Top Program

Excellent Students

As is customary every year, Universidad Europea de Madrid launches the High Capacity Student Program (TOP Program) targeted at students who have shown an outstanding academic performance during the stages prior to university education who wish to continue their training in a university degree program and benefit from the TOP (Talented, Outstanding People) Program.

Thanks to the experience and success of the program during its three previous editions, the university still considers it essential to support and develop the personal and professional skills of these students as much as possible, thereby completing their university training and guaranteeing their professional success and their contribution of value to social progress.
