What is Knowmads

What is Knowmads

Apparently, it’s impossible to explain what we do at Knowmads Business School – let alone put it on paper. Even less likely are you to succeed in trying to put it on one sheet of paper.
At Knowmads, ‘the impossible’ doesn’t scare us; it motivates us to try harder.

The students are a highly motivated bunch of unique characters from very diverse backgrounds and countries, each with their personal skills and talents. When I say ‘diverse’ I mean really diverse. Backgrounds ranging from an officer in the Israeli army to a (ex-)fashion student or a BSc International Business. We even have a Medical Doctor (don’t tell him I said that!).
What we have in common though is the strong believe that we can change the world for the better. We believe in taking responsibility for our actions, changing what bothers you, and an overall positive attitude. Want to change the world? Do it. Knowmads offers you the tools. You just have to reach out and grab them. Every one of us feels that following ‘the regular path’ is not for us. It’s not that we are particularly against the current educational system or societal expectations; it’s just that we believe our system at Knowmads works better for us.

Our system? Yes, our system. As students we design our own curriculum throughout the year. We run the school. We make the decisions and we execute them. What this boils down to is that there are no teachers, ‘bosses’ or even cleaners. We are assisted by a great team of staff who not only helps us with the day-to-day tasks of running the school (administration, etc.) but more importantly guide us on our personal development path. We see them as peers, mentors, coaches and friends.

Now you may wonder what the programme looks like. It totally depends. During the week we usually have a combination of workshops, lectures, time to reflect and time to work on projects. There’s also a tribal weekend (three time per year) , a nature quest, multiple-day workshops, and much more. All-in-all it is what you make it, but comprehensive, informative and fun for sure.

Many of us work on different projects. This can be anything you choose to work on. Perhaps your own business or perhaps an assignment from outside. Companies are very interested in the creative spirit at Knowmads; they love co-creating with us.
