When universities were set up about a century ago, scholars established the primary purpose of these institutions was to teach wisdom and enlightenment to the students. At the time exclusively for a select group of the elite and wealthy. As we hop onto the time train and reach modern times, that primary purpose has several sub-purposes branched out. Today, an institution’s primary purpose is to provide wisdom and education; but also to shape a canvas of a clear mind into something magical. To provide a diverse, warm, and welcoming environment where a student can be nurtured into utmost growth.
Two of the most essential purposes of higher education are students’ character development and their preparation for real-life demands. One could argue that they should already be established before enrolling in college. Still, the education systems at pre-university levels need to provide students with the chance to learn about themselves and experience continuous character development.
Headquartered in Malta, Global College Malta is one of the most prominent and cutting-edge private institutions in the Mediterranean region. The institution is famous for providing outstanding, post-graduate, and undergraduate programs. The goal of comprehensive, top-notch education and cross-disciplinary curricula is to get students ready for a fulfilling and highly gratifying job.

A Walk Through The Campus
Global College Malta being true to the “global” in their name, has students from all over. Making the campus a vibrant rainbow of ethnicities, backgrounds, attitudes, and approaches. The College is committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment where all people feel supported and valued, enabling them not only to succeed but also thrive. For its international students, numerous celebrations rejoice. For various regional festivals and other events that hold importance to the students from their respective roots. This creates perfect cohesion among students as well as provides glimpses of cultural diversity.
A student is faced with numerous challenges as they embark on their college or uni journey. Students must devote their complete attention to university life. The students should always review the course syllabus, maintain their confidence, and examine the various assignment forms. On top of that, adjusting themselves to the campus and between their peers puts even more pressure on these minds. What they need during such crucial starting days and even later is a campus that is warm and welcoming.
At GCM, every student is looked at individually, and not just as a part of the crowd. Every student holds a special value and worth in the eyes of the institution and their problems are heard always.
Apart From Academics
You can’t bring vibrance to a painting with the same 2 colors in your palette. Academia makes up a major chunk of a student’s college life, but what about the other little but essential chunks? That’s when extracurricular activities step in. As a college with students from various countries and cultures, GCM has an abundance of planned celebration days where they rejoice and be proud of each other’s roots.
The college sees this as an opportunity for students to be exposed to cultures. These experiences inculcate values of adaptability in a student which is essential in today’s globalized world. Celebrating festivals and occasions of various countries not only helps educate students about cultures they probably haven’t heard about but also promotes the concept of
“Unity in Diversity.”
“Local Cuisine Day” is one of the many days where students join hands as a community. On this particular day, students enjoy meals from different countries and cultures. Throughout the year, extracurricular activities like this are promoted, practiced, and preached to the students.
Facing The Outside World After GCM
A highly educated staff gives companies a competitive advantage in today’s business environment. Employees with education, particularly those in the subject of business education, aid companies in operating more efficiently. Some may even discover new or improved methods of producing goods and services. Employees with strong business backgrounds offer organizations, valuable internal managerial candidates, allowing organizations to advance internal workers instead of engaging in costly and time-consuming manager recruitment efforts.
After graduating from Global College Malta, our students are working as CEOs, COOs’, Executive Directors, Business Development Managers, Operations Managers, Retail Heads,
and Business heads with leading private and public entities across Europe & Asia.
“At GCM, we emphasize equally practical & theoretical knowledge so our pedagogy is more biased towards experiential learning. Most of our faculty members are accomplished business leaders in their domain thus they carry years of enriching business experience to be shared with students.”
Business cannot be taught solely in the classroom for very obvious reasons, so the pedagogy includes visits to businesses, group discussions, case studies, business simulations, participation in business forums, business talks from industry leaders, learning about technological advancement in a business environment, etc.
All of the courses are up-to-date, industry-relevant, and actively promote critical thinking, creativity, problem-solving, and a positive reflection of the most recent trends and technology required to meet the demands of shifting global environments and markets.
Future Plans And Programs
Global College Malta has nearly ten years of experience in Malta, has a well-deserved reputation for excellent quality, and has solid and established ties with the local business community. With their courses in Business, Finance, and so on, many of their graduates have gone on to have highly successful jobs in Maltese and worldwide organizations.
