Welcome to Infinite Spur

Infinite Spur was founded as a way to respond to the current educational demands that call for an innovative approach of teaching and learning in an international setting by fostering new forms of dialogue between the arts and technology, leadership and entrepreneurship.

Our programs are designed for students who are ready to take on new challenges, who are ready to participate in dynamic and intensive educational abroad experience where, in addition to learning about the culture and the people, they will gain the necessary personal and professional skills that will empower them to design their own professional future.

Talking of Infinite Spur is referring to one of the world´s greatest Alpine challenges. The beautiful and apparently harmless icy ridge that leads to the Summit of Mount Foraker in Alaska is, however, one of the most impregnable, deceiving and challenging walls only conquered by a few experts mountaineers. The conquest of this mythical summit takes personal determination, commitment, endurance and team work. Surmounting the top is an extraordinary task and a great satisfaction. For those few who have made it, their live has never been the same.

Our dreams are somehow similar; apparently innocent but most unconquerable. To accomplish our dreams we need determination, commitment, trust, strength and persistence. Only those who are willing to strive, to commit, to continue working towards their goals despite the difficulties, will be able to achieve them.

You can be one of them.

To provide students with knowledge and professional and inter-cultural skills to successfully achieve their goals and dreams through immersive international EDUCATIONAL experiences FOCUSED on leadership, entrepreneurship, arts, technology and design

Our programs integrate technology and design with the study of the arts, history and culture of Spain in the contemporary European context. The technological approach to the humanities and to the cultural heritage of Spain is designed to maximize learning by taking advantage of students’ familiarity and understanding of digital technologies.

Courses offer participants an international pre-professional immersion experience in different fields of the arts, technology and design to explore their future professional careers paths. We believe it is crucial to support students by empowering them as leaders and entrepreneurs.

Courses will take place in January, May, June and July.

Course sites: Madrid, Barcelona and Malaga.

  • We believe in the capacity of students to fulfill their dreams and aspirations by arming them with tools and skills for personal and professional empowerment to achieve their goals.

  • We believe that personal responsibility and integrity are essential for professional success. We encourage our students to be responsible for their choices and entrust them to design their own learning experiences and processes.

  • We believe that creativity must be applied to all academic disciplines. Creativity is a social process in which every member of a team contributes their best ideas and talents toward the solution of a problem. We encourage to develop the inter-personal and inter-cultural attitudes and skills for effective interdisciplinary team-work.

  • We believe that the interdisciplinary dialogue between the humanities and new digital and virtual technologies is essential for the preservation and transmission of art, history, and culture and for the search for global solutions in our contemporary technological age.

  • We believe that it is vital to empower the next generation of global leaders with the knowledge, empathy, and real-world practical experiences and perspectives to address the global and local challenges facing our contemporary interconnected and globalized world.
