In recent months, the club has shared an ambitious vision covering a plethora of projects and departments, many of which are well suited to receive the support of the diverse profiles FBA Candidates represent. From digital transformation and commercial growth strategies to facilities development and the Rangers Charity Foundation, the club will be able to tap into a broad range of skills, ideas and perspectives.

The FBA’s Professional Master in Football Business selects Candidates from different academic and professional backgrounds who are then exposed to a very practical learning journey. This includes a wide range of courses taught by industry experts on topics such as Football Industry Macro Trends, Financial Strategy in Football, Women’s Football Development, and Stadium Business Operations, complemented by a guaranteed internship, Field Trips, networking events, and a Student Business Project.

Through this partnership, Rangers will be able to ‘scout’ football business talent and benefit from external views on how the club can learn from other best practices and innovative solutions from around the world.
