The MBA programme entered The Economist’s ‘Which MBA?’ top 100 global ranking in 2015.

The Football Industries MBA (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. Delivered in partnership with The National Football Centre, St. George’s Park, it focuses 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 FIMBA programme is the top ranked sports MBA in the UK and the top-ranked football master’s in the world (SportBusiness International’s 2015 Postgraduate Sports Course Rankings).

The core elements of the programme – leadership, strategy, managing the environment, innovation, entrepreneurship, 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, law, and marketing.

Crucially, you’ll receive vocational training for the industry, including the Becoming a Football Executive module and a Sports Operations Management module currently run with the assistance of UEFA.

The broader skills you’ll acquire include analysis, problem solving, creativity and decision-making. The Becoming a Football Executive module will also serve to strengthen and hone your interpersonal, communication and leadership 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.

The Certificate in Business Administration Football Industries course provides those who hold an MBA (or international equivalent), with the opportunity to study the MBA Football Industries football-related modules. The modules, which are delivered in partnership with The National Football centre, St George’s Park, focus on aspects of the football industry such as professionalism, business and marketing. The certificate is also suitable for those seeking to work in, or those already working in football, with modules suitable for clubs, governing bodies or related marketing, media and sponsorship companies.

Our partnership enables CBA(FI) students to benefit from the expertise of one of the sport’s biggest governing bodies through guests speakers and practical learning opportunities as well as developing distinct pathways from education into employment. Courses like Sports Operations Management, currently run with the assistance of UEFA, give practical insight into managing some of the world’s biggest sports events.

The FIMBA programme is the top ranked sports MBA in the UK and the top-ranked football master’s in the world (SportBusiness International’s 2015 Postgraduate Sports Course Rankings).

If you wish to gain industry experience our placement scheme will assist you in this. CBA graduates have an excellent record in terms of either gaining employment in the football industry or developing their existing careers in football.

CBA students are taught alongside students studying the prestigious MBA Football Industries (FiMBA) programme. CBA students therefore benefit from this network as well as gaining access to the FiMBA Alumni Network, made up of over 300 graduates, most of whom are currently working in football.

Taken full-time, the programme runs from the end of September to the start of May with a one month break over the Christmas period, and students on average will need to be in Liverpool for one full day a week. Students who already possess football industry experience may instead choose to start the programme in mid-November.

Alongside the taught aspects of the programme, CBA students will also benefit from:

- A comprehensive programme of guest speakers drawn from top football executives throughout the world
- A series of football industry visits and networking events (including a stand at Soccerex’s Global Forum in Manchester)
- A dedicated football industry archive
- A placement co-ordinator and football-specific careers advice
- Support provided by a FiMBA or FiCBA alumnus currently working in the football industry.

This 9 month programme consists of five compulsory modules. The programme can also be delivered on a CPD basis.
