Real Madrid Graduate School and University of Applied Sciences Europe offer a double degree in International Sport & Events Management (MBA in Sports Management). Learning from the best professionals of Real Madrid and best academics from UE is key to ensure the success of this unique program. As a highlight, students have the opportunity to be part of the Real Madrid Graduate School’s Graduation ceremony alongside more than 450 students of all on-campus programs.
The Real Madrid Graduate School – Universidad Europea extends beyond the boundaries of sports by training professional leaders in all the disciplines that are associated, one way or another, with this area. The graduate programs focus on different areas and are designed for university graduates and working professionals from the different sectors linked to both professional and amateur sports.
The school was created with a strong international component, just like the two institutions that back it. On one side there is Real Madrid Football Club, which took a Spanish company and made it into a leading international force; on the other is Universidad Europea de Madrid, a member of Laureate International Universities, a world leader in advanced education.
The guiding educational principle behind each of the graduate degrees of the Real Madrid International Professional School is a professional focus. The design and implementation of these programs is carried out by professionals from both Real Madrid as well as Universidad Europea de Madrid, highly prestiged in their respective fields.
With the goal of providing a practical education, the graduate programs are taught in state-of-the-art facilities: the Real Madrid facilities at its brand new Sports City and Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, as well as Universidad Europea de Madrid’s campuses in Alcobendas (Madrid) and Villaviciosa de Odón (Madrid). In addition, most of the graduate programs include visits to companies or to events related to the curriculum, such as the All England Club where the famous Wimbledon Grand Slam takes place, in the case of the Alfredo Di Stefano MBA in Sports Management.
The main skills required for sport, event, and marketing management are the ability to communicate, to think in an interdisciplinary way, and to lead a team. In addition, International Sport Management is geared toward leadership roles in sport, while International Event Management focuses on planning and organizational roles. International Marketing Management complements these two subject areas.
To reinforce the vocational focus, the program was developed in conjunction with experts from Ernst & Young (SCORE – Sports Consulting) and experts from Real Madrid, with the involvement of communication agencies. You are thus equipped with in-depth knowledge and practical experience to embark on your career.
In order to prepare you further for the tasks of managing companies operating globally, an International Experience is integrated into your studies. To complete the International Experience sucessfully one can choose between different elements on a mudular principle, which could be in the form of a Summer / Winter School, a semester abroad, an internship or student emplyee scheme.

However, preparation and follow-up work need to be taken into account, since this is a full-time study course by curriculum.
