The global classroom is the training space for those who will transform the global future.

Alfonso Díaz Segura is Vice Chancellor for Internationalisation at the University CEU Cardenal Herrera in Spain. He is responsible for international policies at the University and has implemented the Global Classroom, a framework of initiatives that allow students to acquire soft skills in internationalisation, regardless of where they come from and which degree they are studying. Therefore the international experience permeates all the layers at the institution, from teachers to staff, focusing on the students. Starting in 2019, COIL projects can be found in all the faculties and currently the challenge is to expand the offer with mirrored classes, guest lectures, or international weeks in every degree. Alfonso studied Architecture and has a PhD in Architectural Projects, combining for years both the professional and the academic activity. He also has an MBA. In 2020, he joined the Expert Community Internationalisation at Home as an Associate.
