About the program

The sports sector is growing exponentially all over the world. It is also a hugely global industry.

There is a double connection between sports and the world of marketing and sales. On the one hand, there are an increasing number of companies whose business relates to sports, and which need an in-depth understanding of the right marketing and sales tools to achieve success in their competitive environment; and on the other hand, sports are by nature an excellent communications platform for companies in any economic sector, thanks to their extraordinary reach in the media and the values they transmit, and they can provide great added value to any company or brand associated with them.

The Master’s Degree in Sports Marketing, offered by Real Madrid Graduate School and Universidad Europea, is a pioneering international program in the field of sports marketing, designed to give international or Spanish students with a global and multicultural outlook the training they need to take advantage of professional opportunities in the combined fields of marketing and sports.

Sportafolio
The master experience allowed me to enhance my knowledge about the sports industry and build a solid international network with my classmates and professional contacts. Finally I was able to apply all this values back to my country, founded my first company (Sportafolio,com) and be part of the first professional league in Peru.
