Academic year in which the course was first offered
Year 2011/12


The Graduate School follows a teaching model based on academic excellence, daily practice and commitment to new technology, and this has been recognized by the most prestigious quality certifications.


The creation of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) means that university degree programs in every country in Europe guarantee equivalent academic programs, including immediate recognition of PhDs and Master's Degrees (professional and specialist) anywhere in Europe, mobility between countries and lifelong learning.


The School also offers Master's Degrees and Certificate Courses, Universidad Europea private degrees adapted to the specific needs of the world of work, for perfecting professional skills.


Students are given personalized classes in small groups and complete their learning with the support of a mentor, enabling them to get the most from their training and develop their full potential.


Our commitment to our students does not end when they graduate. Through Alumni, former Postgraduate School students can keep up to date with everything Universidad Europea continues to offer them as a professional partner: job offers, special training, conferences, networking events, etc.


The Universidad Europea de Madrid has designed its Internal Quality Assurance System according to the directives of Spain's National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation (ANECA), as a structural basis to ensure the quality of the new accredited degrees, in line with the quality directives of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and Organic Law 4/2007, of 12 April, amending Organic Law 6/2001, of 21 December, on Universities.

Quality Assurance System (SGIC)


NetUEM: The aim of the Universidad Europea de Madrid is to boost the use of information and communication technologies on all its degree programs as a means of supporting and complementing teaching practice. The use of a Virtual Campus, developed on the Moodle platform as a complementary tool for working, increases the options for distributing knowledge and for communications between students and professors, making it easier to provide personalized attention and monitoring through virtual tutoring sessions, encouraging independent learning, enhancing student skills such as searching for and organizing information, planning and the capacity for debate.

The Online Campus is integrated into the UEM's academic management system, which means that all teachers who have uploaded courses to it have automatic access to a virtual space on the Moodle platform associated with each course. Also, every student enrolled in a degree program will be linked in with the courses they have signed up for on the Online Campus.

Using the Online Campus to provide students with documents in electronic format, to enable students to submit assignments in an organized and timely manner, to communicate with students on a particular course in a fast and efficient way and to carry out individual and group tasks (wikis, forums, chats, queries, etc.), enables teachers to perform their role in a fast and dynamic way and to establish an alternative means of communicating with students outside the classroom.

Throughout this process, teachers are provided with institutional support, with access to class-based and online training courses. Each faculty also has a mentor who can advise and help teachers with matters such as technical aspects of using the platform and adapting their subject matter to the virtual environment.

During their time in Madrid, students can use the classrooms, computer rooms and auditorium of the Alcobendas campus.

As well as the classrooms and lecture halls, there are meeting rooms for independent and group work and a computer room which is available for students to use at any time during campus working hours.

This cutting-edge campus, on a 13,000 square meter plot, has a capacity of 3,000 people and is equipped with the latest technology applied to the transmission of ideas and knowledge, in an exceptional location:

  • The nerve center of the North Madrid Business Park, one of the most strategically important business areas in Spain, and undoubtedly a major source of employment in the near future.
  • It has excellent road links to the center of Madrid (just a 15 minute drive from Plaza de Castilla) and to Barajas Airport (13 minutes way), and plenty of parking space.
  • Directly connections to public transport services (Madrid – Plaza Castilla, Alcobendas and San Sebastián de los Reyes)

The course also has access to the infrastructure of the other campuses of Universidad Europea de Madrid, which are described below.

The laboratories are equipped with the instruments and IT equipment needed to meet the demands associated with each of the practical objectives of each training program.

One of the main learning tools is the UEM Lab, equipped with an advanced multimedia system that enables students to quickly improve their English language skills and allows for personalized monitoring of students' progress, which is complemented with classroom lessons, tutorials and complementary activities. Students also have access to a wide range of extracurricular English language activities which are offered periodically over the course of the academic year.

  • The involvement of professionals from Real Madrid, who are leaders in their field. During "White Week" they will have sessions at the Club's facilities (Santiago Bernabéu Stadium and Ciudad Deportiva) with the top executives of Real Madrid.
