This pioneering programme has been developed as a transformational journey suited for graduates of all disciplines, as well as for current professionals working within various sectors of the sport industry, for example in management, marketing or operations.

In addition to the inimitable degree programme delivered at UCFB Wembley’s world class facilities, students will be able to enhance their understanding of the business and operations of a sporting superpower through a unique period spent at the Real Madrid Graduate School – Universidad Europea, the educational arm of the world’s biggest football club.

As a capstone to the MSc International Sport Management degree, 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 companies 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.

At UCFB we bridge the gap between academia and business. In parallel to the academic curriculum run the Employment & Enrichment events; a journey of professional and personal development through learning and knowledge enhancement activities. The Employment & Enrichment events allow access to industry leading guest speakers, business opportunities and additional classes.
