The topics are structured into modules as follows:

  • 25% initial theory (general concepts)
  • 50% theoretical-practical development
  • 25% case study practice


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.
