Access

New access profile and degree route access.

The Master’s Degree has as its objective to train the new executives for the sports world and is especially aimed at graduates wishing to focus their professional careers towards sports management. It is also aimed at professionals in the sector wishing to update their knowledge, professionals from other sectors wishing to join the sports world and professional athletes who wish to continue their activity in the sports world in management positions.

The recommended access profile is of graduates of Physical Activity and Sports Sciences (especially those focusing on sports management) and graduates in areas relating to business and international management.

Access Requirements 

In order to access the Master’s Degree, the student must satisfy the legal requirements in accordance with R.D. 861/2010:

  • In order to access the Master’s degree, it will be necessary to have an official Spanish university degree or other issued by a higher education institution in the European Higher Education Area which allows the candidate in the country where the degree was issued, to access postgraduate Master’s Degrees.  
  • Those candidates who have obtained their degrees in educational systems outside the EHEA will also be able to access the course without the need to get their degree officially recognized, once the University has ensured that their degree is equivalent to the corresponding official Spanish university degree and allows the candidate, in the country where the degree was issued, to access postgraduate studies. Access via this route will not imply the official recognition of the prior undergraduate degree, nor its recognition for any other purpose other than to access the Master’s Degree.

Professional practices

Internships in companies are a key element in your education. Acquiring experience and putting into practice what you have learned on your degree is the best way to enter the labor market. There are two types of internship, curricular (which are included as part of your program) and extracurricular (which you can do on a voluntary basis).

In order to carry out an internship in a company, you’ll need to have passed 50% of your credits and register before you start the internship. Both the company and a professor on your course will monitor your progress on the internship as well as providing an evaluation at the half way mark and upon completion. 

If you want to gain extra work experience before finalizing your university studies, you are welcome to carry out extracurricular internships. You can carry them out in whichever year of your studies you choose but we remind you that internships are formative and should complement your studies. The more theoretical knowledge you have acquired throughout your degree, the more you will benefit from the internships.
