Overview

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.

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.
