The 12 months in the Professional Master in Football Business from Football Business Academy are divided into 4 modules. In order to deliver the best football business leaders of tomorrow, we believe it is essential for our Candidates to gain knowledge of the football industry across all three dimensions:

  • the past, as a cultural sensibility is essential to understand the origins and (recent) history of the sport;
  • the present, in order to discover all football stakeholders and analyse the best practices;
  • the future, because in this ever moving industry, it is crucial to come with an innovative mind, with new ideas and solutions to better address today’s key issues and develop tomorrow’s opportunities.

Combine knowledge with participation at Soccerex events

Finally, the fourth module combines a Student Business Project with additional industry specifics for Candidates to expand their knowledge of. 

The SBP will be sanctioned by one of our Partner Network members and will give Candidates the opportunity to work in teams on a real project given by a football club, federation, or other football-related organization, thereby allowing them to keep moving forward into the football industry.
