UCFB: MSc Football Business (Online)
|Telephone||0333 222 6337|
Football is a global, multi-billion-pound business that shows no sign of slowing down. Bumper TV deals and huge transfer fees means more money than ever is flowing through the game, ensuring it’s vital that there are personnel ready to jump straight in and shape its future.
The MSc Football Business qualification is designed for those who wish to develop an appreciation of key areas shaping the current landscape of the football industry. The programme provides opportunities to engage in different aspects of football business including areas such as governance and regulation, consumer engagement, operational management and business development. From TV deals to player transfers, football is now a global, multi-billion-pound industry that is in need of more industry specific qualified individuals.
The football industry is one of many opportunities for budding professionals, and also poses numerous challenges on a personal and business level. Events like relegation can cause a club to lose millions of pounds overnight, so it is essential to have the knowledge and experience to be able to deal with such eventualities. This programme will allow students to be aware of the diverse and often unique situations that impact on the football business, as well as recognise best practice and ethical choices.
By having the opportunity to learn from the comfort of their own home, programme participants will be able to gain a further qualification to enhance their career prospects in a format that offers flexible hours and the chance to dictate their own work-life balance to fit around other commitments. This programme is ideal for those who already work, or aspire to work, in senior positions within the sports industry, and offers the flexibility to allow participants to gain a Masters degree qualification around their busy lifestyle.
The programme is available through the UCFB Online Hub, which is accessible on mobile devices including tablets, phones and laptops. The UCFB Online Hub also has an app which you can download to access the programme content. This means you can truly study while on the go and around your other commitments.
Graduates of the MSc Football Business (Online) programme will be awarded degrees by our esteemed academic partner institution, Bucks New University.
