Real Madrid Graduate School
In 2006 Real Madrid C.F.and Universidad Europea de Madrid created the first University School specialized in sports and its relationship with management, health, communications and leisure/recreation. 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 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.
Masters Sports Exercise and Physiotherapy
The “complexity and range” of the Physiotherapy profession has grown beyond the limits of general Practice. Continuous professional development is now essential in order to guarantee a quality service and has become a professional responsibility.
This Master’s aims to provide specialist training in physiotherapeutic needs and recovery of function in the world of sports competitions, both for elite athletes and beginners.
In their professional practice, an expert physiotherapist has to be, from a scientific perspective, flexible and capableof adapting to all sorts of changes. They also need to be prepared to survive in the complex world of healthcare and take the reins of their own professional development. Consequently, this program is an opportunity to further specialise in sports as an area of professional development.
The training will be oriented towards providing efficient and effective healthcare, given that therapies are carried out with the aim of benefitting the patient and delivering results.
There is currently a high demand for labour in the sports physiotherapy market, as we are facing an increase in healthcare and sports practice. There is an ever-increasing culture of preventing and treating injuries caused by physical activity. As a result, this specialist course is taught in English to cover the existing need for physiotherapists who want to specialise in sports and also be able to work in English, thereby increasing the opportunities available to them as professionals. Graduates will be able to provide services to athletes who do not speak Spanish and increase their ability to get work from other countries in Europe, America and Asia, where demand is growing for physiotherapists who have trained and gained experience in Spain.
