UCFB has developed a profile of pioneering postgraduate qualifications to enable those working within the industry to drive forward their career, and to provide a gateway for those aspiring to pursue their ambitions of working in this exciting global multi-billion-pound market sector.
As with all of our programmes, our postgraduate degrees are taught by leading figures in football business and sport academia. Our students will have the opportunity to hear from and work with leaders from the industry and develop specific interests through a research dissertation.
Each programme has been designed with the worldwide industry suitably in mind to ensure each student gains the best-in-class business and management skills required to be a success across the football, sport and events industries.
A unique and popular aspect of our Masters programmes is a ground breaking partnership with the Real Madrid Graduate School – Universidad Europea, the education arm of the world’s biggest football club, which sees MSc International Sport Management students gain the unprecedented opportunity to live, learn and work in the Spanish capital during the one-year programme.
As a capstone to the Masters degrees, students may have an opportunity to specialise their academic experience by undertaking a research project with a sports organisation, leveraging UCFB’s global network of contacts with leading organisations such as The Football Association, BBC Sport, the US Tennis Association, the Rugby Football League, as well as a multitude of football and sporting clubs both domestically and overseas. MSc students are also encouraged to apply for short term placements, internships and projects via our dedicated Employability and Enrichment team.
