What is42 Madrid?


42 Madrid is much more than a programming campus. It is an academy with values, attitude and that teaches "hard and soft skills". An area of 5,000 m2, located in the heart of the Telefónica District, where, with the help of Fundación Telefónica, a disruptive model of training is provided to meet all the challenges and digital profiles demanded by the labour market. And this is all achieved by breaking away from patterns and paradigms with a methodology based on gamification and "peer to peer" networks, a philosophy centred on "learning to learn" and a space in which creativity, effort, self-improvement and teamwork are encouraged. As a result, 42 Madrid is the learning place of the moment.

But, above all, 42 Madrid is UP TO YOU: You choose what to study and at what pace.
