is a life changing experience, school and platform for people who make a positive difference in the world.


At Knowmads Business School, we educate young creative entrepreneurial spirits in a 6 month program that challenges students to create their own education and projects. We are a platform for people who want to make a positive difference in the world. We believe it is our job to enable, facilitate, empower and inspire our students to become change makers.

Our program is designed to take you on an inspirational learning journey. The first 3 months focus on you, your impact on others, your strengths, your views and your ambitions. The second 3 months are about your impact, developing ideas, making action plans and turning your dreams into reality.
We see our program as an offer to invite our students into a dynamic creation process that includes individual learning wishes, collective needs and our suggestions of methods and ideas.

Spud’s Thoughts:

The program I did in Sweden was a member of an unofficial network of radical higher ed orgs in Europe. Knowmads was another one of those programs and I love the program. I’m friends with one of the folks who helped shape the curriculum and organization and have a lot of respect for his approach and philosophy towards education – definitely check this one out if you are looking for something truly unique!
