Master's Programmes

Hospitality, Leisure & Sports (1)



The FBA are well aware of how fast the football industry keeps growing and changing. Yet, contrary to how other professional industries such as law, medicine, or accounting are set up, football has been lacking a learning structure, which allows its professionals to continuously re-educate themselves and truly understand how new trends or laws can influence their business success. 

Therefore, their commitment to their alumni is to give them lifetime access to course material and FBA events so they can stay ahead of the game and exchange ideas and opinions with younger generations, thereby creating a unique, continuous learning environment which benefits everyone involved.


The FBA selects the best candidates who are also passionate about football. Their main objective is to prepare them for a successful entry into the football industry.
