This course is aimed at a broad spectrum of students and practitioners. It is suitable for those who want to pursue senior management positions within the sports industry or to prepare for doctoral study.
Professional experience

The Professional Enquiry module requires students to engage in the professional world. Personal and professional growth take place through implementation of change in professional practice and concomitant reflective practice. Students also perform some goal settings exercises and assess weaknesses and strengths with regard to employability skills to allow for adequate self-development and vision beyond the MSc. Some students may identify a need for them to develop their knowledge of innovation, entrepreneurship and small business management, which forms the basis of one of our optional modules.
Employment prospects

Management positions exist within marketing, sales, planning, sports events, sport administration and facility management. Organisations that offer these positions include professional sport clubs, sport governing bodies, sport public agencies, sport community recreation departments, sporting goods companies, sport marketing agencies, sport event organisers, health and leisure clubs and athletic service organisations.

The course will enable you to enhance your skills, sector-specific knowledge, expertise and employability attributes, making the transition from study to a meaningful career a more seamless process.

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.
