During the course students will have access to three optional study trips:
- At the start of the course, a week in Madrid to meet their classmates and professors and the professionals of Real Madrid.
- During the course, a “White Week” in Madrid, with meetings with managers of the different departments of the club.
- A trip to New York, a globally relevant location for the sports industry, which will be fundamental for enriching and expanding students' understanding of different management models.
The trips are designed to be educational and to extend students' learning “in situ”, including classes, lectures and visits to sports venues. With the distance study mode, the trips are optional. Accommodation and travel costs are not included in the price, and the trip to New York will require an additional enrolment fee of €1,000.
