Business Administration (Football Industries)

The Football Industries MBA (FIMBA) programme is the original, and still the only, Football Industries MBA. As an MBA programme, it has the real business focus that management positions in modern sport demand. Delivered in partnership with The National Football Centre, St. George's Park, it focuses on the professionalism and business of the beautiful game. If you want to work in the global football industry-with clubs, governing bodies or related marketing, media and sponsorship companies-this is the MBA programme for you. The FIMBA programme is the top ranked sports MBA in the UK and the top-ranked football master's in the world (SportBusiness International's 2015 Postgraduate Sports Course Rankings). The core elements of the programme - leadership, strategy, managing the environment, innovation, entrepreneurship, managing financial resources - are delivered in concentrated blocks to encourage a deeper understanding, with a strong emphasis on interactive teaching and learning. The specialist football modules apply business concepts to modern football. You'll gain a critical awareness of issues in football management, law, and marketing. Crucially, you'll receive vocational training for the industry, including the Becoming a Football Executive module and a Sports Operations Management module currently run with the assistance of UEFA. ‌The broader skills you'll acquire include analysis, problem solving, creativity and decision-making. The Becoming a Football Executive module will also serve to strengthen and hone your interpersonal, communication and leadership abilities. Based in Liverpool, the football hotbed of the North-West of England, English clubs are accessible as laboratories for students to put theory into practice.

Entry requirements

MBA Candidates are normally expected to have a minimum of 2-3 years of substantive managerial experience in the private or public sector.
Candidates will normally be expected to hold a 2:1 Honours degree (which may be in any discipline) from a UK university, or an equivalent professional qualification from a similar non-UK institution. Non-graduates who possess extensive professional experience are encouraged to apply. A GMAT score is not a mandatory requirement; however, we do encourage candidates who have undertaken the examination to submit their scores for consideration alongside other criteria during the admissions process. We look for a balanced score across all components of the GMAT and will only accept scores which are still valid (attained within the last 5 years) by the time of entry to the programme.
