Global City Innovative College is a private college at the heart of Bonifacio Global City, Makati City / Taguig City Metro Manila. It began in 2002 when a group of entrepreneurs joined to establish the first collegiate education center in what was then the Fort Bonifacio Special Economic Zone. It is non-denominational, co-educational, and primarily serves the students in its area. Known as "the Yellow Building," the school is located along 31st Street at the corner of 2nd Avenue near Metro Manila's main thoroughfare, EDSA.

Course offerings include BS Nursing, BS Education, major in English, BS Business Administration, BS Hospitality Management and other Technical/ Vocational short courses. It is accredited by the Commission on Higher Education and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority.


The school has a central administration led by the college president Michael See Tan who oversees academic affairs, institutional development, community relations, international linkages and other operational concerns. Each of the five colleges are usually led by a dean, with the exception of the Technical/Vocational unit, which is led by a director who facilitates the short courses as mandated by TESDA.

In June 2008, the School of International Hospitality Management opened its course offering, Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management. Following the CHED-TESDA interface curriculum, the dean of the college, a BSHRM and MSBA-HRM graduate, spearheaded the design of lessons and training program presentation. The other seven terminal competencies with National Certificate Level II under TESDA are issued upon completion and passing the trade skills test.
