Welcome our first graduates from Madrid Campus!

Meet the Class of 2021

Our Madrid Campus recently hosted a celebratory dinner for the first graduating cohort since our second Spanish campus in Madrid opened its doors in 2018.

Congratulations to all of the students that have just finished their final semester with us, we can't wait to celebrate with you at your Graduation Ceremony in October!


I’ve met contacts from around the world in an international city, I have been able to launch my own start up in Madrid all thanks to Geneva Business School and for that I am eternally grateful.” - Jim Van Vught, Bachelor of International Management (Sports Management)



Here are some of the Class of 2021 students recalling their highlights of their time studying at Geneva Business School in Madrid:


“I met incredible people during my time studying on the Madrid campus, what made the experience greater is that the Madrid community was a family at the beginning which started out with 17 people” - Liya Khazigaleeva, Bachelor of International Management (Entrepreneurship) and president of the first Madrid student council


“I loved the school at the start, we were just 17 students and the campus had just opened. We saw students grow as well as the campus grow. It started with 3 staff members in a small campus and now we’re in this huge nice campus that we have and all the different teachers that we have.

New students are always joining and even with the online students we still managed to keep that family feeling. The staff truly know and really care for all the students and try to help them as much as they can and it’s an unforgettable experience.” - Wassime El Makhoud, Bachelor of International Management (International Management)

“One of the best memories I have of studying on the Madrid Campus is that it feels like a family, you get to know everyone, make jokes and have a good time with everyone - even the instructors!” - Rigoberto Cruz, Bachelor of International Management (International Management) and vice-president of the student council

“Enjoy your experience at Geneva Business School, learn from all the instructors here and listen to all of their experiences and go out and start your own venture or business with the support of the school.” - Jim Van Vught

Advice for new students starting in Madrid:

“Get involved with the activities organized by the student council, remember that you’re here to study but also have fun because the three years will pass by so fast.” - Liya Khazigaleeva
