Summary

The MBA Football Industries (FIMBA) programme is the original, and still the only, Football industries MBA. As an MBA programme, it has the real business focus that management positions in modern sport demand. Focusing on the professionalism and business of the beautiful game, if you want to work in the global football industry— with clubs, governing bodies or related marketing, media and sponsorship companies— this is the MBA programme for you.

The core elements of the programme—leadership, strategy, organisations, innovation, international business and the global environment, entrepreneurship and managing financial resources—are delivered in concentrated blocks to encourage a deeper understanding, with a strong emphasis on interactive teaching and learning. The specialist football modules apply business concepts to modern football. You’ll gain a critical awareness of issues in football management, finance and law. Crucially, you’ll receive vocational training for the industry, including the Becoming a Football Executive module and Sports Operations Management module. The broader skills you’ll acquire include analysis, problem-solving, creativity and decision-making. The Becoming a Football Executive module will also strengthen your career management skills and hone your interpersonal communication abilities. Based in Liverpool, the football hotbed of the North-west of England, English clubs are accessible as laboratories for students to put theory into practice.

If you already hold an MBA or are working in the industry and would like to study the football specific modules only, we offer a Certificate in Business Administration (Football Industries).
