The Football Business (Online) programme at UCFB x GIS provides opportunities to engage in different aspects of football business including areas such as governance and regulation, consumer engagement, operational management and business development.
Football is a global, multi-billion-pound business that shows no sign of slowing down. Bumper TV deals and huge transfer fees mean more money than ever is flowing through the game, ensuring it’s vital that there are personnel ready to jump straight in and shape its future.
From TV deals to player transfers, football is now a global, multi-billion-pound industry that is in need of more industry-specific qualified individuals.
The football industry is one of many opportunities for budding professionals, and also poses numerous challenges on a personal and business level. Events like relegation can cause a club to lose millions of pounds overnight, so it is essential to have the knowledge and experience to be able to deal with such eventualities. This Football Business (Online) programme with GIS will allow students to be aware of the diverse and often unique situations that impact on the football business, as well as recognise best practice and ethical choices.
The programme has been developed for those with aspirations towards senior management positions within the core functional departments of the football industry, spanning financial and accounting roles or operational roles within football, including the ability to rise to senior managerial roles due to the management aspect of the degree.
