    In recent years, sport has become a discipline that has expanded beyond its previously defined boundaries, thus increasing the need for specialized professionals in the various areas associated with the world of sport and sports organizations. The MBA - Master’s Degree in Sports Management is taught 100% in English and provides specific training in the field of sports management.

    This MBA primarily consists of ten modules on company management, followed by a cross disciplinary module on management skills.

    The program contains a segment that specializes in sports and focuses on marketing, management and the operation of sports facilities.

    The international nature of this program will enable students and sports managers to obtain the broadest possible perspective on all existing sports management models, not only in Spain but also beyond our borders, thanks to the participation of a top-class international faculty. This educational commitment will exponentially improve the scope and professional possibilities of our students.

    The MBA Master’s degree in Sports Management combines a unique exposure to Real Madrid, academic excellence, real practical cases and a vast network of contacts in the sports industry.

    During the program, students will come into contact with all the areas in the city where Real Madrid is present (facilities, sporting venues, organizational and management institutions, etc.), as well as with the Fundación Real Madrid. And that’s not all; students will also gain firsthand insight into other facilities and management models through visits to Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, Ciudad Deportiva Real Madrid (Real Madrid Training Complex), Ciudad del Fútbol de la RFEF (Soccer City of the Royal Spanish Football Federation), Caja Mágica (Madrid Open Tennis Stadium), Palacio de los Deportes (Indoor Sports Arena), and other spaces intended for leisure and entertainment run by both public and private organizations.

    Students may participate in a trip to New York City with other students of the Real Madrid Graduate School. The trip will include visits to the headquarters of important sports leagues such as NBA, MLS, and NHL, major venues like Madison Square Garden, and marketing companies such as Octagon.

    This is one of the best experiences a Sports Management student can have, both from a managerial and an operational viewpoint, since they will receive hands-on learning and apply the knowledge they have gained throughout their studies.

    Student profile

    To be accepted onto the Master's degree, students must have an official degree issued by a Spanish institute or a higher education institute in the European Higher Education Area, which allows access to Master's programmes in the country of issuance.

    A holder of a degree from outside the EHEA system may also be accepted, without the need for official recognition of his or her degree, after the university has verified that such qualification accredits a level of training equivalent to that of the corresponding official Spanish degree and that it allows the holder to access postgraduate education in the country of issuance.

    The recommended applicant profile is that of holders of degrees in physical activity and sport sciences (particularly those focussed on sports management) and degrees in fields related to business or international management.

    The Master's degree aims to train management cadres in the sports world. It is particularly geared towards graduates who want to have a career in sports management. It is also geared towards professionals in the sector who want to update their knowledge, professionals in other sectors who want to cross over into the sports world, and towards professional athletes who aspire to continue their activity in the sports area as managers.

    “Our MBA professors brought us closer to the industry and to their professional network so that we would have more tools to find our way to break into the industry, and the academic trip to New York was simply amazing.”

    Joel Santos
    ’13 SMBA alumnus and class representative

    “The MBA stands out for its academic quality and top level professors. It gave me the chance to combine everything I learned in a realistic and modern environment. The quality of the teaching is extraordinary” 
    David Belenguer.
    Ex-captain of Getafe CF. Graduate of the “Alfredo Di Stéfano” MBA – Master’s Degree in Sports Management

    Internationality

    An international outlook is part of the educational model of Universidad Europea de Madrid, in line with the philosophy of the European Higher Education Area and the demands of modern society, which has been revolutionized by globalization and internationalization. These two phenomena mean that any future graduate must be able to work in multicultural environments, and respect and adapt to the social conventions inherent to other cultures.

    The Universidad Europea de Madrid belongs to the Laureate Education Inc. Network of International Universities and Graduate Training Centers.

    It also has Erasmus exchange agreements with a total of 177 European universities with places for 1104 students. UEM students can choose to move within the Laureate network or through the special agreements between UEM and certain universities in English-speaking countries.

    Traditionally, and in previous editions of other UEM Master's Degrees, a certain number of students are from other countries.  The Universidad Europea de Madrid has a student reception procedure to facilitate the movement of students inside and outside the Laureate Network.

    ORGANIZING THE MOBILITY OF FOREIGN STUDENTS

    Before international students arrive, they are provided with guidance by email or telephone. This guidance consists of providing information on the Spanish education system, the educational model of the university, aspects relating to academic formalities (subjects, credits, class schedules, etc.), and information about the city, accommodation options, transport, health care services, culture, etc. (in Spanish and English).

    After foreign students have completed the academic formalities, they are welcomed to the university with special information sessions and a guided tour of the campus.

    Academic support for these students is provided by the advisor, a professor who assists and guides them in all aspects of the learning program.

    To encourage the fullest possible academic and cultural integration of these students, Spanish courses are offered in collaboration with the Cervantes Institute (with the option of obtaining the DELE Diploma in Spanish as a Foreign Language), free courses on the Spanish educational model, and the opportunity to attend many cultural and sports activities.

    PREPARING AND MONITORING AGREEMENTS

    The International Relations Office holds regular meetings with the international heads of the different degree programs in order to prepare new agreements or increase student exchange places at the requested destinations. It also informs academic managers about universities expressing an interest in exchange agreements. The office is responsible for establishing contact with academic managers in foreign universities in order to sign agreements, define the number of places, and exchange information on the places, procedures and characteristics of the university.

More specifically, 70% work in a new job and the remaining 10% had set up their own company.
