The football industry has developed tremendously over the past years and continues its spectacular rise as witnessed by increases in TV rights deals, transfer numbers, and participation levels, to name just a few, around the world. Unfortunately, due to a lack of professionalism, transparency and ethics a lot of scandals keep taking place and more fans and stakeholders than ever are demanding change. And that is where The Football Business Academy comes into play. Our mission is to meet this need for professionally trained leaders.
Created for people who want to break into the football industry, our school offers a Professional Master in Football Business which provides all the necessary tools to succeed in this passionate and dynamic industry.
Business tools needed to break into the Football industry : knowledge, experience, and network. And the importance lies in having all of them, which is why our master program is based on five different axes :
- Online and on campus courses
- Provided internship placement
- Student Business Projects
- Field trips
- Business events powered by Soccerex, the global leader for football business events
At The FBA, we select the best candidates who are also passionate about football. Our main objective is to prepare them for a successful entry into the football industry.
