that integrates cutting-edge practices, diverse global perspectives, and a firm commitment to fostering innovation across multiple dimensions.

Believing that education should be aligned with the dynamic demands of the industry, the School has continuously evolved its program portfolio to encapsulate the latest trends and market needs. This unique approach ensures that students are equipped with skills and knowledge that translate directly into real-world success.

Innovation within our program portfolio is paramount, notes Rodriguez. We strive to be at the forefront of educational trends, preparing our students for the challenges and opportunities of the future.

GBSB Global’s innovative efforts have garnered recognition and support, including acknowledgement from the Catalan government and the administration of the European Social Fund to support student initiatives.

In addition, GBSB Global has carved a niche for itself by driving innovation through entrepreneurial projects. The Institution’s startup accelerator program nurtures students’ entrepreneurial spirit and promotes projects that incorporate social impact, digital business, and circular economy perspectives. We are excited to support projects that align with these axes and foster a new generation of socially conscious and technologically savvy entrepreneurs, says Rodriguez.

The Institution’s embrace of technology reflects its commitment to innovation. GBSB Global utilizes advanced digital tools, including a fully online library and a Microsoft-powered learning experience. We are constantly adapting to technological advances in order to provide our students with an exceptional learning experience, notes Antonio Rodriguez. This commitment has led to the school being recognized by Microsoft as a Showcase Business School.

As Antonio Rodriguez points out, there are three key factors that set GBSB Global apart from other educational institutions: an immersive learning experience, an exceptional level of diversity among students and faculty, and an unwavering focus on employability.

  1. Student Learning Experience    

Olga Ivanova, the Institution’s Head of Program Development and Innovation, has led groundbreaking research in higher education. Her work culminated in the creation of a revolutionary framework that identifies key competencies essential for graduates to drive innovation in diverse professional settings.

We have scientifically proven that we can measure the growth of students’ innovation skills from the time they enter the School until they graduate, explains Rodriguez. This groundbreaking research ensures that GBSB Global students are well-equipped to be catalysts for innovation, whether in corporate environments or startups.

  1. High level of diversity    

The School’s commitment to diversity is also evident in its global touch, which embraces a rich tapestry of cultures. Our classrooms are enriched by the presence of students from some 90 to 100 different nationalities, Rodriguez points out.

This diversity ensures that students are exposed to a variety of problem-solving approaches and cultural perspectives, which enhances their overall learning experience.

  1. Employability orientation    

The Institution is further distinguished by its employability focus. GBSB Global combines theoretical knowledge with industry experience, providing students with a holistic understanding of the professional landscape. The Institution’s robust network of industry connections facilitates internship opportunities and job placements, ensuring that students have a seamless transition into the workforce. To achieve this goal, GBSB Global consistently strives to clarify students’ career goals, assess their progress, and create a professional strategy.

Moving forward

GBSB Global remains firmly committed to innovation and growth. Future academic plans include continuous program updates, pedagogical innovation, academic excellence, technology integration, and a new doctoral program, underscoring the School’s commitment to educating innovative global leaders.

As the educational landscape continues to evolve, the School’s faculty remains steadfast in its mission to equip students with the skills and mindset needed to drive innovation in the global economy. Through visionary leadership, research-driven approaches, and a commitment to excellence, GBSB Global continues to redefine higher education for the postmodern world.
