Letter from the Rector

Welcome to Universidad Europea.

Letter from the Rector

Our students today are the professionals of the future. At Universidad Europea we are aware of the needs of the current environment and we prepare these young people so that they are able to lead change in a hyperconnected society under constant change. Change that is only possible in an international, interdisciplinary environment such as at our campus, and which allows students to immerse themselves in the professional world that awaits them from day one.

At Universidad Europea we offer an education that is open to the world, innovative, international and multicultural. In short, a dynamic education with a spirit of constant improvement that is also present in our campus and among our faculty. As Rector of the Universidad Europea, heading up this project allows me to be at the cutting edge of academic quality and take on the challenge that involves understanding, from a comprehensive perspective, how this great institution works in order to educate the best. I take on this challenge with the satisfaction of representing a unique academic community, with a faculty of renowned prestige, whose greatest value is excellence.

"We have a unique, innovative educational model, focused on making the most of student potential, commitment and exactitude, and measuring and continuously improving educational excellence"


Juan Morote, Rector of the Universidad Europea de Madrid

We have a unique, innovative educational model, focused on making the most of student potential, commitment and exactitude, and measuring and continuously improving educational excellence. An educational model that goes beyond the traditional approach to foster the development of competences and skills. An education dedicated to personal and professional capacities such as leadership, entrepreneurship, teamwork, creativity or ethical commitment, which enrich and complete the profile of our students.

An example of going one step further than a theoretical education is the fact that our students have access to clinics and hospitals, a HUB at the Alcobendas campus designed to reinforce and promote entrepreneurship, and a Simulated Hospital, a clear example of an innovative and interdisciplinary environment that is so important to help our students train for their future. Universidad Europea is also firmly committed to collaborative research as a way of guaranteeing that our faculty is constantly updated; results in recent years endorse our efforts in this field.

Out commitment to excellence is also represented by our schools, which are recognized and accredited worldwide. As an example of this daily work I just want to highlight some of the recognitions and awards that mean we really are at the forefront: in 2015, the prestigious international QS Stars rating, which classifies the quality of institutions, recognized the excellence of our faculty, our international perspective and the employability of our students, with a rating on par with Cambridge, Oxford and Harvard; and our School of Architecture, Engineering and Design obtained NAAB accreditation, the first Private School of Architecture in Spain and in the European Union to do so. Our Physical Activity, Sport and Physical Therapy department has also achieved international accreditations such as WCPT and EHFA and, in Social Sciences, our bachelor’s degree programs can be completed at the prestigious London School of Economics and Political Science. Our faculty also has ACBSP accreditation for our Business degree programs.

Furthermore, we are the only Spanish member institution of an international network of universities: Laureate International Universities, which has higher education institutions over the five continents and over one million students. Being part of a great, global family affords our students countless opportunities for periods of study abroad, exchanges and internships abroad.

With the Laureate Network we share a common spirit. “Here for Good,” because we firmly believe in the power of education to generate change and we are convinced that the best way to contribute to progress in our society is through our students. A reflection of this commitment to social improvement is Universidad Europea’s accreditation as a B Corp® corporation (Certified B Corporation®), which accredits us as having a high level of commitment to social and environmental issues, to transparency and corporate responsibility.

A commitment and daily effort that makes this University a unique institution. Thank you to everyone.

Juan Morote Sarrión, 
Rector of the Universidad Europea de Madrid
