The Centro Español de Nuevas Profesiones (CENP), or “the Spanish Center of New Professions,” is a private teaching center, established in the city of Madrid in 1957 and with a branch in the city of La Coruna (since 1967).  CENP’s principal objective, defined from the very start of its existence, is the higher education of young people in emerging professional areas, all with the knowledge that education is the key element in developing skills such as leadership, creativity and adaptation to change. To date, more than 50,000 students have graduated from the programs at CENP, trained in areas, which at the time, had yet to be addressed in traditional university programs.


The mission of CENP is the training of young people in emerging professional areas with a high demand in the market place. In following that mission, CENP has become one of the best private schools in its field in Spain.


CENP’s vision in the upcoming years is to continue to satisfy the demand of economic sectors that are in constant growth, and to train and provide professionals that are capable, qualified and aware of the new market tendencies. CENP is a pioneer in the type of education and training it provides, characterized from its beginnings by openness and innovation, not only in the development of course content, but also in the methodology employed, incorporating hands-on professional experience with theoretical training.  For this, CENP relies on an excellent and dedicated teaching staff, always attentive to the changing demands of today’s marketplace. In both their theoretical and practical knowledge, the students of the center have much to offer and tend to rapidly gain employment due to the solid training and practical experience they have received.
