"This opportunity to link these two elite programs is a great next step in the global sports business learning process for both our students and those at Escuela Universitaria Real Madrid Universidad Europea," said Scott Rosner, Professor of Professional Practice and the Academic Director of the Sports Management Program. "Our goal is to mix the academic and the practical experiences for all, and by having our students spend a part of their program time in and around a worldwide recognized business like Real Madrid C.F., as well as being able to bring their students to New York later in the spring, really encapsulates the kind of things we have started to do. It's a very exciting experience for all."
"We applaud Scott and his team for developing and executing what we believe will be the start of a long term relationship between Escuela Universitaria Real Madrid Universidad Europea and Columbia," added Jason Wingard, Dean and Professor of the School of Professional Studies at Columbia University.

We look forward to seeing and hearing the best practices that will arise from this union".

"This cooperation between Escuela Universitaria Real Madrid Universidad Europea MBA- Master's Degree in Sports Management Program and Columbia University's Sports Management graduate program certifies the leadership of both institutions in Sports Higher Education," said Jesús García Velasco, International Expansion Director of Escuela Universitaria Real Madrid Universidad Europea.
