This new reality gives rise to formative requirements in all areas: science and health, media, business, management and leisure, among others.

In response to this new multidimensional sporting concept, the Real Madrid International School – Universidad Europea de Madrid was created in 2006.

An innovative and unique school created to prepare leading professionals in all the fields connected to the sporting world. This School's postgraduate programs are aimed at university graduates and professionals who want to succeed and develop a career in the sports sector .


The preparation activity of the Real Madrid International School – Universidad Europea de Madrid is based on three basic pillars:

"The School's international ambition has enabled it, in five years, to already have a presence in 10 Latin American countries, Africa, Asia and Europe."
  1. International Vocation
  2. Professional Approach
  3. Training Leaders


The School is created with a clear international focus, in the same way as the two institutions that back it: on the one hand Real Madrid C.F, which has gone from being a national club to being a world famous brand and, on the other hand, the Universidad Europea de Madrid, which belongs to the Laureate International Universities, a world leader in higher education, with more than 50 institutions in 24 countries and more than 600.000 students.

The School's international ambition has meant that, in five years, it already has a presence in 10 Latin American countries, Africa, Asia and Europe with more than 500 registered students and it aims to expand in to other countries.

On a day to day basis, the students undergo an internationalization process by way of the teachers and students from every continent, an innovative teaching methodology, the involvement of world-renowned companies in the extra-academic programmes and activities and the possibility of developing training modules in other venues worldwide.


The professional approach of the Real Madrid International School - Universidad Europea de Madrid marks the training line of each of the postgraduate courses.
